I have the cover off and the 3 bolts out, Ive pryed on to the point of being afraid of breaking something. It has came out about 1/8or so. Is there something I missed or do they come out that hard? On my 88, once I got it started, it slid right out. I cant budge this one.

Take Randy's advice. I thought the same thing. A pry bar will do it. Once it pops it comes out easy.

I've had to use a bar to pop them out. Put a tire iron behind the clutch pack and pry against the housing.

   The bearing that supports the long shaft is part way into the Trans / Diff. housing (bearing that the cap that you took the three 3/8 bolts out of).   The housings are not aligned, PTO has shifted from use.   Loosen the four 1/2 bolts that hold the PTO housing to the Trans. / Diff. housing and tap the PTO housing around & shaft will come out.

   Install the long shaft & bearing before tightening the four 1/2 bolts when reassembling.

If I take the 4 bolts loose to get it out, do I need to replace the gasket behind it since it was loosened??

It should not be hard to remove the shaft, maybe the shaft is gaulded to the bearing in the PTO housing? I had a 77 that did that and I had to remove the PTO gear box.

Today's Featured Article - Fasteners: The Nuts and Bolts of Nuts and Bolts - by Curtis Von Fange. The nuts and bolts of nuts and bolts is an interesting and essential piece of knowledge that applies to our older tractors. An improperly torqued capscrew on an engine head or a shear bolt that is too hard on the driving shaft of a bushog can create havoc and make an expensive and uncalled for repair. Letís examine the purpose and design of these fasteners in order to ensure their proper use. Fasteners are probably one of the aspects of mechanics that is given the least amount of thought. ...
