> those TT PTO rigs are "the new boatanchors"

My ears hurt when I heard "boatanchor" and Corsair II used in the same
sentence, but it's probably true.  As I sit here cleaning the PTO, I'm
reminded there's nothing out there being made like this anymore (brass
mechanical controls with ball bearings, etc.)  I'm not saying that's a bad
thing, just that this is a beautiful piece of equipment.  It's hard to
imagine a time when this sort of design was mainstream.

Thanks to all for the advice on alignment, caps, etc.

PTO rebuild going well.
