Hey group,

What is the best way to identify which rear PTO I have. I know there is a J-17 and a K-17, are there other models? Are there markings on them? I cannot find any markings on mine but it was painted black. :headscratcher:

What is the difference between the two models?

Tom,
PTO's are no different than any other attachment. They evolved over the years and the letter changed from C to D and so on to L 17. Most likely, your PTO came from a Black Frame tractor and it's an L-17.

J, K and L's will all work with a H or J-26 three point hitch but not with and HH-34. What are your concerns?

Thanks Tom,

No concerns. I blew a hydraulic tube at the end of the season last year and put rubber hoses from TSC to get me through. Before snow season I removed the PTO and hoses as well as the hygrabagger. Now that spring is upon us and I have the 448 as well as the 446 I plan on making things right on the 446. new tubes for the PTO is one of those things that I want right, the rubber hoses don't fit right. So I either need to look for some used tubes, have some made or buy new ones....knowing the exact model I have will help in the process of searching for used or new tubes.

Hoses are easier to route than steel lines are and they don't create harmonics. Are you aware that hoses can be made with fitting that have 45 and 90 degree bends in them? You can also buy fittings with 90, 45 and 22,5 degree offsets so that the hose itself remains as straight as possible. You need to find a really good hydraulics specialty shop. Look for a business that does nothing else but hydraulics. They keep a huge amount of fitting styles on hand out of necessity. Show them your old steel line or better yet, float your tractor to their back door and let them see it first hand.

save your money. DO not use the steel lines.
i purchased my L-17 in 83, i used the steel lines one year.
then i discarded them, due to the harmonics as tom stated.
SO the hoses that i made in 1984 are still there.
J and K are for 200 and short W.B. 400 tractors.
L fits the longer W.B. 400 series.
ALSO, i used 5/8 hose on mine.
thank you. boomer
