Hi, I have a question about the PTO shaft itself. I will do my best to identify what I am talking about, however if I don't use the right wording I apologize now...OK, the PTO shaft on my tractor has a worn v-shape groove in it where it goes thru a very heavy metal bracket that is attached to the bottom of the drawbar Platform. Now my question about the PTO shaft, is it suppose to have this v-groove, or is it suppose to be solid. The Bolts that hold the drawbar Platform have been snapped off at some time, so the front bolts were holding the platform and I know it was hanging down at an angle, and I suspect that is how the v-groove was created, but I wanted to make sure before drawing some conclusion, so please let me know, if the shaft is solid, or if it suppose to have this v-groove.
Thank You very much,
