Split a Tractor???

He said he had to split the tractor to fix the PTO.     I had no idea what he meant by that.     It has taken him days to get to this point.    Now I can see why.     The reason for the split was the pin that was broken as shown in the second picture.     Guess this wouldn't be a problem if we had "newer" tractors, but we don't.

 You can see the jacks and the plates he is using to hold up the front of the tractor.    Another jack holds up the back part.    What skills this man has!!
Now we can use this tractor to run the silo filler to put our corn in the silo to help feed the cows we have left.    (Don't call this a hobby farm)

That is a huge job for a little pin, glad you have someone that knows what the problem is/was.
