Welcome to GTtalk.  I moved your thread to the Bolens forum where I think you will get an answer to your question.  Some of the Bolen's guys should be along before long.

Is there a clutch on the pto? Discs or belts or ??  Sounds like you need adjustment?

Welcome to GTTalk. The Iseki's are gear driven off of the transmission to the PTO. Here is a video of a guy with a G154. Good luck.

. Hi it stays at a high rpm

 

When you engage the front/mid pto lever, when can you start to feel the resistance? Mine starts almost immediately, probably in the first inch or so. It is fully engaged by the time the lever is just past halfway.

 

If yours is not engaging similarly, try adjusting the cable tension using the sleeve nut on the cable in front of the pto engagement lever. If that doesn't work, or if that doesn't seem to be the issue, then break out the 17mm, 10mm, and that big hex socket (can't remember the size of that one) and pull the front apart.

 

 

I think there are 3 belts inside the housing, sounds like an adjustment issue.

 

That's correct, triple belted from a pulley off the crank to the front/mid pto shafts.

Welcome here. I can't remember who but someone here just spent months completely rebuilding their Iseki Bolens from the ground up and will be able to help you with some insight. Good luck.

Member Fxrs55 is who you're thinking of. His does not have the front pto kit.
