Hello forum members, long time viewer first time poster here. I was changing my trans and hydraulic fluid in my tractor, and while I was at it I took the inspection plate off of the left side of the rear end housing. The PTO had jumped out of gear on me two times this year while bush hogging. I wanted to get a look at the dog clutch on the PTO shaft. The splines on both halves looked like new so I m hoping it s just the detent, anyway to the point. While I was in there I noticed there were six mounting bolt holes in the pinion carrier, and two pulling holes, however the top and bottom mounting bolts were missing. There is not a mark one on the carrier, so I believe they were never there even though there feels to be threaded holes there. Is this normal?

Your probably right Bern. I guess some of this stuff will always be a mystery and up for speculation, anyway thanks for the replies.

Thanks for the reply Bern. I was hoping those others weren t rattling around loose in there. Since posting I noticed other pics on internet with those same bolts missing, any idea why Ford would make provisions for those bolts and not use them?

This is pure speculation on my part, but I would assume it's the way for engineers to be able to easily step up power levels within an existing housing, thinking ahead to future needs. Either that, or they designed it with 6 from the start, and then some other engineer/bean counter decided that it only needed 4 and that they could save money and time by leaving 2 out.

Yes, I've seen that before. If the other 4 haven't come loose by now, they never will. A 3600 doesn't generate enough torque to even remotely stress those bolts.

Today's Featured Article - Antique Tractor Wiring Basics - by Curtis von Fange. One of the most neglected parts of old tractors is the wiring. After sitting in the elements for half a century or more much equipment wiring has deteriorated to sparsely covered strands of copper or other metal. Plastic insulation has cracked, mice have eaten through the older clothed style coverings and the exposed wires have reacted to winter moisture and salts by turning blue and powdery. Terminal ends have corroded, rusted or just plain evaporated away. Aged wires not only keep an engin ... [Read Article]
