During my GT17 teardown I found what appears to be damage to the keyway on the crankshaft stub for the front PTO. It appears to approximately correspond to the length of the PTO key.
I was hoping you all could give me your thoughts on if this was normal or not and what a fix might be if not.
I suspect the proper fix would be to weld and re-machine, though the thought of possible distortion of the crank gives me pause. Would filling the gap with JB weld and sanding smooth be an option?
