Wheel Horse keeps burning fuse

My Wheel Horse 265-H blew its Main/Starter fuse ten days ago, while running along happily otherwise.

It is a 30 amp blade fuse, and easily replaced.

It did it again today, while driving. I cannot find any crossed, crimped or twisted wires.

What else to check? Is it the Starter? Ignition switch?

Any advice will be much appreciated. For now, I have a little bag of spare fuses taped to the console, but that is hardly a fix.

Thanks,

Antifa

An intermittent short can be hard to find. If this has an electric PTO clutch, I would start by looking there, since that is the common cause for intermittent blown fuses. I suspect the bearings in it to be bad or the internal electro-magnetic coil to be shorted.

Thanks

Yes, this tractor has an electric PTO clutch, and I would love to disconnect it. I never use the PTO. This tractor just tows a trailer around the property.

What's the best way to simply remove the PTO circuit -- simply twist the wires together?
