If you want to take the PTO shaft out, simply park the tractor with the front end in a ditch so that the transmission/hydraulic oil will pool forward in the housing and then remove the four bolts on the shaft housing to pull the pto shaft straight out. Or jack up and support the rear end to do the same thing. There is around 7 gals of oil in the housing.

You may want to open the side plates and see it the PTO lever is engaging correctly first.

When you have the brush hog hooked up and it won't spin up, can you lift the hog up off the ground at the same time? If you can, the PTO shaft is turning in the pump and the problem must be somewhere behind the pump. Maybe the ORC is busted and not transmitting power when a load is put on it?

Do I have to drain oil to inspect the pto lever is engaging?? The lift arms go up and down so I thought the lever was engaging properly or is there a seperate operation for the lift arms versua the pto shaft??

Check you ORC and make sure that its functioning properly. If you lift arms are working, the front half of the pto shaft is engaged in the pump and turning. If the external part of pto shaft isn"t turning either the ORC is damaged and slipping or the shaft is broken aft of the pump. Pull the right hand side plate off and look unless you find it"s the ORC.
