Wasn't sure if this should be under the specific Husqvarna section since most brands have electric PTO's anyway...
I have a late 90's YTH 180 with about 900 hours, yesterday when I was going through some semi-high grass, a large puff of smoke appeared from under the front of the mower, it bogged down, then stalled, all in about 3 seconds.
The engine won't turn over now, I removed all of the belts and spark plugs, but still wont turn. It tries, but the PTO clutch tries to turn with it, hitting the stop tabs, which is why I think it won't turn over.
Tonight, I'm going to try to take the PTO off and see if it will crank then, but I'm just trying to understand this a little more.
Would I be correct in thinking that the clutch is frozen, and won't disengage?
