  • PTO removeal
  • I have a 1950 8N the PTO shaft needs to be removed
    I can unbolt it and pull it out about 6 inches and then it stops
    What can be holding it at that point

  • The shaft is likely twisted. So you will need to cut it.

  • Generally the twist is ahead of hyd pump where PTO coupler slips over shaft. This twist keeps the shaft from sliding reward through the hyd pump splines. Due to close spacing of pump to PTO coupler, you can't access shaft ahead of pump to cut it, so you have to cut it aft of pump and remove the pump with the cut off piece of shaft still in it. Then once out of tractor, cut it again in front of pump, but aft of twist, so that you can then remove the cut off piece out the rear of pump.
