Ford 8700 PTO won't disengage.
Posted 06 July 2010 - 06:01 AM
But now I can't get it to disengage in either lever position.
Any ideas on how to fix this?

it's a dual power tractor, shifter has 4 fwd gears and 1 rev with high and low.

that's my guess anyway.
i'll soon find out as i'm tearing it down tomorrow.
i'm taking the rear top cover off the axle. i'd guess it weighs 250lbs.

he said once something is hooked up and NOT engaged then it does NOT spinn.
I am just wondering if this is the start of something more to come?

i heard that the guy who bought it had the opposite happen to him with it. the pto disengaged, and wouldn't re-engage.
Im guessing it was somewhere in the valve body that controls the PTO clutch and brake band. The PTO worked good and didn't slip at all, and since it disengaged on it's own with no adverse effects, it leads me to believe it was somewhere in the control portion.
the top of the rear axle has to be removed (hold the hydraulics for the lift arms) and looked to be accesible without removing the cab. you might have to remove a small section of the floorpan, but it's designed to be removed.

a/c heat work good tires, my one real worry is the pto en and disengaging.
with out over paying for the machine and then adding more money into a transport and repair bill.
what do u think machine is worth

If a man has a full day or two to work on it, and has an engine hoist, i'd say he could fix the problem pretty cheap. It will just take time to get it down.

what do you think the possible problem is and what might be broken/worn out, (part(s)?
I tryin to be fair to sellers asking price and myself. You all know how this goes, you pay fair price $$, truck it home $$$ and buy parts $$$ spend three weekends putting together (time and $$$) and now you got more money in it then you can sell it for,
no longer a deal...wow sounds like i have done that once before...
thanks for all info

Hydraulics are working well otherwise.
Can anybody give me some advice or experiences?
By the way, where is the PTO clutch and how do you get to it? I have ordered a service manual but it's not here yet.
