When purchased the adjustable lift arm, right side, along with a PTO Shaft cover. I won't fit, way too small. I thought maybe I was not putting in on correctly so I just let it go. My previous occupation involved cranes and hoists. The PTO shaft has me a bit freaked out, if it get a hold of you, it's gonna be bad. Anyway, while changing the fluids out. I cleaned the collar and shaft, then retried the cover, bummer, nope. The collar is a different color, a fairly decent amount of gray paint unlike the rest of the differential. It looks like a replacement, no threads for a cover at all. Maybe I can make a hinged box or something to cover it up. Thoughts?

Is your pto an 1 1/8" or 1 3/8"? If it has an 1 3/8" pto it could very well be an aftermarket piece and you would have to find one that matches it, or it may not have ever been threaded for one since I would say at least 80% if not more are ran without their cover on the pto.

This problem has come up before , absence of threads for the pto cover on the collar is usually caused by an implement drive shaft coupling wearing them away.

that is what happen to mine, 1957 TO-35,

my old bush hog pto shaft worked loose and rode up the tractor pto shaft and ruined the threads on the housing.

lucky for me it did not come off

but I have never been able to get the pto safety cap to screw back on, its been that way for years and has not been a problem.

on the to-35 you do not have to keep the pto turning when you are using the lift.

if I had to keep the pto turning all the time, it might be more of a safety problem.

Thanks for the responses. How is the shaft measured, across the top of the splines? For safety I want to put something over it when not use the shaft. It's to easy to be doing something and forget it's turning.

When you say way to small if you mean it hits the shaft before it screws in, you have the wrong cap.Ford used a short cap about 3" long Ferguson used one about 5"long. If it's thread diameter you got me I dunno.
