A few things could have happened here, if the PTO shaft from the HOG is tight and it is hard to "telescope" into the other half, it could have pulled the PTO out of the gear inside, but usually it will show at the back end as the shaft will stick out more than it used to do. You could have broken the PTO shaft in the tractor but it is unusual. You would need to pull the PTO out to check that. DON'T try the suggestion of dropping the front wheels into a hole to save draining the oil, all this will do is fill the Clutch Housing with oil if the oil seal is worn, it is OK if the seal is good but not when it is worn. You can pull the PTO shaft out without too much trouble, just four bolts and pull it out after draining the oil. Being that the pin in the ORC has broken, that is a clue that the pin was overloaded and that is why it broke and the cause could be that the PTO shaft on the Hog is tight, you should clean this anyway and make sure that it slides easily. If the Hog has been lifting too high then the PTO shaft will be bent. If the shaft was tight like it seems to have been, it could be the ORC has pulled apart as well. You will need to look closely at it. Because you didn't have anything on the PTO when you tried it after replacing the Pin it is quite possible that it would turn without any load on it, when you fitted the Hog again, that would prevent it turning. Now I have the information about your tractor and the type of Bush Hog you have I can now send you the information that I mentioned a couple of days ago....John(UK)...firstname.lastname@example.org
