Farmallb said: (quoted from post at 19:21:58 07/18/14) Well, I hate to sound like a broken record, lol, but YES I have both the operators manual and the repair manual for the bailer. I can take a pipe wrench onto the pto shaft and easily turn the bailer. Ive had it hooked and running off my 48 H Farmall several times before I got the 990 D Brown.

The U joints on the bailer are fine.

I was standing behind the tractor/bailer, and at an angle to see both easily. Boy was driving it. I was trying to bale long stem haygrazer that was around 3 to 4ft tall. I saw the smoke. From where I stood it looked like it was coming from the rear. Boy said it came up from all around him. The tractor wouldn't start, and was HARD to shift. I couldn't shift the PTO out of gear.

A day later I tried to run the tractor and shift the PTO in gear. No Go. I stopped the tractor and could THEN shift it into geat. Then I started the tractor and it ran fine for a couple minutes. I shut it off.

If the baler runs on the H then we can assume it's okay. First I would check the clutch adjustments per the manual. I'd also check the PTO shaft like I posted earlier. If the clutch is properly adjusted and there is no indication that the PTO bearing in the rear end is bad then you probably toasted the PTO clutch. You can pull off the inspection cover on the bottom of the bell housing and check the clearances per the manual, but you're probably looking at splitting the tractor and replacing the PTO clutch disc and probably the pressure plate. Your boy saying the smoke was coming up all around him sure sounds like the PTO disc cooking. Probably smelled like hot brakes? Might as well do the drive line disc too and the throw out bearing. I just did this and it cost me about $1200.00 with a friend only charging $150 for the use of his garage and his help. To got to a shop and have it done I'd figure at least $1500.00.
Any chance your boy was riding the clutch pedal and burnt out the throw out bearing? Does it shift through the road gears okay? Is it only the PTO thats giving issues?

Just went out and tried the transmission on the DB. This is Sat. IT WORKS GREAT. Not the slightest bit of grind in it.
