Works for me.

My brother split my dad's 77 Oliver with front loader picking up dirt. Tractor broke at the torque tube. Took us a couple of days to jack up both halves of the torque tube and chain them to the loader frame. Engine still ran so we use the hydraulics to lift up the bucket. Then towed the tractor back to the shop.

Dad wasn't happy. Never did tell us what it cost to put the tractor back together. I think Dad's biggest expense was the pto shaft and the toughest part of the fix was removing the lengthy pto shaft. Pto shaft had a considerable bend in it, bend probably matched much both halves of the torque tube fall when it broke.

Dennis. Thanks for recalling some of my good old days.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I guess that would be the quick method. Not too safe though. :shock:

Duct tape ain't gonna fix that!
I love how the driver jumps off and calmly walks over and shuts down the front half.
