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.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
