What is the brand and model of the tractor. Most of the time when a tractor pops out of gear it is due to weak springs or a worn detent plunger on the shifter. You may have to pull the top transmission cover to inspect but I would probably have a new spring and detent ready to go in. How old is the tractor?

OPERATOR PRESENCE SYSTEM
Be sure operator presence and interlock
systems are working properly, If your
tractor does not function as described,
repair the problem immediately.
• The engine should not start unless the
clutch/brake pedal is fully depressed
and attachement clutch control is in the
disengaged position.
• When the engine is running, any
attempt by the operator to leave the
seat without first setting the parking
brake should shut off the engine.
• When the engine is running and the
attachment clutch is engaged, any
attempt by the operator to leave the
seat should shut off the engine.
• The attachment clutch should never
operate unless the operator is in the
seat.

Check your seat switch and clutch switch wires be sure that the connection to each switch is making contact and the mechanism that activates the switch is actually activateing them in other words be sure the clutch is pushing the switch in and your seat switch is occupied and be sure all grounding wires a intack
especially from your battery negative to the frame.You also could have a neutral safety switch which requires your transmission to be in neural.
try these things and let us know how we can further help from more of your input.

SOURCE: Craftsman 26hp Garden Tractor PTO not working

If you changed the belt make sure it did not interfere with the wire that runs from the pto clutch, sometimes that belt can rub on the wire and wear through it,also if you had the clutch off make sure you aligned the steel retainer bolt that sets in the alignment hole on the pto clutch,this keeps the clutch from spring when disengaged if you don't get that pin through the hole in clutch it can push on the clutch and bind it.Also it may be possible to plug that pto switch in backwards.Also if you jumped the fuse out it may now have burnt the switch or wiring somewhere.

SOURCE: DTY 4000 tractor dies when engaging pto, new

Hi,
This is just a suggestion. Try pulling the choke out about one third to one half and then engage the PTO. Sometimes the air idle adjust screw port gets a tiny speck of debris in it. If with the choke partially out and the PTO engages the just grab a screwdriver and turn the air idle mixture screw counter clockwise a hair.

Check to make sure The Splines are the Same as the Old Clutches.Includind the amount of Teeth in Each Clutch Have Got to be the Same.

Second make sure you have Plenty of Slack in your Clutch Adjustments.Remember you just removed a Work set of Clutches.So you'll need to Back off The Clutch Adjustments.

To give you plenty of Slack.You might also want to See if your Dealer Has a Pilot Tool or Clutch Alingment Tool to Help you .

I suspect that the alternator/generator has gone bad, preventing the battery from chargine, or generating enough voltage to keep the electric pto on your mower engaged.

I think that it is located on the engine beneath the flywheel.

I hope this helps you.

I have an old 4020 and the PTO will not stop when the PTO handle is in the off position. Can you tell me what is likely wrong and is it a major fix?


Hi,
The internal brake has gone bad... and yes it is a major fix, because the tractor will have to be split to get to it...
You probably can stop it with a gloved hand by grabbing a hold of it...then you can quickly get a PTO shaft against it and get it hooked up...any drag from a machine should be enough to keep it stopped...
If it is pulling harder then that then you have even bigger problems, as the throwout is bad inside and the PTO is constantly engaged...

You should repair that PTO system before it gets worse.
Get a repair manual and fix it.
I can't explain the repair here.
Keep in mind.......everything on your tractor is easy to fix.
