pto box sounds rough

Recommended Posts

Just picked up a 7016 and the pto grinds a bit when engaged. It works fine once it is engaged. Anybody had this problem? I assume I will have to replace it before I sell it. Its got a non smoking briggs in her that runs well. Any help is appreciated.

I have a 3416H with the same setup. I just replaced the entire center PTO, and it makes the same nastty sound as the original for just a split second. Been with this tractor since new in 75. It has always engaged best at about 30% throttle and not moving the lever slow, easing it in has always made the sound worse. Disengaging never makes noise. You want to watch PTO pulley as it's engaged, if there is any visible wobble you have a problem.
