Customer Question

bx 1860 pto clutch lever is froze up

If you have engine running, can you move either of the pto levers? Lever goes direct to the shaft inside the transmission. When was pto last used? Check the linkage for any object that could have gotten into the lever , it is shaped so it could catch anything dropped from above. I have seen chains jammed in the lever, keeping it from moving If lever is ok, go direct to the internal shaft and check it. HAs pto had any problems before?

pto was not used since late last fall. nothing is caught. the other lever moves freely, the clutch lever is froze to the point that the lever bends trying to engage.

are we still connected?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.
The inner gears in the transmission for the pto have to be in the right position, or one blocks the other.

how do i check that?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.
You have the front pto option? Be sure the pto shifter is in neutral, engine off.. will engagement lever move? The try putting it in front pto and try again to engage, then try it in rear pto, .If nothing, go to the lever , transmission end, and see if you can turn the shaft that goes into the transmission. if not, problem is more serious and things will have to be taken apart. The top three point can be removed to see if you can see any internal damage, The way Kubota makes the transmission, the transmission has to be removed from the tractor and the cases separated to get to the internal gears and shift forks!
