  • Old Wood's PTO coupler "spider"
  • I'm trying to find a replacement "spider" for the 3 1/2" coupler which goes between my 9N PTO shaft and the Hydreco gear pump for my Sherman backhoe. The original spider was a reinforced fiber disc with 6 holes in it which fit the coupler teeth, teeth are 1/2" at the wide end. Only markings on the coupler are 3 1/2, Wood's, and B. Haven't found anything that matches yet. This mentions it in section K as Disc-Coupling 54B219 but doesn't show a picture
    This is what I have

  • My bet is that item is NLA from Woods or anybody else. If it were me I'd start looking for a replacement coupler rather than that disc. What is the geometry of the shaft on the pump?

  • It's a 1 inch splined shaft on the pump, but I think I'm going to try and make my own spider. I found a 5/8 inch thick chunk of steel reinforced rubber, seems plenty rugged, I think I can drill holes in it and then shape them to fit the teeth on the coupler halves.

  • I have never seen a PTO coupler like that. I have seen them used as a stationary coupling between pumps etc. I would take it to a bearing center and see if they can match it.
