Some of these things are a real puzzle to remove as was the case today with an older Eurocardan (sp?) PTO shaft. :banghead:
After an hour of digging grease & dirt off, prying & twisting I spy this tiny symbol suggesting inserting a screwdriver and turning counter clockwise on the cover over the u-joint. At last, I found the secret:yahoo: but :unknown: still cant twist the cover to unlock it from the tube. Much more brake cleaner and prying I noticed that little thing I turned with the screwdriver was working itself out so I pushed it on out with a small screwdriver........IT'S A PIN that locks the collar from rotating.:yahoo:
BTW they are pretty proud of that plastic contraption $$$.
The new PTO cover arrived today from Land Pride and it is obvious Eurocardan let the engineer go:nunu: that designed the last cover.
So much easier to install on the shaft now.:good2:
Thanks everyone who got involved with this helpful thread.:bigthumb: Without it I would have resorted to a hacksaw on the old one.
