The universal joint on the tractor end was not located properly and it slid forward and it will be this that has worn away the threads. It can also be caused by the PTO shaft being tight and not telescoping properly and this will force the front U/J forward and it wears the housing then. Be sure to thoroughly clean both halves of the PTO shaft so they telescope easily, don't use any oil or grease as that will collect crud and make it even harder. If the shaft doesn't move easily it can also pull the shaft out of the tractor as well as force it right in.. John(UK)

Thanks, John.

I found a good photo of the PTO shaft cover on another site (couldn"t find one offered at YT), and mine has no threads where they should be. (From the photo, it looks like the internal threads should be nearly out to the edge of the cover.)

How difficult is that cover to change? I have the Shop Manual, but it doesn"t always tell the whole story.
