Worn splines 42F woods mower

Postby weslypype » Tue Mar 24, 2015 7:45 pm

I have some seriously worn yoke on my mower deck (which I think is a 42F fasthitch woods mower). To the point that the yoke is really burning up the splines on PTO shaft. Does anyone have any ideas of if and where I could locate a new yoke for this model?

Woods parts are still available. Check the internet for a nearby dealer.

Does it look like the picture? I thought there was a manual at the top of the page but I can't find it. I have the parts manual for the RM42CF, PM me if you want it, too large (1.5 mb) to post. The FH part for attaching is obsolete, no longer available, per WOODS customer service factory support. Stan

No.. looks different than the RM42.

Thanks Cecil, Ed mentioned to check Messick's. I probably should have listened to him the first time around.

Here's just the drive shaft info on the RM42CF, might be the same.

Here is the link ( I hope!) for the Woods 42F (PDF) manual from RUDI'S MANUALS above:
http://www.cleancomputes.com/Cub/OEM%20Implement%20and%20Attachment%20Manuals/Woods%20Mower%20Manuals/PDFs/Woods%2042%20F-4%20for%20Farmall%20Cub%20with%20Fast%20Hitch/Woods%2042%20F-4%20for%20Farmall%20Cub%20with%20Fast%20Hitch.pdf
Page 8, Part #4 (Splined yoke) of the Front Universal Drive, I believe is what you are looking for?

Well, I hate to say it, but the best of luck finding one! They are "no longer available" from Woods. Of course, you might get lucky and find the one shop that just happens to have one on the shelf in the attic. I've been looking for about 2 years. Finally bought an old rusty parts mower, and am in the process of separating the front of the drive shaft from the back half.

Since you only need the yoke, you MIGHT try a driveline shop. Maybe they can split the universal and put in a new 10-spline yoke. Anyway, good luck and let us know how you do.

I saw a new driveshaft that was sold at agri supply that was used at the DSCF with the spline adapter that fit

The problem I had was that the splined shaft FROM the mower was also 10-spline...not square or triangular or 6-spline like most newer ones.

Thanks all, I found a nearby engineer shop that might be able to help out in fabricating something. Will report back if I have any luck!

Why couldn't you just weld the yoke to the splined input shaft. Yea, you wouldn't be able to take it off at the mower, but who cares as long as you could take it off at the tractor. If it's already shot, you wouldn't be hurting anything. Just a thought.

You would probably care if a bearing goes out.

Not sure if I'm following -- weld the yoke to the PTO shaft of the tractor?

I think this in reference to Dale's post of the splined input shaft from the mower, (Could be wrong). Have you checked Messicks? There is a large selection of Woods parts, (seems rather expensive).
