Removing Woods PTO Sprocket

Postby Xperimental » Sun Jun 04, 2023 11:11 pm

I am taking a Woods L59 off of a Fast Hitch Cub and have everything off but the small chain drive sprocket on the PTO shaft.
This sprocket is locked on the shaft via a tapered bushing arrangement. The Woods install instructions are to alternately tighten two bolts to lock the tapered bushing. I removed the two bolts but the sprocket will not budge. Any ideas?

There should be two more holes, half-way between the holes you took the bolts out of. Screw the bolts into those holes. Tighten them evenly and they should push the bushing out. These holes should be threaded and may need cleaning out.

This should help.

There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Thanks Jim and Barnyard, I will have a look for another pair of threaded holes tomorrow. The bolts I removed were on the backside and I will look for another pair holes on the back of the sprocket/bushing. The bolts I removed from the back were in threaded holes that extend through to the front.

Spray that shaft down with your favorite penetrating oil before removal! After that pulley comes off apply some Neverseize on the shaft so you or the next owner will have an easier job getting it off in the future….

When you put it back together put the bold on the outside.

In a pinch, you can use some aluminum or bronze wedges to drive the bushing out of the sprocket, but there should be threaded holes to push them apart as others have said. Mine was installed the same way making it difficult to find and use the threaded holes.

If it was installed with the bolts to the transmission side, you should be able to remove it with a conventional puller. Hopefully, that won't be needed.

The sprocket was installed too far back to use bolts from the back to free the sprocket from the hub. I did find a solution. As I mentioned, the threaded holes for the clamping bolts extend all the way through. I used very long machine screws from the outside and blocked the holes going into the bushing/hub. I have pictures but don't see a way to include them here. The sprocket came off but the bushing/hub is not budging. I sprayed it with penetrating oil and will see what it looks like tomorrow. I will probably have to use a gear puller to get the bushing/hub off the PTO shaft.

careful yanking the hub, they do not take a lot to bust the ears,, grab it close to the shaft
