 Ford 1320 PTO Engagement Lever Problem


I have a ford 1320 (sorry I don't know the year) that I am currently borrowing from a friend that is having some problems with the pto engagement lever. The lever is extremely hard to move when you wish to engage or disengage the pto. I know from previous usage that the lever was always a bit stiff, but now it's to the point where you really have to lean on it for engagement, and once it's actualy "popped out" of engagement during use. I know this particular tractor hasn't been serviced real well but it only has about 450 hrs on it so it hasn't seen a whole lot of use. Is there something that might need lubricating? I actually purchased the FO-46 Ford shop manual but I can't seem to find anything that deals real clearly with the engagement linkage.

Thanks for your help.

 Ford 1320 PTO Engagement Lever Problem

About the only thing I'd try on a borrowed tractor that may do some good is adjust the clutch linkage. It depends a bit on the particular TX, but for gears and a live pto with a 2-stage clutch, about 3/4" free travel is about right. The pto clutch won't fully disengage if there's excessive free travel in the linkage and that will make them hard to engage. However, the usual result is that it grinds rather than is simply hard to engage. If the PTO isn't live, I'd try to engage it in 2wd rather than 4wd--slim chance that would be the explanation but it's easy enough to try.

If it's a gear TX, fixing almost anything else would require at least the TX top cover to be removed and even then very little is accessible.

It'd probably a good idea to confer with your friend. In general trying to operate muscle things to get them to work eventually turns a problem into a breakdown. It might create some stresses here and there figuring out what to do if it breaks down while you have the tractor.

Tom:

Thanks for the info. I've talked to my friend so he knows what's going on. I'll check the clutch adjustment and then go from there.

Thanks again!
