SOURCE: ford 8n tractor.when i put a load on the pto , it pops off

Your PTO shift houseing is going out. I just repairs the same problem. You have to seperate the cases just in front of your lever to engage your PTO. The shirt fork is bent. Go to for parts and they also have a number on there sit for technical advise.

SOURCE: engine cutting off after engaging the pto (mower deck) JD 317

its likely to be a switch playing you up try hard wireing the switch to see if it stops this cutting out first, do one switch at a time till you fine the one playing up

SOURCE: problem with John Deere L120 tractor

Park brake switch is the most likely culprit,any other would cause the tractor to not turn over in the crank position.

First of all I beleive if you Make Sure you Don't Hahave the Clutches Backwards,Its Easy to do this.To line them Up your going to need a Helper,Trying this by your self will were you out.

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 .

Sir I hope i've Helped you.

Can I get a picture of a 46" deck layout for a black mtd yard machine so I can c how the deck engagement cable go

Only seen one or two H decks here.
if it is this cable
then it connects to the RH brake assembly and the PTO engagement plate. There is also a spring that connects at the same point on the engagement plate to the right hand frame.

My pto engages on the highest level for my deck on my mtd lawn tractor. Highest my deck will go is 5. But when I put it to 4 ir even 3 the pto cuts out. But as soon as you return it to 5 it starts

Owner's manual? no manual, try for both owner and Repair manual on
Wild guess, the angle of the PTO drive shaft related to the height of the deck is causing a problem. Perhaps it's binding and won't turn, or pops out because of the binding and load. Perhaps the drive shaft is not "locked" on for some reason, with pins or
another device. Perhaps the sliding portion needs lubrication.

Taking lawn mower off john deere 455 tractor

Undo the lever in the front by pulling it out and then rolling it downward to release the front of the deck [lower it to the ground before you start].Once that bracket is off you need to remove the drive shaft by pulling back on the lock collar on the shaft and then pull off the pto shaft.Now pick up the rear of the deck slightly and pull out the c hangers in the rearof the deck just ahead of the back wheels.Jack up the left rear end to make it easier to pull the deck out from under the tractor.

Check fuses.Does the dash light for PTO come on?Right side screen by pedals sometimes comes in contact with wires and cuts them.This happens mainly on the older units.

John Deere 445 pto will not start Smoke from

If smoke is coming from solenoid on rear top side of trans then internal windings are bad but usually it will blow the fuse.Remove plastic nut from solenoid,slide solenoid off shaft then engage PTO.If solenoid does not smoke slide screwdriver or something like it into solenoid and see if there is any Magnetic force.If smoke comes from deck check idlers and spindles for movement.Be sure to ckeck gearcase oil level on the deck.
