    Hi Dave,
    Going by the manual that Pete kindly attached, I would say that either the clutch/brake or the clutch attachment switch is faulty, see pge 27.

    Kryn I think you are on the money

    In the pic below the area circled in red would be the most likely issue followed by the area in purple? Would you or anyone else agree.



    Pete ... you're the man. Thanks for finding the manual

    Now to find these things where they really are, could not find a page that showed where to find it ... will scan thru the pages again, must say looking at a screen bigger than my phone was a big help

    Looks like you could bypass the switches to check to

    I'm no mechanic either, that being said, I have had a few ride on mowers as I live on an acre which is mostly an ironstone ridge. I try to mow after rain to avoid the dust, I see yours is very dusty. From your description, I would suggest that you blow out all of the "safety" switches with compressed air as these can cause issues if they are not clean.
    Regards,

    Under the seat, the blade engagement lever and the park brake and or clutch depending on the model. They are usually micro switches and it only takes one within the system to play up and then you have a problem.

    I think I'm right here .
    From the back of the ignition switch ,there is a white cable connect to terminal S .run a jumper wire to the body of the lawn mower .
    But get some other input from more knowledge folks ,I'm at the far reaches of my knowledge here .

    The S terminal on the ign switch is "Start" supply to the starter solenoid - don't ground it - it will blow the fuse on Start/Crank! With your foot on the brake/clutch pedal, the two upper contacts are closed so current can flow to the top two contacts in the attachment clutch switch (which must be closed ie. attachment clutch OFF) then to the starter solenoid to crank the engine.

    Looking at the circuit in detail, if the engine stalls when:
    a) you have your foot on the brake/clutch pedal and you engage the clutch attachment lever

    and

    b) you take your foot off the brake clutch pedal and the attachment lever is disengaged

    then the problem would seem to be the seat switch as it supplies the connection to ground for both the those ignition cut circuits.
