Does anyone know how to remove the short driveshaft from the u-joint.

Is the driveshaft held onto the u-joint by anything or does it just slip in?

Any help is always appreciated.

Thanks

Mike

They are not removeable.

Thanks for the diagram. The driveshaft I'm talking about is the short peice that attaches to the engine flywheel at the far right of your diagram. Is that not meant to come apart from the u-joint.

Thanks

Mike, it looks like it should slide off. I don't see any pin. Could be a pressed fit, but I've never worked. On one.

Mine definitely won't slide off. There is alot of rust and corrosion on it. I don't want to hit it too hard and damage something else.

Thanks

Mike,
Picture on JD site shows it to have a half moon key in it so I'm pretty sure it is just soundly rusted on the PTO shaft. I would spray some PB Blaster in it, then let is set for a day or two. Then apply some heat to the outside and see it it will break loose. And the part shows on the JD parts site at a cost of $340.00, so yes you don't want to break it. If you do though, PM me! I have a machinist that lives down the street that made me a spacer that looks similar!

The drive shaft is roll pinned at the transmission and press fit at the engine with a key. The u joints are not removable. You can remove the drive shaft from the engine by unbolting it from the flywheel. Then you can then use the PB Blaster, heat, and a BFH like I did. Be patient though you don't want to break anything.

Adamjd, much better than the exploded diagram! That should help him considerably!
