This is NOT about changing brake bands, or adjusting them. I know how to do it, I have done it several times, and I believe I have done it correctly too.


This is about making the PTO stronger (withstanding more torque before slipping). My tractor has 110 hp (due to added turbo charger) in stead of the original 80 hp or so. When running at  full engine speed, the tractor is simply too strong for the PTO. In addition to proper adjustments, I have also ditched the standard gear oil for a wet brake oil, giving somewhat better friction for the brake bands. Still, it is not enough.


I would be surprised if no one else has ever attempted to upgrade the PTO, or at least modifying it. So far I have not been able find any info about this on the internet. If anybody knows something, please let me know.
