I hooked up my bushhog to my B today and I noticed a problem. I could not put my tractor in gear while the pto was engaged to the tractor. If I had the tractor ingear before I engaged the pto i could drive it but not the other way around. the mower is not bound up and I can turn it manually without any problems. any suggestions.

Many operators feel it is MORE important to be able to FORCE the bush hog to STOP--in an EMERGENCY--like if a kid get's too close.... Pushing in on the clutch, AND the Brakes will Stop the danged thing..!!! I hate that "Helpless Feeling" of sitting, waiting for it to eventually stop.... If your brakes are any good, you can stop it in 2 or 3 feet.... FWIW.....

If you hear grinding when you try to put in it gear, that would be due to the bush hog back driving gears in the transmission. The bushhog rotor acts like a big flywheel although you have put in the clutch, it takes a long time to coast to a stop. Meanwhile it is turning gears in the transmission that you are trying to shift. This flywheel effect will also drive the whole tractor forward if it is gear, making it impossible to stop quickly. The brakes have to not only stop the tractor but the bushhog rotor as well.
The solution is called an overrunning clutch. It is a PTO accessory available in most farm stores that goes between the tractor PTO and the mower. It allows the mower to freewheel without driving the tractor PTO shaft and gears in the transmission.
Be careful to check the size of the PTO shaft spline and your bushhog compared to the shaft size of the overrunning clutch. Most tractors have larger size shafts than the B. You may already have a size adapter on the B to fit your bushhog.

Yes, I think $70 is a fair price. Please do this. It is not safe without it.

Today's Featured Article - Earthmaster Project Progress Just a little update on my Earthmaster......it's back from the dead! I pulled the head, and soaked the stuck valves with mystery oil overnight, re-installed the head, and bingo, the compression returned. But alas, my carb foiled me again, it would fire a second then flood out. After numerous dead ends for a replacement carb, I went to work fixing mine.I soldered new floats on the float arm, they came from an old motorcycle carb, replaced the packing on the throttle shaft with o-rings, cut new ga ...
