    Hey all,

    So I was hoping someone could give me some info about what might be the cause of my PTO problem, or at least some insight into how it works. Here goes..

    If I turn the machine on, and flick the eleactric pto switch (just replaced) it will work fine. However, if i turn it off, it wont come back on. Furthermore, if I let it sit for a few minutes, and try again, it will engage fine. Also sometimes I will cut the ignition, or pull the choke a few times and it'll switch back on as well. Any help? Or should I just bite the bullet and buy a new pto.

    The machine is a John Deere HD75, hydro, 2003? model, 350hrs, 17hp kawasaki w/54" deck.
