Hello, I have a 2## series John Deer lawn tractor for use on my own lawn. A feature on it that I find most asinine and annoying is the Reversing Safety Switch on the PTO. In order to reverse with the deck running I have to pull the PTO switch up and hold it. I assume pretty safely it is there due to some ridiculous law suit. Problem is I can not turn in the seat to see behind me while reversing because I have to keep one hand on the wheel and one pulling on the PTO switch keeping my upper body facing forward. I find this more dangerous and stupid then not having the switch at all. My ZTR travels at almost twice the speed as the little John Deer and I have full freedom of movement while mowing, but lets not give the unscrupulous lawyers any ideas. I have looked at the PTO switch from behind and it has about 8-10 wires coming out of it. I assume a permanent fix would be to solder two certain wires together to keep the circuit completed at all times. Problem is I do not know which two wires or more need to be connected. If anyone out there has any knowledge on how to solve my problem I would appreciate you sharing the info. My last resort is just a cloths line pin, but I would rather fix the problem instead of jerry rigging something. I apologize if asking this kind of question is against forum rules.
