Sherman Power Digger on old Ford front pump problem

I have a backhoe model 1168 power digger on a Ford tractor and the front shaft to the pump has slid forward and stripped the teeth. Is there any kind of manual or website with exploded views to help with repair?
Not sure what happened but was a cold morning, snow on the ground, and was gonna use to help drag some of my junk I was delivering away from the road as it was too muddy to try and bring a rollback in there and the shaft just slipped forward and started grinding metal.

I'll get around to pulling it out when I can but must be some sort of retaining clip that failed and a parts guide might give me some clues. I think it's a 641 tractor, I got #29NN6015B from the right side of the engine and #310835 from the right side of transmission.

There is a dash plate with a # on it and I guess the original owner etc. I need the shaft fixed and a breather tube and she will be ready to work. At least for my little place not full-time construction. A little slop in the bushings so I need to fix them too. Solid little tractor though. Any help is certainly appreciated.

If you are speaking about the engine crankshaft pulley to pump shaft and connecting hardware/coupler, its been discussed here. I have to believe its a common part, but in a quick search was not able to find a shaft, but I did find what I believe to be the front coupler off the crankshaft pulley. Going from memory on mine, you have that, the shaft that passes through the front axle pivot pin to another flange or coupler with 4 bolts, then to the pump input shaft. Once apart you should be able to determine what was damaged. When that pivot pin is worn and has excessive play, when using the loader to raise the front end, it will rub, mine does on an 850, and its quite worn. I looked at Lovejoy, and Surplus center websites, briefly, did not find a shaft or anything related, but wait for others to comment, someone will know a bit more, and more research might turn something up, drawing a blank on where to source that splined shaft.

Found a shaft on this site, and other listings, do a parts search it might turn up, but I don't know if there is standard length or what differences there are with all the different loaders, pumps etc, I would believe in general terms this is the shaft that stripped on yours, or one like it.

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
