I was mowing along fine the other day, and after hitting a rut, the blades stopped turning.
When I engage the PTO, I hear a 'chattering', and, if the deck belt is removed, the pulley spins, however I can grab it with my hand and stop it.
I've had the main seal leaking for quite a while, and I'm wondering if oil finally found it's way in the right place to make it slip.
Does anyone have an idea how I might clean it? I'm not sure what I want to shoot in there. I was thinking brake cleaner, but that may be too harmful to the windings in the coil. I tried high pressure air, but that didn't seem to work.
Does it actually come apart? I can't seem to find anything that talks about dis assembly of it.
