I have a Simplicity 9020 that is refusing to give up the Tiller PTO Shaft. It went in readily and worked flawlessly, until I attempted to remove the tiller. Got the machine disconnected, but I cannot get the shaft out of the PTO drive of the tractor.

When I depress the collar, the retaining balls seem free and to make sure, I have lubricated them, squirted lub past the collar, down the splines, tapped around, pried a bit... No luck.

It will rotate readily, but there is no in/out movement at all.

Have any of you encountered similar issues? Suggestions?

Sounds to me as though the shaft could be stuck, it went in ok it has to come out. Try a little more force without over doing it or maybe a little heat.
