pto suddenly quit. while checking control cable @ transmission, found bolt with long stem that locates valve had backed out. I went thru threaded hole with small screwdriver & lined up hole, installed bolt, but still won't engage. I guess valve & linkage got unhooked. question: can I remove pump on other side & get to it, or plan on splitting this cab tractor? thanks

C.K.,After pondering on this awhile i seem to remember ecountering this problem several years ago.But i still believe that i ended up splitting the tractor to repair the problem.Your linkage connects to a fork type lever that controls the valve spool for the PTO brake.When the pin worked its way out the spool fell out of this fork and let it activate the brake band and stopping the PTO.It also can cause the line to break and the PTO componets to become misaligned.As Bern said I would go ahead and split the tractor and do it right.Even if it has a cab you can still do it without pulling it completely off.You need to look everthing over good while your in there.Now is the time to inspect the clutchpack and rebuild if its worn very much.Good luck with your repair.

You could line up the parts by removing the 3-point lift cover, but since there's a chance you have other damage anyway, I'd split the thing and do it right.

C.K.,You will need to split the tractor to repair the problem.It probaly broke the oil supply tube.You don't have enough clearance through the pump access.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
