So I picked up a 317 where the PO to the PO repowered with a Kohler Command CH18S. Honestly picked it up cheap for the engine in case my other 317 with the series 1 K17 decides to blow up. I discovered that the PTO didn't work and when I put a replacement PTO switch in I discovered that the two prong connecter wasn't on the switch but jumpered out of the loop. So I put the switch on correctly(removing the jumper) and simply turned the key and flipped the PTO switch to see if I could hear the clutch engage, nothing. Then I turned the switch off and now turning the ignition switch does nothing. Upon further inspection it looks like the wiring is a cobbled together mess. Any tips on where to start and what to look for?
Slight update:. Disconnecting and reconnecting battery terminals lets me start it again...now to figure out the wiring mess or if it's just a bad clutch...needle in a haystack.
