3230 PTO rebuild

Recommended Posts

How hard is it to rebuild a PTO in a 3230? 

Yesterday we filled our silo. We were going to use the 786 and 3230 to haul silage wagons. Brother started running a load up the silo and with the load on it the PTO started slipping so bad he couldn't unload with it. Ended up pulling it to the side and ran a relay system. 786 went to the field with the wagons and switched, Pulled them up the muddy mess of our lane. Dropped the wagon in the yard where the 460 pulled them up to the blower and unloaded them. All our other tractors were either on the blower or had too long of axles to work in this application.

The PTO isn't set up like any of our other tractors so I'm wondering what type of a chore it is to tear one out and repair and reinstall it.

Pretty simple setup, first of on the back side of MCV you will see a short line going to a TEE fitting put a gauge on bottom side of TEE and check your pressure. Then remove line and gauge it right off the MCV, compare your readings. 

To remove PTO clutch drain oil and remove plate or MFD drop box on bottom of rear housing. The PTO clutch has a roll pin that needs to be driven out, then remove 3 cornered cap around lower PTO shaft on back of tractor. Pulling the shaft back will drop PTO clutch out.
