Weasler 55 Series PTO Shaft Parts


The PTO shaft plays a vital role in transmitting power from the tractor to the attached implement. Components of a PTO shaft include inner and outer PTO yokes, universal joints, safety chains, and safety guards. There are several different types of PTO shafts to choose from, so it is imperative to choose the right 1 for your equipment and application.

Ever-power offers 3 different types of PTO shafts: North American, German, and Italian. Each style includes multiple series options, including a variety of bearing diameters, overall cover-to-cover lengths, and snap rings. The most accurate way to determine the correct series is to measure the outside diameter of the bearing cap and the U-joint from 1 end of the cap to the other. The position of the snap ring is another determining factor.

How to Measure PTO Shaft Parts?

Correctly measuring shaft parts is critical to selecting the correct PTO series size. Each piece needs to be measured in a specific way to fit the standard size. Follow the steps below to ensure you get the correct measurements and order parts for your tractor.

1. Measuring the shaft

To measure your shaft, you should first make sure it is in the closed position when the shaft is smallest. Use a tape measure to record the length from the outside of each yoke. This measurement is the closed length. Use this measurement to find the correct series size for your tractor horsepower.

Make sure you also know if you have shear pins, clutches or splined implement ends.

2. Measure the universal joint

When measuring a universal joint, measure the length from 1 outer end to the other. You will also need to record the width of 1 end of the universal joint. Use these numbers to find the proper gimbal size.

3. Put them all together

You will need both of the measurements listed above to find a PTO shaft part that works well for your tractor. You can use the PTO Yoke Size Chart to get the right size or use our handy PTO Series Discovery Tool.

PTO Shaft for Agricultural Gearbox

Agricultural equipment includes a variety of PTO shafts. Each 1 is connected by yokes at each end and rotates between 540 and 1,000 rpm. A safety shield is commonly installed on both ends of a PTO shaft to protect the operator. These protective shields are also found in tractors and agricultural implements, ensuring maximum efficiency. The use of internal yokes also provides added safety.

The agricultural gearbox is designed to change the output speed of a PTO shaft. It can be used as a decreasing or increasing ratio gearbox. With the decrease ratio gearbox, it reduces the PTO shaft’s speed from 1000 rpm to 540 rpm, allowing you to use equipment designed for 540 rpm. On the other hand, an increasing ratio gearbox increases the speed of the PTO shaft from 540 rpm to 1000 rpm.

What is a driveshaft and how much does it cost to replace 1?

Your vehicle is made up of many moving parts. Knowing each part is important because a damaged driveshaft can seriously damage other parts of the car. You may not know how important your driveshaft is, but it’s important to know if you want to fix your car. In this article, we’ll discuss what a driveshaft is, what its symptoms are, and how much it costs to replace a driveshaft.

Repair damaged driveshafts

A damaged driveshaft does not allow you to turn the wheels freely. It also exposes your vehicle to higher repair costs due to damaged driveshafts. If the drive shaft breaks while the car is in motion, it may cause a crash. Also, it can significantly affect the performance of the car. If you don’t fix the problem right away, you could risk more expensive repairs. If you suspect that the drive shaft is damaged, do the following.
First, make sure the drive shaft is protected from dust, moisture, and dust. A proper driveshaft cover will prevent grease from accumulating in the driveshaft, reducing the chance of further damage. The grease will also cushion the metal-to-metal contact in the constant velocity joints. For example, hitting a soft material is better than hitting a metal wall. A damaged prop shaft can not only cause difficult cornering, but it can also cause the vehicle to vibrate, which can further damage the rest of the drivetrain.
If the driveshaft is damaged, you can choose to fix it yourself or take it to a mechanic. Typically, driveshaft repairs cost around $200 to $300. Parts and labor may vary based on your vehicle type and type of repair. These parts can cost up to $600. However, if you don’t have a mechanical background, it’s better to leave it to a professional.
If you notice that 1 of the 2 drive shafts is worn, it’s time to repair it. Worn bushings and bearings can cause the drive shaft to vibrate unnecessarily, causing it to break and cause further damage. You can also check the center bearing if there is any play in the bearing. If these symptoms occur, it is best to take your car to a mechanic as soon as possible.

