Hey all,
I got a to30 two years ago and it ran and worked without flaw. It pulled a float in the peanut parade last year and earned hushed, but modest approval from the crowd. I can do better! Getting a little paint and tune up for the parade in two days. I noticed the hydraulic oil was low and milky, also a leak at the pto shaft out put. I picked up a new gasket and bearing and some gl1. Pto is disengaged, tranny in neutral, shaft spins by hand, retaining plate unbolted. I canít pull the pto shaft out past an inch or so. Should I force it? Any thoughts?
Thanks for the great site,

Give it a tug. You might get lucky. If not, chances are you have a twisted shaft. That entails a sawing of the shaft to remove it. You might also have to drop the pump to get the other end out. Plus rinsing out the metal shavings. .. .
I changed out my PTO shaft seal without losing but about three drops of oil. I parked the nose in a ditch about two feet down.
However with milky fluid you have no choice.

If you got bolts-- retainer ring off then take large channel locks and turn housing and pull out. It has two places on retainer where ring fits is where I clamp. It has a O ring around housing (inside)that sticks and when you turn it comes loose.Keep turning and pull at same time. Drain oil since it has water in it.You need a seal to stop leak.

For clarity; when you say housing you mean the bearing housing?. And you think that the o-ring is whatís catching? I Ďll run with that. I donít think the shaft is bent, everything works great otherwise. Just preventative maintenance( breaking what was fixed).
