The sprockets are lined up and the frame is marked where the mounting holes for the pillow block bearings will go.

The mounting holes are drilled and threaded into the frame.

Both of the bearings are bolted in place.

The jack shaft is slid into the bearings and the sprocket is set back on the shaft.

I haven't cut the keyway for the sprocket into the end of the shaft yet.

After I get the sprocket on the other end set up and the shaft cut off to the correct length, then I'll cut the keyways in both ends.

The #50 chain and tension sprocket are mounted on the tractor.

Now I'm waiting on parts to complete the final drive on the other side.

This is the new sprocket for the detachable chain.

I fit a hub to it and welded it on one side.

The sprocket is slid onto the jack shaft and then the jack shaft is cut off a little ways past it.

The jack shaft is set up in the mill so I can cut the keyways into it.

The fit of the key is first checked.

And the fit of the sprocket is checked before I un-clamp the jack shaft and turn it around to machine the other keyway.

The jack shaft is re-assembled on the tractor and the chains are put on the sprockets.

Looks real good, hope it slows it down enough.

Never noticed the drive chain was detachable before. That wasn't a Centaur part. They had an odd size roller chain.

That detachable farm chain was the only thing that I could find locally that fit the Centaur sprockets.
