Hi guys, thanks for the replys.
i should have gone into a bit more detail when first posting :)
i have the top cover off, oil out. The rear part of the shaft slid straight out once cut. So all thats left is the stump of the shaft stuck through the pump. I have removed the bottom cover bolts so the pump is loose and jiggled and wiggled the pump and shaft to no avail,its still stuck. I can slide the pump back with the shaft in it BUT not far enough to drop the front of the spline out of the selector that bolts onto the gearbox
Im a member of the Harry Ferguson Club, and have made phone calls back and foward. I have also called some locals and the guy who usually does the major work on my tractor (who happens to be on holidays ATM). Apparently twisted p.t.o. shafts were a common problem when the clutch on a slasher is set to tight and you hit something..... thats exactly how i did mine. I was told that i would need to split the tractor and pull the twisted part out the front of the pump.
I have borrowed a manual but it must be a service manual.It must be 200 pages long.
