Explain? The pto won't work, or the tractor will not drive? If the pto does not work, check the pto linkage from lever to the transmission. May need to be adjusted. And check the pto switch, it may be loose, and the backing up, lets it swing. With manual pto which tractor has, seems to be related to the pto clutch and linkage.
