    find the wiring harness coming from the electric clutch. Seperate the connector (usually about one foot out of the clutch) to discover the 2 wires. Hot wire 12vdc to this connector to activate the clutch. You can steal the voltage from the battery. For a temporary situation, interrupt the positive side of the 12 volts with a toggle switch, a big heavy one. Run the negative wire straight to ground. A flip of the switch, and you are off. Remember to replace the original on/off switch and return things to their original condition. Should the clutch not work with straight 12 volts, check the air spacing at the 3 locations around the clutch perimeter. Adjust to 12 thousandths thickness, if adjustment is needed. Everything should be fine.
