I posted a last week that I had ordered a PTO shaft from YT to replace a twisted one on my Ford 960. The part came yesterday. There are a couple of things that I wanted to check on before I try to put it into the tractor. First, the bushing (is that the right term for the bulkier part that seals tight where the PTO emerges from the tractor?) is quite a bit shorter than the original design, and secondly, the rough surface shown in the picture below. I assume that since that isn't turning, it shouldn't make a big difference, but could it increase the chances of oil leakage?
I really want to get the new piece in and see if it works and the 960 can get back up and running, but thought I'd do a quick check here first to make sure everything looks compatible. Thanks!

One of mine came with a shaft that protrudes less than original. It has been a minor problem when using my Kuhn tedder, but nothing else.

Sorry for the blurry picture... it was nice and sharp on the computer... let's try a little higher resolution.

We had to replace a shaft in a 640 once, it looked different than original one. Sorta like yours do. It worked fine.

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]
