If the TW pto setup was like our 9600, I think the output shaft comes right out after removing a snap ring. I can remember breaking our pto shaft, although I don't recall just how, and I'm pretty sure my dad swapped out the 540 with a 1000 shaft until the new 540 came in. There might be some other mods needed, but I don't know. Been too long...

Yes shafts are held in place by a snap ring ..easy change...The TW's are fantastic tractors i've had 10's-15's-20's and 25's some of them up in the 10'000hr mark which were very reliable and good performers...Only problems i've ever had are leaky PTO seals , A few powersteering pumps and some issues with blowing o-rings in the valve chest...The engines are beauties and the tranny if an aquired art to shift are as good as any mechanically .
Which cab are you looking at the superQ with the flat roof or the old bubble top..The later super Q's were a little more prone to rusting under the windsheild and in the doors around the window seals and around mirror mounts so look out for fresh paint.
One annoying thing is the huge diameter engine oil filter that costs $30 genuine and is not a common filter for aftermarket to stock..
Generally TW's are ..

I want to do the same on my County. Will I have to drop the oil out? I have heard that you can park some tractors on a steep hill to change the shaft?

I'm pretty sure we did NOT drain the oil, and that there was little, if any, loss.

Unless the front is up in the air oil loss is no more than a trickle..!We change them a couple of times a day when busy and usually takes seconds although you get the odd time you have to do some turning to find the right spline..!

Hi. Me again. I can't get the shaft to come out. It moves about 1/8th of an inch with the snap ring in or out.Should I put some pressure on it with a puller? I suspect it may be rusted in the bearing. Any Ideas?

I finally managed to get it out. I put an adapter on the end of the shaft and made a puller that fitted behind it. Then I used my Port-a power to pull it out. It was tight in the splines so now I can get the 540 shaft.
