Always engage the PTO at tick-over and definately disengage it at tickover, Or if you have some machine that still has momentum in the shaft and no over-run clutch then stop the engine before disengaging. This might not seem conventional to do this ...but your brake will last a lot longer. The reason... once you disengage, the oil is diverted from the clutch plates to the brake, immediately. so the brake has a job to stop the revolving hub. So the slower you can get that hub before disengaging the longer your brake lasts........Your call! Sam

Hi Sam, only new of one MF165 with independant PTO in my part of the UK. Most of the MF users bought the 168 if the wanted IPTO. Nice pictures of the fleet of Frenchs wagons, usually have a natter to them at the Newark tractor show. This next year at Newark we are featuring Massey Harris and Ferguson and it would be good to get some of the 12 Ferguson 40 tractors you mentioned. Michael Hart. E mail address is

We had a 168 which was a very good tractor as such but I hated that I.P.T.O. No matter how careful you were it always engaged 'suddenly'. Not good news if you had a loaded muckspreader on the back or that god awful 3 foot P.T.O. shaft with the wide angle coupling that was on our Howard Bigbaler Mk.1
