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?????
