J-D 850 PTO noise

Rick G. I just purchased a JD 850 that`s 30 yrs old. It`s my 1st tractor and I use it for wildlife food plots on leased property. I tried to till hardpan and demolished the cross on my PTO shaft and promptly repaired it. Now I notice that when my cutter is winding down I am getting a steady "clicking" noise from the PTO area with the clutch fully depressed and the PTO engaged. It quits as soon as I disengage the PTO lever. The guys at the dealership where I purchased the cutter told me that I had wrecked something in the PTO drive when I was trying to till. A few other folks said that was normal for my tractor and was a built in device to prevent the momentem of the implement from pushing the tractor in an emergency. I don`t know but I don`t want to do further damage by continuing to use!!! Thanks for your help.

Dale G. Basgall Try calling the oldest JD dealer and talk to Lauren. They have been in business since 1957 so you can get a straight answer from Lauren or he will ask and find out. Sumner Tractor, Sumner Washington.
