Yanmar 1610 PTO

Postby rpstagg » Mon Jan 29, 2018 11:38 am

I have difficulty shifting the PTO into range 2. I can make it work , but it takes some fiddling. Is there some way to adjust external to the gear case to mitigate this problem? No difficulty whatsoever in shifting into range 1, but I never use that.

Range 1 is where you should be running all 540rpm implements. There is an external linkage that you could check to see if it is binding. Just wiggle the lever and follow it back. Otherwise the problem will probably be internal. Keep in mind that it is not uncommon to need to turn the gears slightly to get them to mesh. You can do this by slowly letting out the clutch with a slight pressure on the shift lever.
