Resolution:
The braking resistor, or for higher horsepower ATV71 drive, the braking transistor/resistor kit, should connect between the PA and PB terminals.   There will either be a jumper or a DC choke connected between PA and PO, make sure this is not removed, the drive will not function without it.
