When the ORC is on by itself, is it common to have lots of wiggle room from the point of the split pin, even though the spline feels right? It spins fine when engages and by itself.

Also, where the shaft U-joint connects to the ORC, there is just the spring loaded lock pin, but there is also another hole passage as though another pin should go through the hole in the ORC.

the holes aren't threaded for zerks. Are they intended for push type grease guns or Grade 2 bolts?

When one has the spring loaded push pin, is that all that is necessary?



Any visible brown juice is coincidental; only the product name has been withheld to protect the innocent. :D

Thanks boss!

Maybe it got jammed because of a PTO shaft screw up before I got it.

It came with my tractor.

I'll try gingerly turning it with a pipe wrench and the shaft immobile, in the direction of shaft travel.

If it locks up too easily after freeing it. . . I'll get another one.

With the PTO engaged and the engine off, I can only turn mine in one direction, so you may have a problem.

I'm trying to check Overrunning Coupler function to see if it works OK, but I was under the impression that if I engaged the PTO with the engine off I should be able to turn the coupler one way but not the other.

It turns freely in both directions with the shaft immobile.

I thought I should be able to turn it freely only in one direction . . . or does it take centrifugal spin to cause the coupler to disengage the mower from the PTO??

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see


Thanks for the answers.


Soaking the heavily rusted inner shaft and sliding it back and forth. Instant black/brown rust pouring off and a slick shaft now.
