Hello all,

I have a PTO U-joint; I need to disassemble the U joint...but they look solid, they do not have the clip rings.

How in the world do I get them apart??

Here is the picture of them.

Should have inside clips, just under each yoke ear next to the rubber seals. You can see the grooves for the clips in this pic.

Yep, just catch one end of the clip & push them off. If stuck & stubborn, just use a punch & tap end of clips with a hammer.

I just picked up a U-joint for Fred's post hole digger tonight that I'll install tomorrow. His digger has a larger diameter auger than mine, and I had some big posts. My local farm supply was fresh out of post holes, so I had to dig my own! LOL Anyway, the rear joint blew, but TSC had just one of the size I needed. Thankfully all I needed was one! I replace a LOT of U-joints on my farm!

Sometimes it's easy....other times a NIGHTMARE! Usually done before true damage occurs, it's easy as sin. But if the U-joint comes apart & runs some before you know something is wrong, things can get nasty. Yokes get splayed out & have to be tweaked back, yoke holes get damaged & require a dremel or similar to smooth out....glad yours was easy!
