I have a Ford tractor 7740SL. My PTO does not turn over. Is this an electrical problem or internal?
I am not familiar with the model but I have some experience with the PTO fitted to truck gearboxes for various purposes. These are fairly crude spur gears and consequently are designed to be engaged only when needed and can be damaged if the vehicle is driven at road speeds with the PTO engaged.
The PTO can be a simple mechanical drive via a propellor shaft or direct to a hydraulic pump, water pump or generator and engagement is a matter of sliding an idler gear into mesh between the gearbox layshaft and the PTO and this is accomplished by manually operated rod or cable, switched vacuum, air pressure or electrical means; motor or solenoid.
It is easier to discover what is wrong if you first discover how it is supposed to work.
