Just got through replacing the whole rebuilt two stage clutch assembly in a JD 5200.

When I got it all coupled back together I had a home made tool attached to the PTO that I"ve used over the years to turn the PTO when trying to get the splines to align and couple up. After it was together I could turn the PTO with no resistance at all with the special lever tool on the PTO shaft. This has me really worried as I can't understand how this could be. The lever was not even connected to the PTO throw out bearing when the free turning PTO was found. After I installed the PTO connecting rod to the PTO through out lever I could advance the lever to the down and locked position and there is now resistance on the PTO. My thinking is that it should be just the opposite?????

Please help me understand what is happening and if the PTO is going to work as it should?????

Thanks, Zane

They did them that way so you do not wear out the bearing when not using the PTO. Most tractors run more without the PTO engaged then with it in.

Dietz tractors where just the opposite. They ran the throwout bearing all of the time when it was disengaged. They put in a disconnect shift collar so you could engage the lever((release the bearing) and still not have the PTO shaft turn.

Got my answer on the JD page. Turns out the PTO clutch is engaged with the throwout bearing and is disengaged by retracting the throwout bearing. Sort of like a knuckle clutch as used on the old two cylinder JDs and lots of old bulldoziers and loader.

Thanks anyway,

you might want to post your problem in the John Deere forum, not here in Ford. Or in the Tractor forum (general).

I did post it on the JD board but thinking maybe some of the Ford guys could shed some light on the subject.

I've been a contributor to the Yesterday's tractors forums for about 13 years.

Was not my intention to "step on your toes ...", Zane, ... "implying you don't know what your doing". Was simply trying to be helpful by pointing it out.
