SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: My simplicity Coronet Hydro 13 lawn tractor loses

The fluid in the transmission is a multigrade oil. sometimes you can change the oil by removing the transmission partially or entirely and change the oil to a heavier grade like 15W40 or 20W50, the transmission has a vent mechanism on top that is where the oil would be extracted or drained from and then refilled, the level at full cold is 1" to 1 1/4" below the bottom edge of the inside of the vent pipe or plug boss. some of these had a flat vent plug, some have a hose with the vent in the end attached at a nipple and still some older units had a reservoir like on the larger tractors. The reason your trans is slowing is due to wear in the hydraulic pump face.

Simplicity sunstar 20hp rear pto won't engage deck when you flip the switch, it used to work for a while and I could play with it and it would work but now nothing, any suggestions.

your electric clutch may need adjustment. Take the hood off. Look behind the double pulley that's on the crank shaft. Behind the pulley is an electric clutch. You will need a .010-.015 feeler gage and check between the clutch plates. You will tighten the three screws that mount the clutch to the motor. Try and get as close to .010" as you can. After adjustment start the motor and try and engage the pto. I bet it will work.

Good luck

The blades stop and the 20 amp blowes on My YTH


This Sounds like a Bad PTO.
The Following is a Basic File I Made for Checking the PTO (Blade Engagement). The Most Common Cause for this Problem is the PTO Ground. A Quick Ground Check is to Use Another Wire and Ground the PTO at the Harness Connection Nearest the PTO. Be Careful and Do Not Ground the HOT Wire. Use a Multimeter and Locate the Ground Wire. Clean the PTO Ground and All the Connections for the PTO Wiring Harness. If you have an Ohmmeter, Disconnect the Wiring Harness from the Front of the Clutch and Check the Resistance of the Clutch. You should have around 4 or 5 OHMs. If at or near Zero, the Coil has Shorted.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck
