PTO Always Turning

I am new here, and just bought an 8N Ford Tractor.
I think I have a problem with my PTO. For some reason the PTO shaft is always turning. (engaged or not) Is this normal? I have not hooked it up to the bush hog yet because I am thinking safety first. I like my arms and legs.
Thanks for any advice.

First off, welcome to TF.

I'm thinking there is just enough friction on the clutch to allow the shaft to turn without any load on the shaft, but not actually any power to the shaft. You might try
1 Make sure the sure the tractor is NOT running, and in a safe location.
2 fully hook the mower up (just like you are ready to mow with it)
3 Make sure no one is near, the PTO is not enguaged, then crank up the tractor.

But there are a lot of people here with more experience than me.
Just BE CAREFUL, and good luck

Welcome to TractorForum, on my 8N my shaft doesnt turn all the time however on my father in laws 8N it does and once a load is connected does not turn until engaged so this is something that you will have to check very carefully. That being said you do know that the lift will only work if the PTO shaft is turning. If you disengage the PTO the lift will not lift at all, I thought I would just throw that in there because some people dont know that about the 8N.

PTO turning

You should have an Over Run Coupler (OCR), you can disengage the PTO shaft by the lever to the left side of the tractor as you sit on the seat.

BE CareFul....you need to be around people that can help you more.

TRY ASKING QUESTIONS ON YESTERDAY'S TRACTOR.

Seems to me Zukeeper already suggested an over run coupler. What more help would you suggest OttoFord could use?

This is the place to post whatever help or knowledge offerings you have to help others out with especially if a safety issue is involved. That way everyone can benefit from it.
