Now it is time to tackle the PTO.
After some false starts I settled on this as the foundation
if you notice there are two pulleys that are clutched.
I thought that it would be nice and handy to have a separate mechanical pto and a hydraulic pto that can be used together or separately.
Now to make it work:
the first step was to cut 2 keyways at 180 degrees to each other so the so drive gear is anchored sorry for the poor picture but this is the setup
this is the result
next step was to mount the shives here I made up a fixture to line them up
here is the fixture lined up ready to weld - I cut one of the alignment pieces too much so I used shim stock to make up the differance
here is the completed assembly
Now to mount the assembly I had to extend the front by 12 inches
the lower shive is not lined up yet.
now to put a quick connect and disconnect on the front of the lower shaft
again I used the mill and rotary table and used 6 keys in hindsite maybe I should have cut the splines onto the shaft but I didn't
and the final result which worked out very well
