Sorry but I know a lot about the signs of one needing repair (or
re-greasing) since I have four of them in that condition. So far, I
have been unmotivated to dive into the PTO's and install the kits I have
already purchased. Seems I just buy another rig and yet another.
Because of this, I do not know anything about the mechanics of the drive
mechanism of those PTO's.
When I began reading your email, I wondered if the setscrew in your knob
was tight, but then you said the shaft was turning.
Cannot help you, but I am sure others on the reflector can!
