In the spring I put a 16 hp K341 in this tractor. I torqued all of the bolts and had lockwashers on them. Saturday I found that the drive shaft was loose as well as the flywheel. I found the key sheared off, but the keyway was undamaged. I replaced the key, got a NEW lock nut and Locktight. I applied locktight to the tapered shaft and all of the bolt threads, I hope this hold for a while. Bob

My guess is that it was just not tightened enough. Its a pain but fix it and get it going again. Like ardisam said, the torque is not that much so I am not sure you would need locktight. Could it be that the flywheel nut is a single use like on the cone clutch?
