JD 2030 PTO won't engage

I recently bought a 2030, but now when I go to engage the PTO lever it just grinds and won't engage. No matter if the clutch is in or out or what gear I'm in. The only way I can get it to engage is to move it to ON with the tractor shut off and then crank it with the PTO on. It will shut off with the tractor running , but will never engage. What could be the problem?
Also, I need a lesson on the difference between continuous and independent running PTO. I assume mine is independent, but I really don't know the difference.

Thanks in advance, Bryan

if you have a reverser, you should disengage the engine disconnect clutch. this is done by extra clutch pedal movement (after reverser clutch is disengaged.there should be a definite rise in pedal effort for this operation.
without reverser you have a dual stage clutch. here too, after you disengage the transmission clutch you shuld have some extea pedal stroke with increased pedal effort in order to disengage the pto clutch.
if you dont 'feel' the extra pedal effort you should make sure that the pto clutch is not 'eliminated'(by adjusting the plate with elongated hole at the base of the clutch pedal). if it's not 'eliminated', a careful adjustment is the next step.
at any case, you have a continuous running pto. inependant pto is independant of clutch operation (in 2030 its hydraulically operated with a lever between shift levers.
