New PTO input shaft came today, should have time to put it in tomorrow. Since I've never done a rear split before, should I put the gasket in dry, or with a little non-hardening Permatex?

I like the aerosol Hi Tack for gaskets like that when mating surfaces are clean and flawless. Used on one side it does a nice job of keeping a gasket in place.

Dry is fine as long as the mating surfaces are clean.

The way the old gasket came off, that's what I was kinda thinking, but I figured it was best to ask. I appreciate all the experience and knowledge that's shared here.

Make sure you get the bolts real tight when you reassemble it. If you don't, they sections will actually twist, then tear the gasket. We got a lot of new ones that did it. Became standard procedure to tighten everyone that came through the door.

There are torque values in the manual... they will be followed.

There's no way it can twist with the dowels in place - are you sure you are talking about Fords here? I've never seen a Ford tractor come loose at that joint and do what you describe. A person would have to intentionally take the dowels out in order for that to happen.

What new model Ford tractors did you feel it necessary to do that to?

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1964 JD 2010 Dsl - Part 2 - by Jim Nielsen. Despite having to disassemble the majority of my John Deere 2010's diesel engine, I was still hopeful I could leave the engine-complete with crankshaft and camshaft-in the tractor. This would make the whole engine rebuild job much easier-and much less expensive! I soon found however, that the #4 conrod bearing had disintegrated, taking with it chunks of the crankshaft journal. As a resul ... [Read Article]
