I have a 212 manual pto that is giving me fits. It always seemed under powered snow blowing and mowing and would get bogged down in longer grass unless I had the deck all the way up. The other day the grass was 3in high and it quit mowing all together. The pto wouldn’t turn/engage. I parked it, went to show my dad what was going on and now the tractor won’t start.
Is the governor functioning? Does yours have the split bracket PTO or the single piece bracket?
Since this is a mechanical PTO, it uses belts and tension (springs) to engages the attachments. So I think you should start with the engine and see if the governor is functioning. If it is beyound you knowledge or skill level. I would highly recommend taking it to a shop either JD or someone who services all brands and types.
