To use the pto effectively, the clutch rod clevis pin needs to be put in the second hole. This will raise the pedal upward about 1.5 inches or so. This will allow the pto to be "live". Live is being able to stop forward motion of tractor without losing power to pto...very nice feature. When you now press the clutch you will feel a hard spot but pedal is not on floor, press to floor and see if pto lever engages without grinding, if still grinding a clutch replacement/repair is in your future. This is important when using high energy attachments such as a bush hog, I think you are calling a topper. Dirt/grime is unsightly but not necessarily a hot item. Oil accumulating on a hot engine is a hot item(no pun). Check coolant level and check/test/change thermostat to see if high eng temp can be cured. Don't run it with temp in red zone. Post back your results.

I've taken a load of pictures and put them on Flickr.
I have uploaded a few here, I found the clevis pin and it is currently on the end hole so I plan to move it back when i have a bit of time at the weekend.
The temp gauge seems to be stuck in the red (tractor has been cold for a few days now!)
I took some pictures of the area where the oil seems to be leaking from collecting on the bottom of the engine block, not sure if they are particularly easy to interpet photos as they are all a bit close-up. let me know how bad you think it is if you get a chance to look. Thanks.

Thanks dbnga, I'll check on the tractor when I get home, I'll try and upload some pictures too. The Topper is a rotary grass mower, I've never heard of a bush hog!
