    Hello experts!
    I have a John Deere 111 Model #moo111h292131. I installed a used pto clutch for the deck. It worked fine, until I disengaged it and it wouldn't re-engage. I tested the switch and it tested ok.

    I have heard you can adjust them???? I also heard it will start again when cool. I don't want to buy a new one at over $250. Is there a simple cure?
    By the way, this model has the gas tank under the seat.
    Thanks in advance

    How long was it on before you disengaged? I had one that needed to cool before it would work again. Sometimes we'd give the spindle pulley a kick and it would engage.

    Mine has fits if the battery voltage is too low.
