good morning Bob my name is ***** ***** the 540 shaft spin at all?
and we are talking about a compact utility right?
ah ok glad i checked. so the 540 speed is completely dead?
the issue is for sure internal. i would start by draining the oil and removing the six bolts holding the back quill assembly on. that way you can get a light up in there and see what is or is not moving. i have found a few that shelled out the needle bearings and let the gears drop out of place.
older..... i dont know as much about the compacts
sorry the 6 bolts were the 4020's
same idea, get that rear cover off so you can see up inside there
when you remove the stub shaft is the center pin pushed out? or stuck in
im sure you know this but when you install the 540 shaft the pin pushes in to shift the collar onto the 540 gear vs the 1000 shaft allowing the pin to move rearward and releasing the collar. so im wondering if your pin is broke or stuck. or... the collar that slides over the 540 has stripped out
well.... there is only so far you can move that pin. I think in your case its time to remove the rockshaft housing and have a look down in there to see if there is anything left of that shift collar
yes you can see a good majority of it from there and yes it would be a double split
power shift or syncro smash transmission?
1st split is clutch to engine housing
second is clutch housing to trans, that is where you need to be. if your patient and have a good solid surface you can do it in a single split
do not have to drain oil to remove rockshaft. disconnect linkages and remove bolts. lift off with a picker
the rockshaft housing would be the assembly under the seat. you can try to remove the components from the pto housing in the rear of the tractor but i dont think you are going to see all that needs to be viewed. either way that rear section will need to come apart so start there
