I saw this mower deck engage before I bought it. I drove it 1/2 of a mile after I bought it. I tried to engage the PTO for the deck but nothing happened. I replaced the PTO switch. The deck didn't engage. Power is getting to wire going into the PTO clutch. The seat safety switch lights up on one side. Could it be the seat safety switch? Or, is it more likely a bad clutch? Thanks!

If you have power getting to the clutch, my guess would be the clutch. It might just need an adjustment. You could also see if the coil measures continuity with an ohm meter. See the attached image for the adjustment procedure.

Mark is right, you might also have low power to PTO. What voltage do you read at PTO wire at PTO connector? If lower than 12V might not engage. There may be a loose adjustment on PTO that Mark mentioned. Let us know , I have a 180 I could look at to help!
