green horn476 said: (quoted from post at 17:26:27 10/06/13) I have a feeling I am not engaging properly as you stated. If motor needs to be running when engaging PTO that is most

likely my problem. I know that the PTO handle didn't seem to want to move freely, but the motor wasn't running at that point?

Yes have motor running (idle or just enough throttle to gently spin your implement without killing tractor). Push foot clutch in. Fully engage PTO lever. Slowly release foot clutch. (makes no difference if you have tranny in Nuetral or a forward gear or reverse gear). Throttle up to desired implement speed from here.
Important Note: Your tractor does not have live or independent PTO. In other words every time you push foot clutch in to stop so will the PTO as the same engine shaft that drives your tranny drives your PTO - or in other words the tranny and the PTO are tied together. In many cases implements (like a bushog or a baler) can cause a flywheeling effect and continue pushing you forward into a fence, building, tree, ditch, etc. through the PTO backfeeding the tranny when you try to stop by pushing the clutch in. Even though you have the clutch pushed in the spinning PTO will continue pushing you in whatever direction you were previously traveling in a very herky jerky fashion until that stored up energy remaining in the spinning implement is extinguished. A $50 to $60 PTO external overrunning clutch is a very wise purchase to make and will prevent the PTO backfeeding the tranny and greatly enhance your safety. These are available from TSC, local dealer, even the internet. With one of these overrunning clutches, you can stop immediately and you will simply hear a ratchet clicking sound of the one way overrunning clutch doing its job for you. (remember to keep the external overrun clutch greased).
