Well after the battery terminal issue and belt blowing for the mower, I fixed all that, went to now and no pto!!! WTF I say, check for power, all good, ohm the coil.... DOH!!
Pulled off the pto and it is destroyed.... Seems something warped and it was hitting in a few different places, needless to say... Its junk... But i have a few spares thank goodness and will be making a brand new "bellhousing" to hold the pto and a brand new crank adapter just because...i dont like it. And at the same time install the factory pto.

Sometimes it's all you can do just to keep things running. It'll pass and then it's trouble free tractor seat time for you!

Well we're on the road to recovery!!! Happy joy!!! Got the shaft/flywheel all trued up and the new adapter plate made and mounted . it looks better, and runs way smoother too. ( found the factory adapter plate was WAY out on the flywheel and this ruined the clutch. I thought it was the clutch pulley that was all wonky, so much for thought..,.
Anyways here are a few shots of it all together mostly.

Looks like a good fix you did there. That didn't take you long. :thumbs:

I find it's always rewarding to improve on those things that fail. Eventually

they all do.

Go do work son. I hate it when my stuff breaks. I don't mind other peoples stuff going wonky but I hate it when it is mine.

Actually, I Like it when I see a new car/tractor/vehicle broke down, or wonky, When I drive/ride/mow by.

 

I used to get the biggest kick from seeing a new car on the side of the road, and my old 71 F150 kept powering on,

 

Of course this was the late 90s

"Geez don't mind me if I find humor in your miss fortunes" Don't worry guys I won't ....
Got all the sheet metal on last night , even fixed a boo boo that it was developing ( I soldered it back on and repaired the rust and dent with lead ) Seems the nose mounting point decided to tear at the shell so it was the correct time to repair, now all I need to do is get'er painted tonight . Then mowin' duty tomorrow !!
