Good Morning All-
I'm new to the forum so here it goes...We have a 1967 John Deere 2510 syncro range that we recently installed a rebuilt dual stage clutch in. The transmission clutch works fine but the PTO clutch won't go over-center into the engaged position without a considerable amount of force. When it is engaged it works though. It makes a loud popping noise when disengaging like there is something sticking in the clutch pack. We have looked at the linkage from the PTO lever down to the shift fork and nothing is binding up. The implement dealership that rebuilt the clutch had originally put the PTO disk in backwards. We didn't notice this until we had installed the rebuilt clutch and the PTO wouldn't work. After many frustrating hours of head scratching we were stumped. Luckily one of our old timer neighbors who spent much of his youth mechanic-ing on this vintage of tractors noticed the source of the problems. We returned it to the dealer who flipped the disk to its correct position. We re-installed the clutch and are now in our current predicament. Unfortunately the service manual states there is no way to adjust the PTO fingers or any of the linkage between the engagement lever and the shift fork on this model. We don't want to throw in the towel but are running out of ideas. Anybody have any words of wisdom? Any help is greatly appreciated! In We used the correct alignment tool.
