What do you mean by the rear of the t-case?? When I looked at the AA adaptor it was about the width of the sm465 and that was about it. The side port of the pto on the t-case to me looked totally clear.
Pete S, would you look under your toy and let me know the make of this PTO, is it a Ramsey/ Spicer / THOMAS ? Also, is it re- verseable. DID you mount the unit on the 4 speed tranny or on the side of the transfercase? DonPete_S said:With a pile of things I got with my Cruiser purchase was a three speed tranny/transfer, with the PTO unit mounted to the driver's side. I simply took it off and bolted to the same place on the 74, 4 spd. transfer. (Cause I didn't know that it might not work) And it works. I don't have the PTO shaft on yet, because as mentioned, it's too short, got to make up a new one. The thing runs when shifted into gear. :dunno:
Can we futher this disscusion on toy 4speed gearbox/pto units--On the OLD 3speed toy gear box you were able to mount a pto on the driver's side /inspection coverlocation on the 3sp gear box itself,Forget about the transfercase for now,Chelsea, Spicer made drive units-(pto's) for the SM420/465 4speed that would bolt up and worked fine. Now- toy 4 speed gear box H4x, H41/H42 Some of the early 4 speed had two (2) insp. cover plates, 73^75, not sure of the year,Did not note the case cast # befor we gave it away!!!. When you look at a later 4speed gearbox(again -not the transfercase) ,this tranny has 1 inspection cover plate located on driver's side, Where DO I find a PTO to mount in this location?cruiserrg said:What I mean by rear of t-case is that there were PTO units available that bolted to the rear of a 3speed case (where the cover is to access with output shaft nut and spacer). The AA spud shaft isn't as long as a stock cruiser 3speed output shaft, so a rear mounted (back of t-case) PTO box won't work.
Hope that makes sense.
