Iím looking at a friends 384 that the PTO lever does not work. It moves freely like itís not connected but I can feel the shaft turning while moving lever when tractor is running. Iíve looked at a service book which tells me there is an arm on the end of the shaft that engages PTO. Do I need to pull the transmission cover or do I remove the lever/shaft thru the side of transmission? I see three bolts hold a small cover with the shaft.

Hi, probably sheared the roll pin off the end of the engagement lever, item #4 in the photo below.
The PTO lever can be removed as others have said and replace the roll pin in item #4, then it will take some maneuvering of the lever when re-installing to get the roll pin back into the groove in the collar in item #5. It is a very simple engagement mechanism where the collar is pushed by the PTO lever to connect the PTO front shaft to the PTO rear shaft.
This problem usually happens when the PTO clutch gets out of adjustment or seizes to the flywheel and the Operator tries to force the PTO into gear.

For more complicated PTO problems see the B414 PTO link below.

"I see three bolts hold a small cover with the shaft."

Take 'em out and you can withdraw the mechanism and see what's happened.

There's several things that can break or fail just on the parts you can withdraw from the main case after removing the three bolts.

Post back with what you see.

There are several possible issues, the Diagram might be of some help. Jim
