SOURCE: husqvarna 2448 pto switch kills engine,bldes

try unplugging the pto, start the mower, then engage the pto switch. If the fuse still blows trouble is somewhere in the mowers wiring if not the ploblem lies in the pto. hope this helps

SOURCE: JD 6400 tractor, PTO light flashes when engaged

The most likely problem is the pto solenoid valve on the rear of the tractor.It could be the speed sensor but you won't know until you get the codes read by the dealer.I have had to replace the b.c.u. for this problem but it is not common.

SOURCE: when I engage the pto clutch, it does not

If your talking about the mower blades, it can be a weak battery.

My 04 f250 needs a steering pump how do I install

It is almost impossible to explain this without knowing engine size".Does it have A/C...also is it a gas or Diesel engine..?..most gas engines have about the same pump however the surrounding components are in slightly different locations..This is very hard and difficult to perform without correct tools..So I am going to assume you have it all and are prepared...Remember I don't know engine size..Although there isn't a huge difference unless it is diesel..and if you are mechanically inclined at all with tools you can do it...If not don't even try it !!!!.....First you will need to inspect everything..Use a good light.put truck in park,set park brake,use safety blocks at wheels,wear safety glasses..If pump and hoses are dirty clean all with brake clean to see everything..check serpentine belt for damage/wear/cracks..check pump hose's for cracks/leaks..If all looks good you are ok..If not buy a belt and or pump hose' at least 3qts.of new fluid..while getting pump..If it looks good and has never been changed the pulley will ok...however you will have to rent a pulley removal/installation kit from auto-zone..(Pumps don't come with pulleys)...also some have reservoirs mounted to them...I assume yours don't..?...Call for parts before leaving to save time...they will want old part for a core after completion ..,It will save you money...Get new part..,make sure it comes with new seals/o-rings..3 fluid..1brake clean..pulley removal/installation kit.line removal tool if needed.rubber gloves,drain pan,oil dry.(. Don't even attempt this in the yard Contamination Kills !!!! ).. Put truck in park,set park brake chock rear wheels,get safety glasses,gloves..LET TRUCK ENGINE COOL..Remove air cleaner,if in the way..draw a picture of belt routing if no diagram sticker is present.Remove belt.raise truck and put on jack stands at each front tire..leave enough room to turn wheels..remove hose's from pump,let it drain in pan completely.If you don't have a vise read instructions and remove pump pulley with removal kit.while on engine.take photo or mark how close pulley is to pump before removal.If you have vise remove 3 bolts after draining and remove pump/remove pulley while in vise.clean and inspect both hose ends,install new seals/o-rings.Inspect new pump for shipping damage.If vise was used install pulley to same location as removed.install pump..torque bolts to 20.lbs.install pump hose's with new seals.double-check/inspect ..Install belt and all that was removed.add 11/2 qts fluid..start truck and slowly turn wheels left to tight 4 times to self bleed system.add fluid while running if it don't steer smoothly..stop engine check and add to fluid..check for leaks and all components removed ...lower truck,test drive and double-check everything.......Hope this helps.....Brooks/Metalpoet...

Front seal leaking in gear box

If it is the front seal in the gear box then the box has to come out. The seal is in the extension housing that the clutch throw out bearing runs on and the seal can be replaced by removing that housing . However mostly if that seal leaks then the front bearing on the clutch shaft may be failing allowing the shaft to move and that is why the seal leaks. If the front of the box is dry then the oil leak may be the rear main seal of the engine so it is best to check both arrears as the oil leaks from the same point in the bell housing

I have an oil leak from the engine. what could the problem be

Check the sump gasket at the rear of the sump tension sump bolts. Check that the rocker cover gasket is not leaking down the back of the engine and giving the appearance of a sump leak. Rear crank seal would be another point of leak and front input shaft (clutch shaft) seal leaking. Check the engine oil level and correct if necessary and check gear box oil level and correct if necessary. If you have an auto the oil will be pinkish and indicates a torque converter to gear box seal leaking.. Either of the shaft seals will require the box removal for repair.

Skoda gear selector assembly manual gearbox 1998 felicia please show design and possible solution to oil leak from gear box end

Normally there is a seal of sorts here (it may be a felt seal or a rubber flap) but I find that if there is a problem here I check firstly the oil level in the gear box and the viscosity of the oil in the box Remove the filler plug (plug in the side of the box ) and drain until oil is level with the bottom of the threads. Best replace oil with a known viscosity oil for you gear box.

93 crown vic steering gear leaking

The bubbling is just the air being removed by fluid, no problem. the foaming is just the pump action, no problem. As for the leakage, remove the pitman arm and replace the seal on shaft the pitman arm is bolted to. If you still have leakage, replace the seal in the top of the box where the column bolts to the box for it's just running down the box and looking like the leak is from the bottom seal.

Leak oil from underneith where the shaft comes out of the engine

If you look at the bottom of the engine, if you see oil on the large shaft coming out of the engine where the blade is attached, the PTO or crankshaft seal is leaking. It can be replace without taking the engine apart, but you'll need to remove the blade and adapter from the crankshaft, which can be difficult without the proper tools. You'll also have to remove the old seal, with a seal puller, or by using a couple self-tapping sheet metal screws into the outer metal part of the seal. You then would pry on the screw heads to remove the seal. Replace with a new one after cleaning out the bottom of the crankcase. Clean the PTO so that the new seal is not damaged as it is slid into place. You can use a length of plastic pipe to drive the new seal into place. Replace adapter and blade. Check oil level before use.
Oh, be sure it is not the drain plug, as it may have been left a bit loose if the oil was recently changed.
