HELP - Craftsman GT5000 Electric PTO Noise

1168 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  dave_r
The electric PTO on my GT5000 makes a racket when not engaged and is silent when it is engaged. Is it likely that I need to replace the entire PTO or is it possible I just need to replace a pulley? I'm guessing I need to replace the entire PTO but I would like confirmation or suggestions.

Supposed it could be the bearing? Is the belt in good shape? I would try to observe it while running.
It's with reluctance that I say this.......once a bearing starts talking, it's often times too late. Do try the lube, though!
