Re: How does a Trans PTO work?
IMo, they named it wrong. Should have been called a clutch driven PTO. Assuming the "Britts" built it like Henry and Harry designed it, the PTO is driven through the clutch, to the transmission, through the transmission, and toward the rear of the tractor where the PTO engagement lever is, and then out the rear. If the PTO engagement lever is on and the clutch is engaged the PTo turns. "Tractor won't stop", you need an overrun coupler at the PTO. Short version, got to go.

Ford 850 -- the workhorse--does it all
