    Go ahead and have a laugh!

    thought I`d share this bizarre PTO removal technique...

    These dam PTO flywheels were so dam tight I was lifting the engines and my weight trying to crack them loose...
    So I used a perforated heavy wall square tube, did what I needed to do to tie them both together for stabilty...
    Used the big mamma jamma breaker bar with a pipe and Boom, they both came off...

    yeah, yeah go ahead and laugh! I did!!!

    You just have to be smarter and of course stronger than the machine. You are the man

    Where's the 4ft rigid pipe that goes over the breaker bar ?


    You have to do whatever works and that worked.

    The end result is what matters. And that seemed to work just fine.

    I dont expect to see any duct tape or bailing wire going in the Doo any time soon.
