Kinda new here having been a big fan of the big Wheel horses (the 'D' series) so when I ran up on this 1650 and the 'beefiness' of it, I scarfed it up. Been sitting outside for many years (imagine that!) and many parts/pieces frozen with rust. Have been lucky so far in salvaging the various parts/pieces, but this one has me stumped!
Its the PTO .. stub? shaft that attaches at the tractor. I guess what my biggest problem is - How do you normally remove it when its not rusted/corroded?? Pull on the ring, push it ...?? cuss it? (Ive done a lot of that) I have successfully freed the ring and the balls but still nothing. I wondered if maybe at some point the shaft had been jammed up on to the splines and that might have it frozen, but I put a pretty hefty pull on it and, again nothing!
Pretty impressed with thing, its BUILT! Being built tough is what had me impressed with the big WH's, but this MF is really impressive. (had never even knew MF made a garden tractor!)
