PTO Shaft on 1936 WC

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,
Scott Des Moines, Iowa

Scott You should have no groves in your shaft. The object you are referring to is a pillow block bearing assembly. If your shaft is groved inside of this assembly your bearings have run dry and galled up the shaft. Or your mount was loose and didn't let your shaft run true "straight" If I am understanding your post correctly.

Thanks Jeff, You understood my post correctly and thats what I needed to know. I will just fix the problem with the assembly and weld new metal into the shaft where it is grooved, and smooth it back out. I had to do the same thing for my John Deere B where the steering shaft goes thru the support yoke, can't even tell new metal was added when it was all done.

Thanks again Jeff,
Des Moines, Iowa
