Front PTO shaft -pix's added

Recommended Posts

Nubian
After sitting over a year I started my D/A Ultima and activated the clutch, there is a LOUD noise coming from what seems to be the front pto shaft, in looking at my parts manual I see that there are two bearings front and rear of shaft (ref. #5). Since there are no grease fittings I am thinking that is where the noise is coming from. Has anyone ever had to replace these? How often do they go bad?

Are you sure it is the PTO shaft and not the clutch itself? I would take the belts off and try the clutch by itself and turn the PTO shaft by hand to see if the #5 bearing is the issue. My clutch bearings just went last weekend. I am expecting the new clutch from Al today.

I have engaged the clutch by itself,but that noise only materializes when the belts engage the pto shaft. I have turned the pto shaft by itself and noticed some resistance and a slight grinding noise. As for the clutch the field unit is brand new all the other parts rotate freely and is gapped at .018, there is a slight metal grinding noise when the clutch is first engaged but it quickly disappears is this normal? Also the spacer part #11 how tight should it be against the armature? And what purpose does it serve? The clutch seems to operate the same without it on.

Sounds like you have isolated it to the PTO bearing. My clutch also made the grinding noise as it engaged and was very short duration. Hope it is normal. Not sure of the torq spec or purpose of spacer #11.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
