154 PTO Pilot Bearings

Postby sjm32157 » Wed Apr 01, 2020 6:46 pm

I went a couple of rounds last season with the PTO assembly in my 154. It was working great when I put it away for the winter. I have it out getting ready for mowing season and the PTO stays engaged. I tore it apart, checked everything and adjusted. Worked great for about 15 minutes and then it stuck in engaged position again. I think it might be the pilot/needle bearings since it acts like it is in a bind sometimes and they are about the only thing I haven't changed out yet. They look like a bear to get out of the shaft. Anyone have any good tricks to get this done?

Pack it full of grease and tap a rod the same size as the I.D. in it, should push the bushing out if it's a blind hole.
