I got the PTO apart last night, and have bearings on order.
But I'm faced with a bit more of repair on the PTO, than just the
bearings. I just can't believe someone ran it long enough, without the front bearing, to
wear down the shaft this much. They even tried to stop the rattle/clanking, by smearing silicone
on the bearing flange. Why wouldn't they just cut the belt off, if removing the deck belt, and then
the PTO belt, seemed like too much work.

OK so what RPMs does this PTO shaft turn in relation to the motor and what does it power?

Not sure about the RPM. (I'll look in the manuals)
It powers the tiller. There is a picture in the first post I think.

It runs at engine speed more or less. I see it got against the points cover too! Unless you have some one that can weld it back up and turn it down, I would see about having a new shaft made. It only has the 2 woodruff keys at the ends and one hole thru.

Will, there were a couple of fords in that salvage place I found. When I can I'll look to see if there's a hood/grill. I posted the pics
in ?? "This Save will take the U.S. Marines? not sure , I'll look ----By the way will you paint it Blue or Massey Red? :bounce:

Can't find either my pics or the post, so when I get back there, I'll check on them.

Yeah, I wasn't sure on pulley size, but I guess they're the the same, as manual says it runs at engine speed.
I plan to weld up the shaft, and get brother to clean it up in his lathe.

Lee, I think I can save the grill and hood I have. Red or Blue, or yellow. :smilewink:

Wasn't sure if you had someone to turn it back down. Be sure to have new points set right before re installing. Darned hard to get back in there once the shaft is in place!

I'm missing the lift linkage that raises/lowers the tiller.

Would anyone have one they could measure up for me? Thanks.

Is that the 3/8" X 2" 1-1/2" bar from the lift in front of the pedals going back? If so, I can get that later today. It also works for the sleeve hitch. I was going to upload a drawing this morning, but you can't read the measurements on it. I need to make up a new one. Should have it this evening some time.

I'd have used bacon grease instead of the silicone. Once it started getting warm, it would smell so good! :smilewink:
