Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. I will be happy to assist you. I see your model has a diode in the clutch harness. If the diode fails, it will start blowing fuses. To repair the clutch you can cut the diode out of the harness, reconnect the wires, and be fine. Just make sure you use a crimp connector to connect the wire together. The image below will aid in the repair.

If the fuse still blows, the problem could be a defective PTO switch or a shorted wire.

I hope this is helpful. If you need further assistance, please feel free to reply below with more details.
