Hello,
Apoligize if this is in the wrong place this is my 1st time posting. I own a Ford 951 brushhog mower and I used it for a year with no problems. This fall I hit a large anthill mound and the mower lost power but the shaft was still spinning. There is the square shaft that attaches to the pto on the tractor that slides into a rounded shaft. When I pulled off the plastic guard I noticed the rounded shaft was split in two.
It looks like its manufactured this way but I don'
t see where to put a sheer pin or how to get the two pieces back together. Does anyone know how I can get the two round metal pieces back together and secure so they can turn the mower again. Thank you

My guess is ...someone shortened the Drive shaft and that weld failed.

Typical.....The only way to adjust Driveline length to match tractor is to cut and reweld that particular piece. New drivelines don't have this issue as the "mateing" parts run the full length of DL. This type of older driveline only has that short section that "mates".......so its a cut and reweld to change length.

Be sure and "clock" the u joints before welding this back together.
As in.....make the yokes on both ends be "LIKE"....each other.
< matching twins ,the same direction....etc......someone else can describe this better I am sure..this is not my strong point on the keyboard.
