Re: Jd 2030 Pto
There were a couple of options on types of PTO. Do you have the lever that you pull up in between the gearshift levers? That is the independent pto. With that type, there is a brake band inside the transmission that stops the pto. It is applied using transmission oil pressure. Chances are that you have a broken band or a brooken oil line that sends pressure to activate it. Either pproblem requires splitting the tractor between the transmission and clutch housings. If you don't want to split tractor, there should be a disconnect lever by your left heel you can disegage to stop from turning.
Some of the 2030's had a two stage clutch, that requires pushing clutch all the way to the floor to disconnect the clutch and it used the same lever by your left heel to engage and disengage the gears. If this is the type you have, then either the clutch is stuck or out of adjustment.
