If the wiring is good, the switch may be the culprit!

Usually it is the switch..  How many hours?  Is the machine stored outside?  Might just be as simple as a dirty contact..  R & R the switch plug and check / clean the contacts..

Along with the prior mentioned recommendations, you might also want to check the clutch gap with a feeler gauge. Older clutches had a slot so you could enter a feeler gauge, some newer ones I've seen don't have that feature. I don't have the gap spec handy but may be in the .012 - .016 inch range, but you should verify first.

My neighbor has the same problem going on with his JD 111 or 112. Blade clutch cycles on and off. There are quite a few wires going to that clutch dash switch. Hope you fix yours soon and tell us what the problem was.
