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 rrr_ranch

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.
