Electric PTOfor Troy Built riding mower

I just aquired a Troy Built mower and the previous owner said he ran over a dog chain and broke the shear pin. I have the deck off and am looking at the PTO at the bottomof the engine.

I do not see any shear pin.

When the knob to engage is pulled out on the console, the PTO clutch does not spin.

What is my next step?? Remove the clutch assy?

Is there a way to insure that the wiring is not the issue?

There is no shear pin for the PTO. The clutch is keyed to the crankshaft, but I doubt that is sheared. Could be though. Is there voltage going to the clutch?
