I have never heard of a fuse blowing when you shut the clutch off. There has to be more to this story, have you checked the air gap? Does it only happen when you have had it under prolonged use? To shut it off after your use if you remove the fuse is it fine to restart?

I'd look for a short in the wiring to the PTO interlock switch - a bare wire nearby or a defective switch itself. It sounds to me that a likely cause might be that the slight movement in the assembly as you pull the level back might be causing the short.

I'm guessing this is a riding mower with a gas engine and a battery/coil/breaker ignition system. If so, the fuse may be in the primary ignition coil winding circuit. A loss of resistance in the circuit would blow the fuse. In these type systems, current flows when the ignition switch and breaker points are closed. The primary coil circuit condition should be the same when the engine is just turned on and at shutdown. In a static engine, the breakers are most likely closed. The only difference in the circuit between a static and a running engine is that the breakers may be continuously closed. If the fuse blows only at shutdown, a heat or vibration sensitive component may be present. The ignition coil itself is a candidate. However, all this is speculation, since we don't know what kind of ignition system it is or what the fuse does.
