Customer Question

Just recently, my TS135A has started giving no, or false, reading on the PTO rpm. Many times it will read 0, yesterday, it was reading false readings like 67, 206, 178 rpm while I was shredding. A few times, it gave me correct reading in the 700's (I had it in the 1000 RPM). It does this with both 540 and 1000.

I first would check the PTO speed sensor and wiring at the bottom of the PTO housing.

It is held in by 2 5 mm bolts,

remove the wiring connector and see if there is any water or dirt in the plugs.

the part number of a new sensor depends on the serial number.

Below s/b ACP263949 part number is(###) ###-####/p>

above s/n ACP263949 part number is *****

Not yet. With the holiday weekend, I've been caught short on time. I did check the connector and did not see any thing wrong there. Is there a way to do a static test on the sensor--such as conductivity or disconnecting and checking for pulses, without having to pull the sensor? Also, I was told that I have to drain the transmission fluid to pull the sensor---Is this true?

you could OHM test and see if it is open. but I am thinking it is worn on the end.

If you are quick and ready, you can change with out draining the oil.
