I have an Model MF65 and I would like to know what to do to replace the seal on the power take off shaft. Do I have to take the rear end completly off?
Welcome to JA!
It is easy to replace the oil seal on the pto. To save removing the transmission oil I would suggest backing the tractor up some ramps or a slope so the oil runs to the front. There is a plate with bolts in it to remove from the back of the pto. If you then screw on the pto cap (if you have one) and pull it, it should pull out the boss in which the seal sits in, whilst leaving the actual pto shaft in place. Lever out the seal and carefully replace with a new one. Always change the outer o’ring and clean and lubricate all surfaces before carefully refitting, turning the pto shaft whilst refitting.
If you haven’t got a pto cap to use then you can pull the whole pto shaft out sufficiently to then be able to recover the boss.

Their are 4 bolts on the back ,around the power take off shaft.. Are thes bolts the only parts I have to remove in order to pull the shaft out and replace the seal?
Yes thats all that you will have to unbolt is the 4 bolts, If you have a cap to screw on ,Screw the cap on,, Pull on the cap , The housing will come off, just replace the seal and gasket between the pto housing and tractor,
OK. Thank You. You have been very helpfull.
have a great day! RD
