Looking for a PTO for my 310. Would like the complete assembly, but at very least I need the inner clutch plate, and outer PTO bearing.
What direction does the front PTO Pulley turn on a wheel horse D180 with a Kohler K482 as you face the front of the tractor?
I want to get a hydraulic pump for a Johnson 10 loader I will be mounting to tractor and want to make sure I get a pump that rotates the correct direction.

Its been a while since I was able to work on my 416-8 rebuilt and right now the few brain cells are having a tough time.
I am in the process of putting the wiring harness back in and the problem is the clutch safety switch.
The arm with the idler wheel that engages the switch is over ridding the switch arm.
I had tried adjusting the rod from the peddle to the arm but no matter my adjustment I still have the problem
I am kinda at my wits end on this one.
Any help will be greatly appreciated

The clutch spring on my 308-8 broke, so the tractor stopped dead. It was easy to see the broken red spring, after I removed the right rear wheel. I was able to order a replacement spring which I replaced today. Problem now there is too much slack on the drive belt. The tractor will move, but barely as if the drive belt is not tight and slipping. It seems that the clutch pulley isn't applying enough force against the belt. I have tried adjusting the clutch rod but that doesn't seem to make a difference. It only changes the position of the clutch pedal . I don't see any other adjustment option to put more pressure on the drive belt. The belt is old, but seems acceptable. Before the clutch spring, broke, the tractor would jump out in any gear. No slippage.
My first post on here so apologies in advance for any rookie mistakes.
First off, I am the proud owner of a "new to me" 312-8. I took it out for a spin yesterday and when I engaged the PTO, currently there is a 42 in side discharge mower deck on it, there were sparks flying from the disk directly below the muffler (maybe the flywheel or clutch?). Any idea what that may be and what needs to be addressed?
Thank you !!
