    The schematic is from a 1997 (I think) White GT-185 lawn tractor. I need to replace the PTO toggle switch, but do not want to pay $49. The switch has (I think) three poles. One is normally closed, and open when toggled (I think). The other two poles are the opposite. Am I reading the schematic right?

    Yes. Schematics usually/always show a switch or solenoid etc. in the unenergized or normal (read off) position.

    So, your switch has two poles normally open (NO), and one pole normally closed (NC).
