I am having problems with my JD 212 electric pto
I got 3 garden tractors from Craigslist and all 3 have the electic pto - 112, 210 and 212
I checked the ohms on it and it checked good ( I think) on the 212
I been working on getting it cleaned up and checking it all over
got the 212 started today and it sound and runs great
the motor was rebuilt by the PO years ago, but just sat
he said he had problems with the drive
I replaced the varitor - the old one was bad
while I was running the motor, I tried turning on the pto and the motor started dying
tried it several times and it wants to die when I try turning on the pto
I noticed that the pto was turning
the pto switch was off
got a long stick to see if I could stop the pto - it did
what is going on?
what do think I should do?
I can bench test it - it make sure it is good.
man I like like the old manual ptos - easy to work on
