I would like to thank Donald Rumsfeld for the term "unknown unknowns." In the past I had read all of the posts about the spline shaft, PTO, etc.. For whatever reason I didn't think "hey what is that pto powering anyway, maybe I could cut and bale hay going down the road."

Back when some people were having spline lubrication issues, I had crawled under to check mine. With some pics, and discussion, I think I remember someone telling me mine was upgraded to a oil lubrication as there were some added oil lines? Or maybe I dreamed this?

Gosh, maybe I need to add newbie to my signature line.

The PTO has an oil supply line,if its been converted to a "wet spline" it will have a "T" in that hose and another hose will come off of that T and go to the adapter between the PTO and the pump.
Your pic is good,but you need a selfie stick so you can slide it under the PTO to see the small hoses.

Thanks Randy, really appreciate the comments. So would the lines circulate hydraulic oil through the PTO?

I don't have a selfie stick. I have discovered that I can voice command my phone to take pictures, but my phone doesn't really understand me. So I end up saying- take it, take it, take the dang picture.

I had a few more pics in my "bird pic" folder.

you do not have the wet spline kit.
I don't have a selfie stick either.

Mark to elaborate further on your PTO, yours is dry spline, i.e., no spline lubrication at all. If you have not done any maintenance on it, you might consider moving it up on your bus list. If your splines are in good condition, you can convert your PTO to a wet spline. But be aware splines wear out together, so the PTO and the pump will require replacement if worn out. It get expensive very quickly, but if you do it at home its not a hard job.

Thanks Andy, the list for this weekend is adding up. The splines are getting greased. I have searched for Chelsea grease, can't find it anywhere. Any idea on the cost / part number for wet conversion? I have started searching online, but haven't found anything yet.

Did you do a custom search on the WOG Forum?

Fleetpride either has the grease or can order it. I’m sure it’s available on line or from Chelsea. Buy another grease gun gun just for the spleen grease. The stuff is very poisonous. Wear gloves.
Good luck
Dan

The only way you can grease a dry spline is splitting it from the pump, that's a lot of work considering the lubrication frequency. I have the greaseable shaft PTO, I carry a grease gun with the magic spline grease in the bus and lubricate the splines every 2000 miles. Some lubricate on a 3000 or 4000 miles or once a year frequency, that's up to you to determine. The spline grease is manufactured by Schaffer Oil for Chelsea and sold in small packets or cartridges under Chelsea part numbers.


I had a dry spline PTO on my bus when I got it and is was still in good condition, one of the other Woggers converted it to a wet spline and installed it on his bus. I bought a new greaseable shaft PTO for my bus. You can convert your PTO to wet spline easily by removing the oil seal inside and adding a supply line to the connecting housing. Since I did not do this I'll let others who have explain.


This is a good thread on the whole subject and I believe has the grease part numbers too: https://www.wanderlodgeownersgroup.c...ad.php?t=12023

Chelsea recommends their own grease, p/n 379831 available from Fleetpride for $17.20. I heard NAPA can order it, too.,
