Default Adjust electric PTO?

Does anyone know if there any adjustment on the electric PTO of a 314 and how it is done? This one slips....

Also, is the PTO on the 314 the same one as the larger 300 series tractors? Thanks!

The PTO clutch brake adjustment has 3 self locking nuts that need a 9/16 socket to adjust up tighter. If this adjustment does not fix the problem then you will need a new clutch or at least new parts to fix up your old clutch.

I am unsure of which models used the same pto, until I saw this:

120 140 300 312 314 317

There are 3 slots (between the nuts) in the side of the PTO. Insert a .018 feeler gauge through the slots and adjust the gap (snug) using the above mentioned nuts. You will have to make 2 or 3 trips around to get the gap set right.

You need a feeler gage. It's a thin piece of metal of a certain thickness, and you insert it in those slots and tighten till it just resists a bit. Since yours spins immediately, you need to back off the 3 bolts first then use the feeler gage on it.

does the feeler guage go between the friction disk?I may have lost a part.the outside friction disk is forward of the slot with bolts too loose.nuts even with end of studs. Mel
