I recently purchased a 140 H1 and the rear PTO /fan only turns occationally with a loud squeeling noise. Is this fan not always supposed to turn?

If you have a 140 with a ser. no greater than 30000 it should have a fan that is attached to the shaft with a 1/4" roll pin. It is unlikely to break. The problem could be on the other end of the shaft where it is coupled to the driveshaft. The hydro may not be turning due to a damaged coupling or input shaft. This is not good news. You need to check it right away.

Agree with JDBrian. Removing the fender pan will give you a sure fire way to find why it isn't spinning. Is the tractor still able to move when the fan stops?

Thanks Guys. I took off the fender pan and found everything to look normal and turn freely. It appears the pump that drives the shaft has issues. Other than this the tractor operates normally. Was hoping for a simple fix.

Ive been looking at the service manual i downloaded. Thanks Guys. It appars to me that the input shaft must be broken inside the housing as looks to be a single shaft. Anyone had one of these apart?
