Every time that has occurred, something was found that made me replace the clutch on them. Witehr the plate had broken and a piece was stuck to the flywheel, springs broken on the pressure plate, pull plate had broken spring and it would pull out. I had a custoemr drive into a dirt bank once to try and get the clutch to disengage and found then the plate was split in half from the heat build up from the clutch slipping so much due to the PTO engagement needs. If you use yours a lot then the clutch just might be due for replacement.

The only way to know for sure is to split it and see. I will warn, have several buckets ready for the hydraulic fluid because there is a lot of it when you have to split that line under that runs from the front to the back. You will need to move it out of the way to split the trans away so you can get to the clutch. Visually looking at it is the only real way to see what is going on.
