  • PTO doesn't rotate
  • A few months ago my hydraulics quit on my 52 8N. It seems the PTO shaft is not rotating in neutral or in any gear. I replaced the shaft assembly thinking it my be the problem, but the new assembly doesn't rotate either. Turning the PTO by hand, however, does lift hydraulics. The tractor runs fine otherwise with no strange noises or grinding sounds.

    Any ideas what might be causing the PTO to not rotate?

  • Thanks to all who gave me the confidence to peek behind the PTO lever and introduce some gentle persuasion to the situation. That fixed it and all is well!

  • The PTO lever should move easily to engage the PTO.

  • The PTO lever is at the 1 o’clock position and won’t budge an inch either direction. Shouldn’t it move easily back and forth?
