The rear PTO on my GT20 spins freely and does not engage. The front and center work as they should. I am relatively new to this tractor thing so any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Maybe a wiring issue? Or is this not electric?

Have you read the manuals? If you need copies, just download them from our Manuals Section. Good Luck, Rick

I would try the easy trouble shooting first. Check voltage at the switch then the clutch.

You need power to the field, in order to engage the rear pto. If the one wire isn't "hot" with the switch on and the tractor running, switch or field could be cooked. If someone had this apart and air gap exceeds .045" between clutch and rotating field, might not be locking up under power. 

 

If 12v is getting to coil, check resistance on coil. 

Could be a severed wire or something else trivial. 

The wiring on these things is crazy, with the interlock scheme. I've seen so many "shoemaker" jobs with bypass wiring, cause more problems than what was intended to fix. I came up with a logic to wire everything clean and simple, starting from scratch, making things a breeze to diagnose. Hopefully, yours is semi-intact.
