    I would almost bet that you need to push forward on the collar rather than back. Mine on my bush hog brand it that way. It will move to the rear just like the front with center being locked and pulling back doesn't release it. Last time I put mine on it stayed on for months and when I was trying to remove it, I just couldn't get it to budge and I was pulling it to the rear. Somehow I pushed on it and it slide forward so I then knew that the collar had to be pushed forward not pulled back. If you have the twist to release, then I have had the ball bearings rust up and not fall back inside. Lots of penetrant and a few taps with a hammer finally released the retainers.

    Personally, I detest those slip collars. The seem to always be hard no matter what.

    If (WHEN) you get the collar off of the shaft you may consider switching it out for a pin type. Tractor Supply and tractor dealers have them.

    Just tap out the U-joint and replace the end.

    Okay, I decided to approach this trying the simplest method first and it worked. I simply used a small crow bar to apply leverage on the collar while holding the collar back so it could slide off the shaft. With just minimal coaxing she came right off. One lesson learned here for sure, I will go get me the pin type to replace the slip on collar. Those things are the work of the devil. LOL!!!

    Thanks for all the suggestions!

    I have both types. I always clean the shaft and spray WD40 on everything just before hooking up. Never had a problem with either kind.

    Glad it worked for you. I agree, the pin type is simpler when they malfunction.

    Glad your problem is solved. Use a lot of grease on the splines and other sliding parts. I make it a rule never to keep pto driven equipment attached to the tractor unless I plan to use the implement within the next few days. Eliminates a lot of problems with stuck pto splines etc.
