    Ok, so my new W/B Gravely has 20 hrs on it. Spent two hours this morning putting the new mulch kit on. Works beautifully on the first stop. Don't use it on the 2nd stop. Third stop - pull the pto/clutch and nada. The only thing I can say is the last time I turned it off I noticed alot of "braking noise" from the blade braking mechanisms. I know the main switch is working because if it is engaged, and I put on the parking brakes, the engine will do its safety stall, but if the switch is not engaged, and I put on the parking brakes, the engine keeps running.
    Suggestions from those who have experienced aggravations from electric clutches? Something simple preferably :help:
