    Drive shaft tip

    Are people gluing that plastic cap onto the tip of the drive shaft so you don't have to dig it out of the motor??

    If you have to dig it out of the PTO... it broke

    It came out in piece... snaps on the drive shaft just fine...

    My shaft keeps getting hung up on the bearing that sits just before the PTO and I think the tugging and pulling takes the plastic cap off...

    I got it out by putting the drive shaft back in and snapping it on...

    It is typical for the rubber cap to come off. Be very careful when diging that cap out that you do not break the any of the fingers off the stop sleeve - part # 9 in the pic. Otherwise you have to take part # 10 out to put a new one in and from personal experience it is definately no treat to do. This is for something else but I show how to take the shaft out and deal with the bearing off the back of the PTO. http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=104020

    Thanks gus! Great info!!!

    My bearing slides out of the black boot .... Should I replace the oem clamp with a worm drive that will hold this bearing in it's place?

    Also,, stil want to know if I can silicone that cap on the shaft so it never comes off???

    How many hours are on it? What does the condition look like?
    Some have used the OEM clamp and others have used a worm clamp and have been ok.
    Personally I wouldnt glue it on, but I dont see why you couldnt.
