HELP - Craftsman GT5000 Electric PTO Noise

1159 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.

Belt is in good shape and there is no wobble or vibration when it's running.

Now that I know it comes apart and what to look for, I may try greasing it up first - no need to drop $100 if I don't need to.

Thanks fellows!
