Udate: PTO Engagement Woes

Postby Ron » Thu Oct 07, 2004 1:10 pm

If you all remember I was having trouble getting my PTO to engage correctly.
I repaired it by building up the flat spots worn on the shifter pin.

The thing that still cocerned me was the 1/4" of in-out play in the trans/shaft.

When I overhauled the engine a month or so ago, while I had it apart I replace the front shaft bearing/seal, and retainer.

I really thought that I had replace this combination on to the shaft the same way they had came off.

Well, I split the tractor this morning and sure enough it was installed backwards.

You know what they say, either do it right or you get to do it again!!

All in all, doing a rear split wasn't as bad as I had thought.

Not that I would want to do it again just for the fun of it!!

Thanks again to Bigdog and the rest for the help!!

Good deal Ron! You should be good to go for a while now.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
