Last year, I had the dealer install a 47" quick hitch snow blower on my new 1025r. In the spring, I took off the blower with the quick hitch attached, took off the PTO and the front mounting bracket that holds it. Kept everything together. Yesterday, I reassembled it. When I tried to connect the PTO (rear, not mid) to the snow blower driveshaft it was about 1 1/2" too short. Help! 12-16" of snow expected today and tonight. What did I do wrong? Have been searching online for good pictures of how the assembly should look in case I'm putting something on upside down or backwards, but haven't found any. Everything looks logical. Disassembled and reassembled three times and nothing changed, still 1 1/2" too short . Then I thought about what Einstein said, "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
