John deere F525 mower won't stop turning.

I have a 1994 John Deere F525 front mower. Recently after cuttinggrass I pushed down the pto switch to desengage blades. The blades continued to turn. Now when I start the mower up the blades automatically engage. I discontected the pto switch. The blades still engage when cranked.

Unplug the wires at the pto clutch and see if it still does it. If so, the clutch has gone bad.

Do you have power to the clutch?

power to clutch

I assume there is power to the clutch as the mower starts and moves forward and backward. Could it be a relay ? On the right side of the engine compartment there are 2 relays side by side.

The PTO clutch that sends power to the mower deck is mostly unrelated to whether or not the mover will move forward or backward. You need to check for power to the clutch at the connector next to the clutch which will help determine if the problem is with the tractor wiring or something in the clutch.

Also, I would double check that you have the correct clutch and that it's installed properly. Make sure the correct washers and spacers were used and put in the right places.

Post It is all good

I had put the deck on improperly.There is an arm on the letf side of the deck that attaches back toward the wheel. There is a slot that arm fits. The arm comes from the pulley for the secondary belt. Thanks for all the help.
