Blade clutch.

The clutch will engage some times then other times it just sounds like it wants to. I got off mower with PTO switch on and walked to the back once and was going to jiggle the wire but before I could it came on but I noticed sparks coming from clutch as it engaged. Is it about to go or is it just in the circuit?

I had a similar problem with my scag W/B. I checked the gab, replaced the switch. It ended up being a plastic connector wore out and was grounding out against the frame of the mower. Check all the connections

Check voltage to the clutch before replacing. If you do end up having to replace the clutch, there a trick to removing them using an air hammer. Back the bolt part way out, and use the air hammer on the bolt while you assist it with your other hand. I've had 0 luck using a 2 or 3 jaw puller. Just pulled the clutch apart in pieces.
