Thank you for your question on the tractor dieing when you let out the clutch or engage the mower deck switch.

It sounds like you replaced the PTO switch.

From your symptoms it is highly likely that the problem is in the seat switch.

This is under the seat and you can remove the connector and plug it back in to see if it was a bad connection that was the problem.

The other option is to replace the seat switch.

It could be other connections in the wire harness but the seat switch is the most likely one causing the problem.

Please let me know if that solved your problem.
