    Fixing some issues, insight needed please!

    So doing the full round of spring maintenance today at 800 hours on my 1026, I ran into some issues.

    First is, I was going to replace a ripped rubber boot that's over the front drive shaft connection. There's a snap ring, decent sized one. I broke my apparently cheap snap ring pliers, and I'm not even sure they were going to be able to open wide enough to get it off. So am I correct that I need to remove this snap ring, then I can slide the shaft back and slide on my new boot? Any snap ring pliers purchase advice that are decent quality and can actually open enough for this?

    Secondly, the allen head bolt is a pain to remove to get the magnet screen out. Especially with my backhoe subframe. The issue is having your tiny little allen wrench stay in the shallow hole, enough leverage, etc etc. I ended up just clamping vise grips down really hard and turning it that way. Pretty sure I stripped the allen into a nice circle too while trying.

    Lastly while removing the hydraulic filter I noticed something broken on my mid mount pto bracket thingy. I've attached a pic. How crucial/serious do you think this is?

    Thanks

    Last first. That is not good. May need to see if it can be welded. I would imagine the tab is lost. Vice grips may help with the Allen screw. Can't remember problem 1.

    Yes, you'll definitely want to address that PTO shaft carrier bearing flange before you utilize it again. Others have reported their PTO shafts coming apart, flopping around, hitting the transaxle spin-on filter and sheering it off. The filter nipples is part of the transaxle housing. Definitely a big buck repair. It is way too much of a risk to chance.

    What they said. I wouldn’t turn it back on til fixed. If it comes loose while running, you are looking at big problems.

    Yeah - spinning drive shafts can cause havok quickly when they come loose.......

    Any snap ring plier suggestions for taking off these pretty large snap rings?

    It looks like when I replace that, I just need to remove that snap ring and take off the three bolts and it will come loose?

    Looks like part AM143641, $50, just ordered it.

    Edit: Just bought these snap ring pliers, sounds like they should be big enough and awesome quality: https://www.amazon.com/4921A31-Exter...dp/B0002YYMDU/

    You did the right thing in replacing the broken PTO shaft carrier bearing flange. Make sure you get the deck and PTO carrier set up properly. When set up and done properly the mower deck should go on like butter.

    Snap on ring pliers are the way to go. I got a 7pc set on ebay for 150 bucks. I know there expensive, but they are so worth it.

    I'll get a picture of the pliers later.

    If you don't need a whole set, get the snap-on SRPC 7000. They are a good all-around size, being that they have a .7mm tip size. The ring in the picture required the SRPC 9090, with a .9mm tip. They also make them in 45 degree (SRPC 7045) and 90 degree versions (SRPC 7090)

    Those look to be for internal rings only. While high quality, they won't work very well- if at all. You need either a reversible set or some for external rings.

    You might look again, the pliers are for external snap rings.