Learn about U-joints

While most vehicles have at least 1 type of U-joint, there are other types available. CV joints (also known as hot rod joints) are used in a variety of applications. The minor axis is shorter than the major axis on which the U-joint is located. In both cases, the U-joints are lubricated at the factory. During servicing, the drive shaft slip joint should be lubricated.
There are 2 main styles of U-joints, including forged and press fit. They are usually held in place by C-clamps. Some of these U-joints have knurls or grooves. When selecting the correct fitting, be sure to measure the entire fitting. To make sure you get the correct size, you can use the size chart or check the manual for your specific model.
In addition to lubrication, the condition of the U-joint should be checked regularly. Lubricate them regularly to avoid premature failure. If you hear a clicking sound when shifting gears, the u-joint space may be misaligned. In this case, the bearing may need to be serviced. If there is insufficient grease in the bearings, the universal joint may need to be replaced.
U-joint is an important part of the automobile transmission shaft. Without them, your car would have no wheeled suspension. Without them, your vehicle will have a rickety front end and a wobbly rear end. Because cars can’t drive on ultra-flat surfaces, they need flexible driveshafts. The U-joint compensates for this by allowing it to move up and down with the suspension.
A proper inspection will determine if your u-joints are loose or worn. It should be easy to pull them out. Make sure not to pull them all the way out. Also, the bearing caps should not move. Any signs of roughness or wear would indicate a need for a new UJ. Also, it is important to note that worn UJs cannot be repaired.

Symptoms of Driveshaft Failure

One of the most common problems associated with a faulty driveshaft is difficulty turning the wheels. This severely limits your overall control over the vehicle. Fortunately, there are several symptoms that could indicate that your driveshaft is failing. You should take immediate steps to determine the cause of the problem. One of the most common causes of driveshaft failure is a weak or faulty reverse gear. Other common causes of driveshaft damage include driving too hard, getting stuck in reverse gear and differential lock.
Another sign of a failed driveshaft is unusual noise while driving. These noises are usually the result of wear on the bushings and bearings that support the drive shaft. They can also cause your car to screech or scratch when switching from drive to idle. Depending on the speed, the noise may be accompanied by vibration. When this happens, it’s time to send your vehicle in for a driveshaft replacement.
One of the most common symptoms of driveshaft failure is noticeable jitter when accelerating. This could be a sign of a loose U-joint or worn center bearing. You should thoroughly inspect your car to determine the cause of these sounds and corresponding symptoms. A certified mechanic can help you determine the cause of the noise. A damaged propshaft can severely limit the drivability of the vehicle.
Regular inspection of the drive shaft can prevent serious damage. Depending on the damage, you can replace the driveshaft for anywhere from $500 to $1,000. Depending on the severity of the damage and the level of repair, the cost will depend on the number of parts that need to be replaced. Do not drive with a bad driveshaft as it can cause a serious crash. There are several ways to avoid this problem entirely.
The first symptom to look for is a worn U-joint. If the U-joint comes loose or moves too much when trying to turn the steering wheel, the driveshaft is faulty. If you see visible rust on the bearing cap seals, you can take your car to a mechanic for a thorough inspection. A worn u-joint can also indicate a problem with the transmission.

The cost of replacing the drive shaft

Depending on your state and service center, a driveshaft repair can cost as little as $300 or as high as $2,000, depending on the specifics of your car. Labor costs are usually around $70. Prices for the parts themselves range from $400 to $600. Labor costs also vary by model and vehicle make. Ultimately, the decision to repair or replace the driveshaft will depend on whether you need a quick car repair or a full car repair.
Some cars have 2 separate driveshafts. One goes to the front and the other goes to the back. If your car has 4 wheel drive, you will have 2. If you’re replacing the axles of an all-wheel-drive car, you’ll need a special part for each axle. Choosing the wrong 1 can result in more expensive repairs. Before you start shopping, you should know exactly how much it will cost.
Depending on the type of vehicle you own, a driveshaft replacement will cost between PS250 and PS500. Luxury cars can cost as much as PS400. However, for safety and the overall performance of the car, replacing the driveshaft may be a necessary repair. The cost of replacing a driveshaft depends on how long your car has been on the road and how much wear and tear it has experienced. There are some symptoms that indicate a faulty drive shaft and you should take immediate action.
Repairs can be expensive, so it’s best to hire a mechanic with experience in the field. You’ll be spending hundreds of dollars a month, but you’ll have peace of mind knowing the job will be done right. Remember that you may want to ask a friend or family member to help you. Depending on the make and model of your car, replacing the driveshaft is more expensive than replacing the parts and doing it yourself.
If you suspect that your drive shaft is damaged, be sure to fix it as soon as possible. It is not advisable to drive a car with abnormal vibration and sound for a long time. Fortunately, there are some quick ways to fix the problem and avoid costly repairs later. If you’ve noticed the symptoms above, it’s worth getting the job done. There are many signs that your driveshaft may need service, including lack of power or difficulty moving the vehicle.
