I have the same problem. I am assuming that it's stripped by the hydro input shaft. It appears that many have been successful in drilling a hole through the coupler and the shaft and inserting a 6mm(1/4") hardened bolt.
My fan is soaking in wd40 at the moment as I cant remove the set screw(this will be where I will be drilling). If I can free it soon I will will post pics of shaft repair.

Welcome! I'm not a MF guru. Slingblade's idea sounds like it may work. I just don't know much about these.
Slingblade, if you can find some PB Blaster, that might help. I also use a 50-50 mix of acetone and ATF. That works rather well, also. Not sure what's available above the border.

All of this is available in Canada.

Kenny,
I like the acetone/atf idea, I have tried PB blaster but for the price didnt think it was a vast improvement over wd or similar.
Does the acetone/atf work well as a rust preventative? I have several GMC Sprints that I would like to treat in common rust areas.

thankfully the hydrodrive shaft isn't stripped. its the coupling just after the pulleys that drive the rear pto. the front set. part of the shaft and the whole coupling is stripped out. i'd take pics but took shaft in to a guy to see if he can order new one. could take over a month tho. wondering if anybody knew where to get one.

I haven't heard of it being used that way. I've only used it for loosening rusted joints. I don't even have any WD-40 anymore. And WD-40 will freeze, so don't put it on moveable parts during winter months. I found that out on the door locks for my car years ago.
That's one reason I had switched to PB. More of an oil base. I use the PB dry lube some times, depends on the application.

I could use the pulley if slingblade doesn't need it. The one for my rear PTO on my 1650 has the splines ripped out.

so as it turns out massey decided to do an odd size for this tractor its a 3/4 in shaft that is no longer made anywhere in canada. so now looking to see if i can switch out to a larger shaft with adapter couplings for the transmittion and engine. rough estimate 500 bucks this aint going to be cheap but ya gotta do whach ya gotta do

trinity call me I might have the parts that you need sorry I did not recognize it was you. you do not need to spend that kind of money if you need bring the machine back and we will see what we can do sorry about that, if I don't have the parts then we will make some. I think you still have my number yes just to up date members here I sold him the machine he has. In fact the front machine in my avatar is the machine I sold him.
