The PTO shaft on my Jet Star keeps turning after disengagement. Thought the clutch might be out of whack, but it is releasing fine. It does free wheel while sitting with the engine off. When the engine is running the shaft turns and is not easy to stop. I can't stop it readily with a leather gloved hand. Is this normal or is there something I need to do to make it not turn when not engaged? Thanks for stopping by.

I remember that from new on we always had to stop the engine on Dads 445 to hook up the pto .

Most all of mine do that. If you hook it to an implement with enough "drag" to stop the pto and it stops then it should be just fine, but if you hook it to something and it doesnt stop....then there is a problem.

1st of all, NEVER-NEVER-NEVER try to stop a turning pto shaft by hand, gloved or not. Would you put your gloved hand in by the radiator to try stop the fan??? Try to think what would happen if your glove got caught on a rough edge of the spinning shaft. If any you of want to continue to do this at least use your nonwriting hand. Use a board or something similar if you need to test this. Sorry about the rant but we read about this too often and could lead to less than satisfactory results. Now the problem at hand so to speak. The shaft can continue to spin for several reasons: oil drag, wrapped discs, improperly adjustments and no or bad pto brake, all of which in and of themselves may not be serious but in combinations can lead to hooked up machines to operate when the lever is in disengaged position. The bottom line is to BE CAREFUL and if there is need for concern get help. DON'T GET HURT, Dale, any questions, call 920 295 3278

I can agree with that. Most of the pto shafts on our MM's seem to keep turning too, if not hooked to something.
