I recently picked up a 1994 445. I will post more about that experience later. I want to add the rear PTO kit to run a tiller (a 647 or 450). What is the right PTO kit # for the 1994 model? I have seen BM17329 and BM18415 kits, but can't find solid info on which is the right part # for my year model.

I know the kits are not made any longer, any ideas where I can find one other than eBay?

Thanks in advance for the help...

BM18415 is direct fit for tractors with the following serial numbers (these tractors have the PTO leads incorporated into the main wiring harness):
425 A032777 and above
425 B031423 and above
445 C031362 and above
455 A030005 and above
455 B030101 and above
455 C031478 and above
455 D030385 and above
455 E030001 and above

Thanks Cobra. Since the BM18415 kit is for the serial numbers above mine, I assume the BM17329 kit is for the lower serial numbers, which mine is.

Still would like confirmation if anyone knows before I pluck down a lot of $$$ on a 17329 kit.

Another question, does the rear pto kit come with a male spline or female spline? Might that vary between the BM18415 and BM17329 kit?

Still looking for confirmation of the proper rear PTO kit # for a 1994 445 if anyone can confirm for me. Because the kit is obsolete the few dealers I called were not even able to find it in their system to confirm for me. Thanks.

I think I ran across one for sale, used. If you are interested I can give you more details, I think the guy wanted $500 for it. I thought I would buy it, but it wont work on my 430, I thing my tractor is a generation too old for that style of rear pto.
