I just bought a 60 yesterday and it seems the pto is locked up. I never had a 60 so I don"t know much about it. Bought 5 tractors and this is one of them. Don"t have much in it so that may be a good thing. The pto want turn , the rock shaft want turn either. Does the pto have to be in gear for the lift to work? Any help would be great.

When "OFF", the PTO will not turn because it has an internal Brake.
To operate, the PTO must be engaged BEFORE the engine is started , then the foot lever must be engaged.
There is an "On-Off" on the Hydraulic Pump that must only be engaged with the engine OFF.
Try that and see if they work..

Correction: the 60 uses a lever on the right side of the seat to operate the PTO instead of a foot lever as is on a 620/630.

Does it have (optional) live pto, with the lever at the right side of the seat? Been 30 years since I had a 60 but I think the hyd can be turned off at the governor housing?

When You say locked up... Does that mean the PTO turns all the time, & wont shut off, or wont turn even with a pipe wrench on it when the engine is off, & the engage lever disengaged?

I have owned 3 60's, & never had trouble with the PTO's. Only thing I did was occasionally adjust the PTO clutch. All had live PTO's with 2 levers. 1 on the floor that shifted sideways. 1 on the side of the battery box (Engage/disengage lever).

If You have not tried a pipe wrench on the shaft, Please do! & try it with the levers in all positions.

Engage lever by your right foot that is just off the pedestal platform. Start engine. DO not try to engage this lever by your foot with the engine running as it will grind gears this is meant to be engaged when the engine is off. Now after you engage the lever by your right foot and then start the engine then pull up on the lever on the right side of the battery box. It should cam up into a locked position. This starts the PTO shaft turning. Of course these steps assume you have the live PTO option on your 60.

She looks pretty good and rear tires are excellent. Even has fenders which is unusual.
The nice folks at 1-800-522-7448 have real JD operators and service manuals. They are cheaper than ripping the gears out of the hydraulic pump or pto drive.

Looks like they answered the PTO question for ya...as far as the rock shafts; turn the tractor off, then rotate the handle on the Hydraulic pump (left side in front of your foot behind the dash by the governor) to the "ON" position, the start the tractor and your hydraulic control (usually on left beside the seat, but occasionally on right) should get the rockshats moving, but with no weight on 'em they won't rotate down so just take a pipe wrench, put it over either side, and push down a lil bit while holding the lever back.

Thanks to all of you that responded to my question. I think I will be able to get all the levers and all in the right place to see if it works, it probably will, I never had a 60 so a little slow on how it all works. Would love to trade this tractor for a hand start B if anyone is interested. I'm in Ms..

Send me some pics of the B 601 5731854. One other question
about this 60. What power steering fluid should I use and how
much does it hold?

If you drain it, some fluid will stay in PS system , If you can find out , from previous owner what was used in it; mixing dif. fluids can cause problems , (foaming etc.) Good chance it has original John Deere special power steering oil , available at JD dealer...
