Question for Mechanics

Looking for thoughts on the cause of this issue. International farm tractor, 50 or so years old. When you start it, the PTO turns immediately without engaging it. PTO runs constantly until shutoff. I don't want to spend big bucks trying to figure it out, what could be the main cause?

Probably the nuptual valve or the Finnegan pins.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Re: Question for Mechanics

I hate to hijack a thread...but this is the Universal forum:

I once knew a man named Michael Finnegan,

He had whiskers on his chinnegan,

Wind blew them off, but they grew innegan,

Poor old Michael Finne- ginne- ginnegan.

Re: Question for Mechanics

I have a good sense of humor, but the question is serious.
Perhaps a good old farmer on here has run into the same problem?

Re: Question for Mechanics

Thanks ATR, but that's a pay for your question site.
Just need someone who has run Farmalls to jump in.

Re: Question for Mechanics

i'm gonna guess there is a pto brake on it somewhere that has worn out. or the pto switch is worn out

if you bought it, a trucker brought it

Re: Question for Mechanics

I had a Farmall MTA that would do that Joe...however it would not run any implement and you could stop the pto shaft by grabbing it with gloved hand... Just be sure the pto lever handle is not engaged!!


I just lived with it.... Didn't seem to hurt anything. Being the great mechanic that I am
