Thanks for all the replies, finally got the main pivot bolt loose with a 4ft cheater bar and loosened the support brackets. got it moving but it will only move about 3 inches. Gonna try to apply tractor power.[/quote]

Sound as if you haven't checked the telescoping driveshaft to see that it's seized. 3" movement of tongue isn't very much.

You hit the nail on the head. It has to be siezed in the rear 7-9,I have the front shield off and the rear shield (steel) won't slide out enough to expose the joint and so far have had no success removing the u-joint. The shaft won't pull forward or to the rear. Thinking of trying to yank it free from the front with a chain behind the u-joint.

On my 347 baler if the plastic shield retainer clips are removed the rear "shorter" shield will slide forward exposing the stuck shafts then you could apply the torch heat.

On this 327 it will only move enough to expose the u-joint. It's a metal tube, if it was plastic I would slit it and remove. How hard is it to remove the shaft at clutch? At this stage I may have to pull the bolt on draw bar, seperate at the clutch and take the entire assy to town. A straight pull with comealong wouldn't budge it.

Have you tried forcing the short metal shield forward?? I just went through freeing up the same type shaft on a 347 baler and the shield in question slid forward. The slip/overrunning clutch assembly is easy to remove(drive out 1 roll pin) except the shaft in question has to slide on the solid hex shaft for easy removal. Clutch removal can be accomplished by removing tongue attaching bolt and sliding tongue,pto & clutch forward.If this was my baler I'd just cut the metal shield off with a cutting torch and proceed to heat the 2 shafts. I'll bet a JD dealer service dept will charge you $250-$300+ to fee the shafts.

I agree with you 100%. Since the baler is for sale I put it back togeather again and will wait and see what potential buyer has to say. To a local it may not make any difference and if they say it has to be fixed I'll cut the shield off and use a torch. Thank's again for all your help and advice. Regards

I would think that the pto shaft will need to be freed up if you sell the baler so the baler can be transported either by towing or hauling.

Hi:

The front shaft is free and loose and you can push it all the way in so when it rests in the round hook holder it is even with the front of baler tongue. Granted it will be awkward to tow or load and I may have to fix before sale. So far, I have had little response to my ads. January may not be best time to sell the thing.

Thanks

TXJim:
I'm sure your right on the shaft being stuck at the baler end #7 to #9. Going by your diagram, I have removed 3 #1 bolts and nuts and retaining clips #13. The metal shield #8 will only go forward far enough to access grease port and the entire shaft will not move forward in direction of tractor pto. I tried pulling the entire shaft out with a comealong but no luck. Can you think of any way to get the entire shaft out so I can take it to town and have a dealer seperate the shaft? Any more help would be appreciated.
