 TC40D-Shifting PTO

Good morning!

Well I made the purchase of a used '02 TC40 and love it. However I was trying to engage the main pto last night to mow and it would not engage. Is there a trick to this? It feels as if the lever will bend if I force it too much.
I'd appreciate some help here!
Thanks and have a great weekend!
Jeff

Merlot,
Be sure that the lever is not bent. If it is bent this will cause the corners of the lever to slighty wedge against the plastic slot. If this is the cause, take a pair of pliers and slightly straighten the lever. This is the problem I had with my TC40.

Thanks I'll take a look at it. It does appear twisted a bit. Maybe I'll remove the cover and straighten it out

Thanks

Hi, I ended up removing the knobs and cover to closely examine the shift mechanism. The lever was twisted, but the problem was down lower on the main shaft. After a thorough washing...and then after it dried I lightly sprayed some lubri. oil on the shaft and worked it back and forth. Bingo....now you can shift the pto with a single push of a finger!
Thanks
Jeff
