    No problem....It should be pretty easy to find one in a yard. They used them up until the late 80's, I'm pretty sure. And some of the later ones even have 2 PTO ports.

    As far as my project, yes, I'm putting two together and using one as a range box, mainly for towing and pulling. The first one, behind the motor, is a 1967 2.5 ton truck unit with a 1.5" output shaft and a 1.375" input shaft. The second one is a later model dual PTO case mated to an NP203. I switched the input shafts and am using the smaller late model input up against the motor. I figure as the torque builds, I need to keep the shafts larger as the power goes toward the rear. Just this Friday, I found the final splined flange for the coupler. Waiting on a set of gears for my lathe to get here and then I will be finishing up the turning on the coupler and welding it. I'll take plenty of pics and let you know how things go.

    I think we'll get along just fine. I'm 61 (yep, another ol fart) I'm also a pack rat too. At last count my son and have 21 rigs on the ranch, and only 3 of them are non-ford.......
