hot pto

Recommended Posts

wibm
The pto on my 3416H runs very hot when it is disengaged. When engaged the clutch and cone are just warm. I have gone through the manual and not found any reference to lubricating anything. I don't understand how a shaft can pass throuth the clutch and not create friction. As it is now, whenever I want to use the tractor for other purposes, I just take the belt off and engage the clutch. Any thoughts and input would be appriciated. Thanks, Wibm

My guess is either one of two things. Either the bearing inside the pulley is bad, or you don't have the travel set right. There is supposed to be 1/8" to 3/16" of travel of the pulley in and out from the cap when disengaging. Personally I'd bet the bearing is bad though. See if the pulley will wiggle alot side to side when disengaged.

The travel of the pulley was my first thought, so I adjusted accordingly as you mentioned. I can't detect any wobble in the pulley. Altho I have not dismanteled it yet, my drawing shows a bushing assembly, while later models show a bearing assembly. Am wondering if the bearing would work on my pto?

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
