Testing a clutch
Was wondering if anyone could tell me a good way to test to see if a clutch is bad or not.
I just replaced the engine on my 2013 Snapper Pro S50XT ZT. When it was completed, I fired it up to test it...along with testing the PTO and making sure the blades spin.
I had success and everything seemed to work great, so I put the mower away.
A couple days later, I go to use it and nothing happens when I pull the PTO switch. I know that the switch still works because if I go to engage the blades when I am not sitting on the machine, it kills the engine, which tells me both the PTO and safety switches are working. I also know that the fuse is still good as well.
So am I wrong to think that maybe the clutch is now bad? Is there a good way to test it, or is there something else I should be looking at?
Thank you all in advance for your help!
