After getting calf feed ground & other chores wrapped up, I spent some time on the pto. All is bolted up & fully operational! Using my photo tach, I checked the pto output speed. When the engine is at 2400rpm, the pto is turning 2,000. The diesel is sounding plenty busy at that speed, so I'm sure there will be MORE than enough power for anything I'm doing with the pto. 2400 to 2500 rpm is the top of the peak torque curve anyway.
I still have some braces I will be adding to strengthen the rear plate, but no rush on doing that. I still have to run wiring for the pto & add a switch. Now that I'm so close to being able to till with this tractor, the ground will be wet to China for weeks!
Battery was almost dead in the camera, so pics & video sometime tomorrow. Kind of tired, so not going back to the shop tonight.
