Manual says not to leave pto clutch disengaged for any length of time do I disengage pto clutch then engage or disengage pto then reengage clutch and leave it engaged when not using pto. Then when I want to use the PTO disengage clutch, engage pto lever then slowly engage pto clutch. ? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Just building the tractor and do not want to burn out the new cutch i am installing

I've got an L2501 and the local mechanic said to depress the clutch and engage PTO at idle. Release clutch and bring engine up to PTO speed. Depress clutch again to disengage PTO as disengaging without using clutch will cause added wear on gear faces. I've been sticking with his advice.
