Many years ago my father purchased this Homelite ut34004A garden tractor with tiller implement from a close friend who was a farmer.  My dad only ever used the tiller a couple times a year.  Its been in storage for close to 5 years now and has been given to me.  

 

I went to use the tiller on my yard to till and level the soil and when turning on the PTO the tractor shook and made a lot of noise.  Upon further inspection it looks like the pillow block bearing is wore out but also the PTO shaft is bent and no longer straight.  Along with that, this tractor has not seen maintenance in many years so the shaft collars and pulley are rusted on tight and my attempts at removal have failed.  I've been looking to find a manual that shows the PTO shaft and its size but so far I've not seen it in any manual I've looked at or else I am blind and missing it.

 

Does anyone have an idea where I can find out the shaft size and where I may be able to order a new one?  Attached is an image of the shaft.  Side note, I'm not a mechanic but enjoy taking things apart and putting back together every now and then.  Thank you for your help.

:wave: Welcome to the forum! The shaft size will be 3/4". This manual may be of some help.

Thanks for the manual link.  That appears to be exactly what I was looking for.  I appreciate the help.

I rebuilt my PTO some years back. It's on an Ford LGT165. Not sure where I got the parts from. Been too long.

Welcome to GTT. That is a nice tractor and is well worth fixing up. There are more manuals in our Manuals Section. You will find that many of the parts on old garden tractors are "off the shelf " and are available through hardware stores and NAPA. Our Sponsors on the top of the Forums page can help too. We are all in this together. Good Luck, Rick

Thanks again for your help KennyP.  I was able to order replacement parts for that whole shaft assembly and put it back together today.  Can't even hear the shaft turn on anymore if it wasn't for the tiller attachment.

   Welcome. Nice machine, remember grease and oil are the least expensive parts you will ever buy. Don
