Does anyone know if it's possible to remove the rear trans cover on an 1872/2072 without removing a rear PTO when equipped?

Mine appears to be trapped by the PTO top pulley, which is trapped by the rock-shaft on the rear 3-point, which is trapped by the fender deck, which is trapped by a steel and glass hard-cab mounted on top.

Art, hopefully you didn’t break something.

I'm pretty sure you can but never did. With that engineering marvel, I would think if you are that far into it I would pull it apart and check all the bearings, pins and couplings.......What were these people thinking when they designed them? I replace all bearings, pins and couplings on the ones I have.

Oak-
Thank you very much for that picture! I didn't realize the clutch rotor just slid off the shaft, which then exposes the four socket head screws. Once I removed those, the clutch field coil came right off, so now mine looks like yours and the back trans cover should come right off. Thank you, you've saved a ton of time now that the fenders and cab do not have to be removed!

Art, did you not get the PTO/3 Point Installation Manual when you bought the 2072? Or did you forget to look at it. ;) It may have given you clues to the PTO clutch rotor sliding off.

Kraig-
LOL! Yep, I have the manual, and read it, but I was using the online version and was going from memory since I didn’t have the laptop in the garage with me. (I hate getting greasy fingerprints on old manuals). I tried pulling the rotor off initially, but it didn’t budge. After seeing Oak’s pic, I realized I needed to pull harder, and the rotor came right off.

Hope to pull the rear cover tonight and make sure it’s all cleaned out as some goof put JD Hydraulic fluid in it. 😂

Hey, I wasn't the one that put the JD Hydraulic fluid in it, though I am related to them. :)
