    My john deere 317 stalls when the front PTO switch is engaged. The clutch engages and the PTO starts to turn then the engine dies and won't run until the PTO switch is turned off. Any ideas what i am dealing with.

    Sounds like the seat safety switch is telling the clutch no ones home, That's a good starting point.
