I have a rear pto on a series truck. I have used it to power a hay conveyor, pto generator, manure spreader and I have mowed a couple of times with it. For stationary use you put the transfercase in neutral and pick a transmission gear for the rpms and then set the engine speed to adjust rpms. pto turns fastest in 4th, slowest in 1st, it turns backwards in reverse and of course stops when you put in the clutch.

My winch is PTO driven. It's a Fairey PTO that came from the factory with it. It's ok but I would prefer a electric winch. I'm keeping just for nostalgia. It still pull great but is dead in the water if the engine dies.

what I want to do is input an electric motor into the PTO area of the xfr case to run the defender via battery power...that's why I'm trying to get info on how that PTO input/output stuff works...any insights are welcome...

If it wasn't such a PITA to take out I'd do it. It's surprising how many times I have used it. It ain't just sitting there looking pretty

An EV? Please elaborate!

I could be wrong, but I'm guessing you'd need a way to engage the clutch in order to power it from the PTO (taking the engine out of the drivetrain). I'm not sure that the clutch diaphragm spring and throwout bearing would last long though.

that's the knowledge I am looking for...is there a way to input power to PTO to rotate the drive train? what would happen if you just kept the trans in neutral while applying electric power to the PTO?

Realy not sure. Sounds like LRover could confirm or deny this. Might very well work, as long as you don't mind having no gearing. It's my understanding that although an electric motor has great torque, if you want efficiency (which is the goal here), you need to run it at high rpms and I am not sure you can achieve that without gearing.

I'm very interested in this topic, although I'm currently of the opinion that a Defender is too heavy and doesn't have the aerodynamics to make it worth trying on.

The PTO connects to the output of the transmission and could drive the tranfercase. When I mow with my series, the mower's centrifical force will actually push the vehicle at times and putting in the clutch does not help.
