The pto clutch is a dry clutch system, you may have oil leaking from the transmission seal inside. When it gets onto the pto clutch disc they stick. I had the same problem with mine. Is there any oil leaking from the pto inspection cover? Remove the pto inspection cover under the tractor and take a look in there. Hopefully all you need to do is adjust the pto clutch - As per my manual - 1973 Oliver 550. To adjust the clutch, stop engine, release pto lever (push it forward) Remove hand hole cover from under the tractor. The hand hole cover is about in the center of the tractor held in place by four small bolts. Reach through the hand hole and rotate the pto clutch assembly until the adjusting ring lock pin is on the bottom of the assembly. With a screwdriver tip, depress the locking pin and rotate the adjusting ring to the next notch. Clockwise to increase, counterclockwise to decrease clutch engagement pressure. Very easy to do, it may take a few notches to get it adjusted correctly. Pick up an owners manual ASAP and do some searching and reading on this site, lots of good info here. Good Luck and congrats on your new purchase.
