Clutch disengages

    The Clutch on my Gravely WB (15HP Kawasaki; pull start) disengages while mowing. If I hold still, the blades will keep turning (tried this today. They kept going for 10+ minutes). As soon as I tried to mow, the blades stopped. This all started the other day after I was going around a Blue Spruce and my oil fill loosened and oil began to shoot out (probably lost a couple of ounces). I cleaned it up good, but a bit might have dripped onto the clutch. Do you think this is causing the problem? If so, then why just under load? Any advice/help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Make sure the wires (+ & -) are connected and working.
