|bd potts||I have a 316 with a 46 inch deck and quite often I can engage the pto to start the mower deck. Sometimes the mower deck will work, and sometimes it does not. Often just by moving the shifter (for foward & reverse) to the reverse postion the mower will start. Other times we have play or move the shifter several times before it will work. If the above does not work simply waiting a while then it (mower) will work. Are there any adjustments to make? Is the the pto clutch bad? I have tried replacing the pto switch and that did not help. Has anyone else had this kind of problem with mower deck operation?
|Dave||bd - Do you have the later model 316 with an Onan engine? If so, it could be the neutral switch is out of adjustment. You really need the service manual to get the procedure to check and adjust the switch. Another thing it could be is the air gap on the pto clutch, if the problem presents itself when everything is warmed up. The clutch air gap needs to be adjusted when everything is cool. There are three spring loaded adjustment nuts on the face of the clutch. Along side each nut is a slot. Slip an 0.018" feeler gage into one of the slots. Adjust the adjacent nut until a slight drag is achieved on the gage. Repeat at the remaining two locations, then repeat twice more at each location. - Dave
