I have an older Toro Z325 that was throwing a belt. Checked the manual and had to remove the PTO clutch (Warner #5218-79). It was functioning fine before removal. Put everything back together Torque per manual and now it will not engage, it's trying but not engaging. Had it apart 4 or 5 times and tried different torque values around what is listed (50-60 ft. Lbs.) Anybody have any ideas.
Thanks in advance
Mike

if air gap is adjustable check it for being out too much. Make sure 12 volts at coil wires to energize coil

Air gap is not adjustable, pretty sure I've got 12+ volts. I think it's got something to do with how tight it is. Just not sure.

check the resistance of the coil with OHM meter to confirm coil it good

Will do, I think the problem is that I didn't take the whole clutch off just the outer casing with the anchor point. When I get home today I'm going to take it all off and put it back on as a unit instead of piecemeal.
Thanks I'll let you know how it goes

Well went out in the sauna to work on the Z325. It was as I suspected I only took the front half of the PTO (the part with the magnets) off to change the belt. After taking the whole PTO off I found out that the plate that movea was on the wrong side of the magnets once put in correctly, torqued to spec turned on as normal. Thanks for all the ideas and support, I am now a happy camper.
