Found the description but the the photos were photobucket so they are long gone.
Having an ORC (Over Running Clutch) on the PTO shaft for brush hogging adds a good measure of safety. Having that additional length and girth of the ORC down there in the open air spinning at 540 RPM’s with fingers, arms, shoelaces, sleeves and the like in the way is not safe. I posted the question the other day about ORC covers and received a number of great responses including some ideas for building such a cover from “Crem” and “Heybusdriver”. Both of those guys built one out of steel and did a fine job of it. Thanks much guys. Unfortunately, I do not own a welder and having it done just isn’t as much fun as doing it yourself. I decided to make one out of 4 inch, schedule 40 ABS sewer pipe. There is something poetic about having a chunk of sewer pipe hanging off the rear of The Beast!
I first made some studs to replace the bolts that hold the limit chain brackets out of 7/16 – 14 all thread. I used 2 jam nuts to provide a spacer between the limit chain bracket and a 4-inch ABS “Johnny ring” flange. The flange bolt pattern is very close to the 4-¼ inch pattern on the limit chain brackets, I just needed to drill out the flange to accept the 7/16 studs. I then glued a male threaded connector on the Johnny ring and cut a short length of pipe and put a cap on it to allow for easy removal.
Now I can keep the ORC in place while using other implements without the worry that someone can get caught up in it.
