Had trouble auto connecting to my 60" deck today and found the pto coupler pointed about 45 degrees up. Couldn't figure out why and then decided to disassemble the whole thing and found the pto shaft only is moving a little over an inch out of the shaft. No way it will ever drop enough with that little play. Seems like the top of the shaft has some peening preventing it from moving further out.
Will take to dealer tomorrow but was wondering if anyone else had this issue and if its an easy "fix" or if they should just replace the whole thing
