I have a 1982 John...

I have a 1982 John Deere 2240. Maintenance on the tractor has not been good thru the years. The other day while mowing a bermuda rye mix on level ground, the PTO shut down and would not re-engage. I notice then that the power steering and power lift were not functioning either. Engine still runs fine and the the transmission and brakes are fine as well. What are the possible causes of the the problem.

Curtis B. :

Check the hydraulic pump drive off the front crankshaft pulley to the hydraulic pump. It can break and pump will not turn.

The shop wanted to break it in half at the transmission engine connection to diagnose. That seemed excessive. Is the hydraulic pump fairly easy to get too?

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 8 years ago
Yes, pump drives off the front of the engine!
