Installed the new to me mmm 2326-what a bear it was to install the pto shaft. So much that even though I installed it to test it out I aint taken it back apart now until winter.

Quit your bellyaching.(n):ROFLMAO:
I have a an old comforter that I fold in half and drape over the pointy parts.
I always WD40 the splines on the shaft so they move easily.
1st issue is aligning the PTO shaft with the PTO on the tractor.
Once you get that pulling back the collar and sliding it the rest of the way is just a bit of a pain.
Nothing that terrible.
You are talking to a guy here that considers leaving Loonies and Toonies (Kanuckistan $1 and $2 bill equivalents) where they fall because it's too far to bend down.
It takes me about 2 hours to cut my lawn.
I take the deck off every second time to clean it up and grease everything thoroughly.
The wheels get it every time I cut.
If I can do it so can you.(y)😁

Engage the PTO (with the tractor not running of course). This will stop the pto from spinning while you try to line up the splines. Getting the right angle will come with experience. Not withstanding the last comment it can be a bit of a pain to get it at the right angle while lying on the ground and holding the shaft in the air, used to take me a while, but after doing it many times it has gotten much easier. You've got to take it off in order to grease it, especially the U-joints on the shaft, I think book recommends every 10 hours of operation.

It was hot as heck and I was in the sun lol. The wheel shaft kept digging into my ribs which didnt help...it was also the first time for me.

You always remember the first time. :sneaky:
I do it in my barn so I'm on level cement. That helps moving it around and also getting the attachment points lined up.
Oh... that roof thing will keep you out of the sun... actually most weathers.(y)
The big blanket where you have to lie across it really does help comfort wise.

Trench cleaning time yesterday with Piranha bar.
About 40 bucket loads of grass and dirt from about the last 100' of trench, leveled a bit, cleaned out more rocks.
The raging river is ready for the next big rain. This gets very full, very fast in 2"/hour deluges
