    I've got a 2 yard Saltdogg SS with gas motor. When i start the engine, the clutch is already engaged and starts turning the conveyor. I'm sure the conveyor switch is in the OFF position and have even tried manipulating the switch while the motor is running thinking that maybe the switch was stuck.
    Does anyone have an idea why this may be happening and how to correct it? I'm thinking maybe the clutched is seized in the ON position. If so, is there anything I can spray on it?

    I would unplug the church from the switch first so you can rule out welded contacts in the switch. Second try smacking the clutch with a hammer to free it up.
