While resealing the right side external 3-pt. lift cylinder, I put the hyd. hose behind, instead of in front of the PTO on/off rod. This made the rod bind on another hose. After I had finished, I started the engine to test the 3-pt. I noticed that the PTO was turning. I got in the cab and checked to see if the PTO was turned off. I then checked the PTO shaft and found it still turning. I then killed the engine and moved the PTO rod and adjusted it also. I then started the engine and checked the PTO first. It wasn't turning. I turned it on and it came on. I turned the lever to off and checked it. It was still running. What do I need to do to fix or adjust it to make it stop turning when the lever says off? This is on a 1955. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Take the rod off and try just moving the lever on the valve by hand and make sure it shuts off. If it does OK,then adjust the rod accordingly. Those things will throw you if they're even half a turn out of adjustment.

If you are talking about a hydraulicly activated PTO clutch (1755, 2-85, etc.), the off and brake are two different positions. If you have the habit of putting the lever all the way back while there is still coasting load on the implement you have probably smoked the brake plate. And like a light bulb it works EVERY TIME till the LAST time.
