AC310 10hp Front PTO Clutch help

Recommended Posts

Since I bought my AC310 the front PTO is always on. I am in the process of working through all the electrical issues, and have noticed that the wire going to the clutch isn't even hooked up! Does anyone out there know how that clutch works, and it why the pully is spinning, and it isn't even plugged in? Nothing in the service manual or parts manual shows any exploded diagram, or how it functions? Thanks,

On my 416, You have to have electricity to engage it, but it does spin a little when I dont have a belt on it. If the battery is weak it will loose magnetic grip and slip. Could yours be rusted tight or out of adjustment a little?

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        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
