Ok guys, I could use some help with the center pto on my Agco Allis 918H tractor.
Last fall I was using the tractor mow my yard when the pto drive belt broke. At that time everything worked fine and the tractor mowed good too. So I finally bought a new pto belt but couldn't get the deck to engage very well. It turns out the pto clutch drum was worn out. After a fast trip to the local Simplicity dealer I bought a new one and this is where more of my problems started.
I did my best to try to adjust everything correctly but I don't think I did. Right after everything went back together I had decent clearance between the tire and pto clutch, the clearance was also good with the old one too. So I proceed to make a few short passed with the deck engaged. I made it maybe 150-200 ft overall and the deck belt came off a pulley. After quick fix I was back in business until the belt came off the pto pulley. The deck might have been engaged for a total of 45 seconds at this point. That's when I noticed the pto clutch came into contact with the tire and wore some of the tire down.
Has anyone had a similar issue before or does anyone know the proper procedure to adjust one of these pto setups?
