What is the name official name of the part that the drive shaft comes into from the motor? It runs the pto of one side and the drive belts off the other. And does anyone have one for a 712S. mine is locked tight.

Usually they don't lock up but become noisy and if not repaired can chew up the case at the input shaft when the needle bearing fails.

That said, if the bolt/washer holding the gear to the input shaft comes loose, I would imagine it could jam the gears.

There are many repair threads for the BGB, this being one of the best:

My advice is to open it up and see what the problem is. If it requires gears or shaft(s), it's usually cost effective to buy a used one. Most would replace the bearings and seals before installing it, but it depends on the shape it's in and $$ available.

To be sure it's not something else, take all the belts off (pto and transmission drive), but yes, you should be able to spin the gearbox by hand, either from the front or either side.

sent you mail.

What about the shuttle don't you like? I love it, well did anyhow. I got rid of 6 of my 7 Cub cadets because I like these Allis much better. the shuttle worked great for plowing as it goes fast in reverse.

If its in a very cold climate it can freeze up if water gets in thru the vent hole (common on some). if it thaws then change the gear oil asap and fix the vent cap...if its not frozen then back to the other plans...:(
