Electric PTO Issue

OK what am I missing? The electric PTO clutch on my AGCO ALLIS 2020LC (Simplicity Legacy) lawn mower does not engage (there is a "click" when the switch is activated). 1. Replaced the switch and have power to the PTO Connector. A test light attached to the connector lights up when I activate the PTO switch. 2. Resized the air gap and checked Ohms on the clutch assy; talked to the service tech at Ogura (clutch Mfgr) and was advised that the clutch was defective since the Ohms was too high. 3 Bit the bullet and paid the $400 for a new clutch and I still have the same issue....the PTO clutch does not engage.
The spindles are free and can turn the blades by hand. So now I have a new switch, a new clutch, my wallet is a lot lighter, and have not fixed the problem! Any suggestions on the cause?

    Jim is the man to talk over there, guy knows his stuff inside and out. Did you call him back after installing the new clutch.

    Low voltage can effect the clutch too. Try with a battery charger hooked to it and see if it makes a difference. If so, you'll want to verify that the stator is charging and the battery is good. Check all connections and be certain they're tight.

    I agree with MowrFixr.
    If you have a multimeter you can check the voltage on the connector going to the electric clutch.
