Ford 3000 PTO Jumping Out Of Gear??????????

Can someone please help me understand why my pto keeps jumping out of gear? I have the Ford 3000 tractor split at the trans/rear axle jount and the coupling gears seem to be ok and mesh fine. The detent spring and ball have good pressure at the lever, yet to keep it engaged I must keep back pressure on the lever with my foot. This makes manuvering miserable at times. I am running a bush hog with it. Plaese advise. Thanks

I had this problem on a 861, and the problem was the PTO shaft had twisted inisde the tractor where the PTO shaft mated to the gears. I changed the shaft, no more problems. You could see the twist in the shaft, it was very easily seen.

Usually the reason the PTO will not stay in gear is because of a loose PTO bearing. This can be caused by a badly worn bearing, a broken snapring groove in the PTO bearing housing or the bearing retainer sleeve having moved from where it should be.

Any movement front to back will cause it to jump out of gear.

The PTO coupling splines can also be worn and cause it to jump out of gear too, but not as often as the before mentioned things.

The detent is another thing to examine but it is less likely to be the problem.

Always be sure that the telescoping portion of the drive shaft is well lubricated or it can damage the PTO bearing etc.

If the problem isn't obvious, a bunch of things that result from wear could cause it. In transmissions, rails and forks come to mind in addition to the linkage. Excessive shaft end-play and worn gears also will do it. Very experienced mechanics often can just wiggle things around and spot what's out of whack. I always had to rely on test procedures in a manual.

I know I'm not much help here, and I'm probably just saying what you already know.

Thanks for your input, I am leaning toward the bearing at the end of the output shaft. It seems to be worn out. Thanks again, Richie
