Long 460 has a 2 faced clutch. One side delivers power to the transmission, the other side to the pto. The lever to the left of the steering wheel which pivots on the left of the transmission case is the pto clutch lever. It supplies independent pto. There is no 2 speed pto. There is a high-low lever for the transmission, but this affects ground speed, not pto.
There is a pto gear lever mounted horizontally on the left top of the transmission case. There are 2 types of pto operation, independent and ground speed. The ground speed only works when the transmission is in gear and the foot clutch is out. To engage ground speed pto, run tractor at slow idle, push foot clutch in, mover pto gear lever to the right. Pto gears may grind and you can avoid this by cutting tractor off. For independant pto operation, which is preferred, raise pto clutch lever at the left of the wheel up until it locks, push foot clutch in, and move pto gear lever to the left. Gears grind worse doing this and you may want to cut tractor off and engage pto gear lever. To start pto turning, push in the spring loaded top of the pto clutch lever and move the lever down slowly, don't jerk implement for obvious reasons. To stop implement,raise pto clutch lever until it locks. When the pto lever is up, it is applying pressure on the clutch throughout bearing so don't run tractor with lever up for more than a few minutes. When not using pto, disengage pto gear shift lever and leave pto clutch lever down.
Hope this helps. Oh, and I would get a manual from Long,now Farmtrac.
