The rear PTO for my H16XL came with the sheave all bent and messed up. Sam bolens doesn't have any of these and says they are no longer available.

Has anyone found a way to retrofit these with some generic sheave? Do I just need to pound out the pin to get the sheave off?

Keep an eye out for one that somebody is parting out on ebay, those happen from time to time. I can't help you with the dissasembley, but I can point you in the direction of the parts manual, if you don't already have it. Here's a link: http://sonnysbolens.com/manuals/xlseries.htm

If that is a steel sheave and it's not totally trashed I have saved them by filing them as close as possible and filling the low spots with brass rod. Replacement is easier and quicker generally but sometimes parts are hard to come by.

Thanks guys. I got the tractor up and running today and removed the mower deck. Am now ready to get the tiller running. I think I will try to get the sheave off and pound it into submission.
