Unhook the tiller and with pto in gear and engine OFF, see if you can turn the pto shaft. If you can, the clutch on the engine has failed. Which will stop pto and drive. I assume this is standard geared transmission and not hydrostat. If clutch is out, the only repair will be to split tractor and replace the clutch!

Could it be the independent forward/reverse shift?

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 8 years ago
That would not affect the pto operation. Pto runs direct from engine flywheel to the pto output. It goes through no other gears of the transmission. To affect both pto and drive, clutch failure is likely. Have you done the pto shaft test?
