    Yep that's it Jim
    Worked real good only took maybe 30 min to install.

    Hope this can help others out that have the same thing happen.

    Ron, if you ever have the strap come loose on the PTO clutch, it rips out the wire as the clutch spins. JD only sells the entire wiring harness at around $80, but you can get a pigtail for a Stens PTO Clutch on ebay for less than $10 or around $15 with shipping. It's still high, but you just use wire nuts to do the repair and the brand new plug fits the JD clutch. It's easier and a bunch cheaper. Not knowing this stuff can cost you big bucks as you found out on your deck.

    Thanks for the info Jim.
    Yea I can see the dealer can get out of hand money wise.
    I do not mind paying for work but come on a new deck to fix what I just did.
