If your engagement pto handle is hard to engage and kicks back out the two bearings in the engagement levers are shot. These pto’s are simple to rebuilt. I worked on the super sized clutches on machine tool building. But new is good too.

Note, if your going to reuse the clutch pack file a knot have on the top of the clutch plate where the tooth is, remember to place each clutch plate the exact way it comes out of the drum.

Note, I have older and newer 154’s I thought I could swap out the older pto setup to my newer 154, easy swap right? Nada ain’t gonna work. There not in the same location.

Note, do not engage this pto at a high rpm. I jog the pto lever to get the 3250 mower mass spinning then fully engage the pto. It’s less wear on the clutch pack.

Buying the new setup and swapping out the old one is easier. But for $15 for bearings I repaired mine.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

This one wasn't kicking out, it was just slipping. It was a combination of a PTO from a 185 and parts from an early 154 PTO. I'm actually surprised the PTO from an early 154 isn't the same as a late model 154. My 185 PTO is in the same place as my early 154. Regardless, they are incredibly simple to rebuild and obviously cheaper. When I get a chance, I'll rebuild the old PTO and do a video, its going onto the 185 later this year.

I agree there simple to work on. It’s all common sense assembly wise. We had clutch setups on the machine tools like this just super sized.
