I have been looking around for info on the possibility of retro fitting a pto shaft to my MH745s, once I get it to run ofcourse.
I understand that it was a factory option, and after some advice I removed the top link connection plate picture 1 and 2.


Top centre of picture 3 I can see a drive shaft that appears to be the intended connection point.

Can anyone suggest where I might beable to buy the shaft and end plate that I need.
I am in Australia, North Queensland and their are no tractor wreckers in my region.

Sure looks like a 30, 33, or 44 pto would fit. Must be lots of those in Austrailia.

Thanks to a couple of very informative tractor enthusiasts, I got my answer, and even a possible source for the parts.

I'll ask the obvious question:

Where does the top link go if there is a PTO fitted? Was it supposed to be mounted on the rockshaft housing?

Yes it goes up to where the 4 mud filled threaded holes are above it in the picture. I hope

A huge thank you to Alan Blaik. He provided me with the complete PTO shaft for my 745s and the advice on fitting it.

Now I have another question, what size are the threaded holes that I must move my TopLink connection to? I thought that they would be the same size as the PTO cover, but that does not seem to be the case, or is this just years of corrosion?
Tried all 4 bolts in each threaded hole. No starters.

Got it, tapped out the rust and mud, then fitted the top link point.
