AC 185 Power Director issue

Hi all,

I"ve got a 185 with hydraulic PTO that the Power Director clutch doesn"t seem to disengage fully when placed in neutral. Its still shiftable, but its quite hard on the gears and takes quite a bit of effort to shift. I was thinking that the relief valve for the PD control needs a shim added. I don"t have the tools to test line pressure or i would do so. I have already checked to see if the shift detents line up properly, and they do.

Thanks in advance for the help!

my concern with that is constantly disengaging/ reengaging the PTO when a disk mower or baler is hooked up to it will put unnecessary wear on the implement.

Absolutely do not shift the transmission using the PD. I never had an issue with implement damage unless I was using a 2 lunger JD and that happens no mater what way you shift or do with the PTO.

Really, your foot clutch is to be used for changing gears, not the PD, most PD"s even when warm still have a little drag on the clutches. I would use your foot clutch, unless you like buying shifting forks............?
