Here is the story. I bought a 1811 that was repowered with a brand new m18 and had 27 hours on it. The tractor was rough. I bought a 782 in good shape and I swapped out engines. I put new tires, wheel weights, and bought a deck.

First time I went to mow and the pto gave out. So I bought a new xtreme pto. I got it installed and check my voltage at full throttle 13.67v. Which is good. I torqued the pto to 55 lbs. I burnished the clutch like told. I went to mow and it ran great. 5 min into it it started running rough. And died. Had to clean the carb. Once I got the carb clean it ran great. But now my pto won't stay engaged. If i hold it up it will stay on. Any ideas?

Bad switch or relay or a bad connection in the plug on either of them will do that. Or a bad ground on the clutch itself.  The original clutch bolted onto the engine and from your pictures it looks like the new clutch is a mag stop type and might not have a good enough ground.  Hope this helps.                                   Stewart

That new clutch has its own ground wire so make sure it's grounded good. Like mentioned it could be a bad relay or connection somewhere

It's grounded good. Is the relay the silver box on the side ?

Started checking all the systems. It ended up being the reverse micro switch. First cub I ever got to run long enough to mow a yard lol. I have another week of fine tuning.
