Today was maintenance day on the 960 and 640. New fluids, oil changes. Check plugs, points gaps. And on 960 fix leaking pto shaft. Easy enough but found this when we pulled shaft. What ya reckon it is? Don't look like a new break. I dunno.

Just a guess, but it looks like the left ring is cast iron, and considering where you found it, there may have been an improper assembly or just a bad bearing in the past, which caused the bearing to lock up and turn in the housing, and caused the housing to wear until that ring was cut free. If this is the case you will need a new center housing. They are not hard to find and should be inexpensive.

Oddly the pto shaft doesn't have any play in it. You can bushhog for hours no issues. I'm hoping it's an old piece from somewhere in last 60 years. We inspected everything, all looked good.
