    removing the PTO coupling

    According to the manual it is only tightened to 184 ft-lbs, and has anti sieze on the threads. No notation for thread direction. I locked the crank and Tried my best, that that thing isn't moving. Anyone have any pointers? Is is reverse threads?

    thanks

    I could try heat, but since the mag cover is still on, alot of oil would get burned.

    FYI, it took heat, a sturdy base, and a long ass breaker bar. Book calls for anti seize and 180ish ft lbs. This thing had about a gallon of loctite on it

    Is there a part number for that "long ass breaker bar"?

    Why do you want to take it off? Almost nobody does this as there is rarely a good reason. If your crank is bad and coupler good, most people just buy a good used crank, which will always have the PTO coupler attached.
