Help...My PTO stops while mowing....

I have a John Deere L120 mower. I started mowing my yard, I get not very far in the first strip of mowing. The PTO stops while I am mowing. It will not start back up. I am not mowing anything real tall or thick. I have replaced the seat switch, the PTO button, The PTO clutch, and the PTO relay. It is still doing the same thing. I do not know what to do next. any suggestion? Sometimes if you bounce up and down on the seat the PTO will start again if the switch is in the on position. Also if you bounce up and down on the seat the motor backfires. Please help me figure this out.

Look at the wires under the mower frame going to the PTO clutch. Sometimes they get rubbed by the transmission belt and get rubbed through or almost through.
