What you need are wiring diagrams, not schematics, and you will have to inquire directly to John Deere.

The power take off starts slipping and cuts off after it runs for a couple hours, what is the solutions to my problem

If you are talking about an electric PTO system, then there are two possible causes. The first is voltage drop. If your alternator is not charging the battery correctly, the available power to operate the PTO Clutch will drop below critical level. If you have to keep putting the battery on charge, this is almost certainly the cause.

The second possibility is mechanical failure of the PTO clutch. One of the most common clutch failures causes them to overheat and when the temperature increases, so does the electrical resistance.

Try this test:
Park the machine on a flat, level surface, switch the engine off,lock the brakes, remove the spark plug lead then remove the cutter belt from the engine pulley.
Now try to turn the PTO pulley on the engine. It should be firm to turn and you may hear/feel a slight grinding (this is normal). Next, turn the ignition switch to the 'run' position (NOT the start position), then turn the PTO switch to the ON position. Reach back under the machine and try to turn the PTO pulley again. This time, it should feel much heavier to turn because it's now connected to the engine shaft. It should turn smoothly for about 3/4 of a turn either way. Most importantly, you should no longer hear/feel any grinding. If you can still feel grinding, it means the PTO clutch has had a mechanical failure. In some cases, the fault can be rectified, however it is not generally recommended as a D.I.Y task.

Cub cadet pto won,t stay engaged

Sounds more like a PTO clutch failure, rather than the switch. The clutch is mounted on the engine shaft, between the hydrostatic drive pulley (nearest the chassis) and the mower deck belt pulley (farther from the chassis).
Since it's an expensive part, make sure the problem isn't in the switch or wiring first. You could do that by probing the wires to the PTO clutch with an automotive test light - they are inexpensive and handy. Clip the ground wire of the test light to the chassis, and probe the hot wire to the clutch (it's the one that doesn't connect to ground) when the engine is running and the PTO switch is engaged. Obviously a helper has to be in the seat, and you should be careful doing this. If the light glows brightly, and the clutch doesn't engage, you definitely have a bad clutch. Good luck! Please rate my answer if helpful, thanks.

Grinding when Engaing PTO for the tiller-Troy Built Horse 8hp

It's likely that your clutch needs adjustment. To adjust, you just need to loosen the two screws on the plate and slide it a bit so the clutch better engages the rear dog clutch. Have you ever taken the tiller portion off the transmission to grease the clutch? If not, before adjusting it you might want to do that. It could be that the clutch isn't sliding back far enough to engage the rear end and a little grease is all it needs. This service requirement is explained in the owners manual for the tiller. One last point, the tiller must be in neutral when engaging the pto clutch. From your note, it sounded like you were engaging the clutch with the forward/reverse lever in the forward position. The lever must be in neutral when engaging the pto clutch.

John deere 2010 tractor. pto grinds and wont engage

The PTO usually has a clutch that has to be engaged so that you can select the PTO rotation setting. I had a problem like that on my tractor and all it needed was a little adjustment on the PTO clutch lever, so it could disengage the PTO gearbox properly.
