Can you get a Speedi-Sleeve the right size? install with Loctite retaining compound and there is no need for machining.

Was not aware of speedi-sleeves--I will look into it. Really appreciate this--made my day.

Update: Was able to install speedi-sleeve and continue work on unit. Everything is loose and spins were very and with ease. Have put everything back together and install a slip clutch that I previously had. Now I'm needing to shorten pto shaft for implement and tractor and of course ran into a problem. Measured what shaft needed to be and cut outer tubing for pto---hollow tube. The shaft to the tractor is a square bar which fits into a square sleeve that appears to have been welded to the hollow tube. Rookie needs help. Believe solid square piece needs to be welded to cut round shaft--guidance. Did search and could not find answers needed--thanks

Update: Was able to connect to tractor (45 hp) and try it out. Outcome with rotavator-very good. Turned like a champ and all seals gaskets were leak proof. Tractor might be a little weak for this size rotavator. Need to purchase a new pto shaft however but that's another thread. Thanks to everyone for their help and guidance.

Unless you go shallow and slow (multiple passes) you will most definitely need more ponies in front of that baby. I had one like it 45 years ago and it was, in reality, too much implement for our 60 hp diesel; 70 - 80 hp would have been a better bet.
