Got my front PTO/yoke apart to discover the seat of the front bearing flange had shattered at some point in its life and someone gooped it up with some epoxy material.
Ordering a new one out of the way, you guys with a known good front end, does your front yoke have significant front-to-back wobble? Mine did hence the reason for the teardown. Looking at it I reckoned the yoke-pivot-shaft acts as the spacer for the bearings and takes up the slop when everything is it should be. Just want to know what to expect when I get it back together. Maybe make some spacers to fit in-between the yoke and frame?
