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.

Got a couple pics this morning, and video is uploading as I type.  Man do I wish I could try my tiller with this, but it'll be a few weeks before the ground gets anywhere near dry enough.  In the meantime I can wrap this pto project up & get the 3 point lift back on.  All is bolted in solid now.

Here's the video.  When showing the JD430 pto shaft on the hydro, I just said "JD430 clutch" when I should have said JD430 clutch SHAFT".  I wan't going to shoot another video on account of that little glitch.

Daniel, I admire you ability to "get stuff done"... It would take me weeks to do what you whip in a few days. Looks good and should be handy!

Finished wiring a switch to the rear pto.  All is "almost" ready for a real test with the tiller as soon as the ground dries.  I say almost, as now out of the blue, I have an oil leak from the steering orbital valve.  Can't see back in there till I take the battery out.  I might get to that tomorrow.  Hoping it's just a loose fitting.

Plowing my garden with Hogzilla this morning.  Over half done and (I) got too warm, so came in to change out insulated bibs for bluejeans.  Once plowing is finished, then after lunch I'll put the tiller on & test the rear pto a couple passes.

I thought you meant the tractor overheated, whew. Don't scare us like that. What about the oil leak? Loose fitting, or are you leaving a trail to be able to find the shop again?

Well, once the oil leak soaked past the battery tray, I realized it was engine oil.  While running the wiring for the rear pto clutch, I guess I pressed against the plastic oil gauge line too hard & snapped it off.  Just went & got a compression coupling & repaired it.  I'll likely replace the line with copper if I ever get around to it.  I like to run the copper inside vinyl tubing for protection, then you never have any issues.
