574 pto engages but won't run

Cliff I have a 1978 574 tractor that I dearly love to operate and it's a very dependable tractor, but a hydraulic line busted and after I had it replaced, my pto will now not run at all. The linkage will engage, but it's very stiff to shift into the operating position. I have checked everything I know to check, and still have had no luck. Looks like I might have to put her in the shop. Any help is greatly appreciated.
MGS It is a hydraulic PTO clutch. I assume that you have refilled the hydraulic system after the line busted. It wouldn't hurt to change the hyd. filter. You could also check for some mechanical interference with the linkage. Perhaps the new line is keeping the pto lever from its full travel.
Cliff Thankyou for responding, and yes it is a hydraulic PTO clutch. After the line was replace, 5 gallon of hydraulic fluid was indeed added. The local tractor mechanic said it looked like the brake on the pto was sticking. I put it into the shop today, so the next time this happens, I'll know what to do. Been a long time since I done any mechanical work myself. Once again, thanks for your help and I'll let ya know how it all turns out.
