Coupling gave way. Took out the lift cylinder and the valve line. Looks like the drive shafts bent. Plastic fins on the command half gone, but still runs. 

 

going to be a while before I can fix it. Will it be better  to drain the hydro  fluid or tape it up till I can get to it?

Wow, really Grenaded there!  Something else lock up to do that?  Does the rear end still turn OK?  Maybe needed some better grade bolts at the joints?  With some lock type nuts or washers?

Drive shaft still turns, the engine isn't  sitting  perfectly straight. Maybe that's why.

How did that sound when it happened. Hate to hear of such a problem this time of the year. I agree tape it up good to keep the dust & critters out until later.

Loud boom and plastic everywhere  from the fan fins. Engines out i'm guessing  these brackets aren't  original.

How long did you own this before this failure? I would be curious to see the failure analysis. Did you run over something and it caught the driveshaft?

 

I would like to understand what caused that.

I'm guessing you had a repower in there! Cause that is not a normal engine mount and the original ones look in sad shape!

I had just put new gas and the engine was surging, I blew out the fuel line and was alternating between full throttle and idle when boom. Got it all took apart ( it's  amazing how easy it is on this tractor). Looks  like the engine  only needs the fan blades and a couple of frayed  wires replaced. The tractors going to need a new drive shaft, coupler, adapter and whatever that material is between the drive shaft and coupler, line from valve to filter and line from valve to lift cylinder.

Sad news indeed!
What kind of engine are You running in it?
It originally would have had a Kohler single on isolation rubber mounts.
If someone mounted the engine solid in there maybe it wasn't well aligned?

It was a kohler command ch13 out of a cub it was just slightly out of line. I got it the middle of October. It's been a beast so far moved lots of stone, and snow.
