    I did purchase a relay the next day. I went to work on the machine and noticed that I did not fully plug the new pigtail into the wiring harness. It worked for a couple of minutes the 1st day and then quit. Corrected my oversight, put the relay in the tool box and everything works fine. I am saving the old pigtail because I can repair the short in the wire and have it for a spare.

    Electric clutch quit engaging yesterday. (My sons have been mowing a lot due to all the rain.) I checked the fuses-good. I immediately checked the pigtail-good. I went to the pto switch 12v going in, swith on-nothing out. Luckily I have a dealer 2 miles from my shop. Popped in new switch during lunchtime. Everything is good again. 2005 machine 300 hours.
