    You mean the output shaft nut? Later books show it. Free to read and download on the Tom Collins site.

    This is from the '79 book:

    I finally found the time to get this finished.

    got the output shaft seal replaced, output shaft splines sealed, new gaskets on bottom pan and PTO cover, everything torqued to spec.

    Cleaned e-brake and replaced the shoes.

    Just got back from the 3 mile maiden voyage.

    nothing fell off and no weird noises.

    e-brake even works.

    so far….

    Just want to take a second and thank you all for all the help and encouragement you gave me on this. Turned out to be as easy and straightforward as you all said it would be. So thank you!

    and it saved me hundreds of dollars to boot!
