Hi all, New member here. I bought my first Cub, a 100. I will restore it. Ive got most of the tractor taken apart minus rear end and engine. I have the plow, wheel weights, rear lift and spring assist as well. Its pretty rough but I hope to make it shine again.

I think most everyone gets busy plowing and talking and forgets to take photos.

Don, the button is definitely toast. Without that the PTO should be fully engaged, so if the deck is turning slowly the PTO is likely slipping. You will still want to be sure everything is turning freely with the deck and belts, be sure to check that with the engine off. The PTO will have a triangle shaped "pressure spring" behind the thrust button (the thrust button is what the fiber or brass button presses on) There are three throw out levers that hold the thrust button. behind this is the triangle shaped pressure spring. It's likely that the pressure spring has one or more of the ends broken off. See circled ends in the photo below.

Here's a cutaway view of the PTO that might help explain how it works.

Charlie, you finished breaking in the 1466 after the rebuild by dragging your 2000D around your property? Clever. :-) I assume you were in the 1466, who was in the 2000D?

Here's Don's photos. It appears that the fiber button has broken off of the throw out lever and stuck itself (melted) to the PTO.

Are there private messages here? I tried to upload pics of the PTO button on the arm and the button on the PTO itself and it said the pic is too large. I'm not quite solid on how to reduce size of pics but could use some help. If anyone wants to email or text me, I sure could use some advice. I think I may need to buy a new PTO or at least replace the buttons on the PTO arm and the PTO/clutch. Not sure how to message Kraig or Wayne. Thx

Don-

It may be that your pto simply needs rebuilding or at least some attention. There are several different things to look at like the pressure plates, the condition of the clutch disc, the condition of the release levers controlled by the thrust button, etc. These are things described in manuals but until you deal with them hands on they can be confusing or even intimidating. Just keep in mind these are simple mechanisms and easy to learn so don't fret. The chances are you need to address other aspects of your pto...so get ready.

View from inside the 2000D. Can't say as I've ever broken on in this way, but it seems to have worked out pretty well, LOL
