my pto went on me on my YTH1542. I found the same model # pto on ebay and purchased it. They are exactly the same except for the new one came with a sleeve attached to the clutch. Is there anyway to take that sleeve off, because it wont fit w/ it on. In the pic the one on the right is the one that came off the tractor... Thanks, Matt
It looks to me like your old clutch has the shaft bearing out of it . I had this problem and finaly realized that the sleave was still on my crank shaft:banghead3. If that makes sence. What I am trying to say is you dont have all the clutch ***. off the crank shaft yet. Hope this helps. Let us know what you find out !!!
