    looks familiar

    I can remember J C Whitney selling a similar dewhickey for SM465 tranny's that popped out of gear due to broken snap rings,looked like a split shaft collar with 2 allen head bolts to hold it together...I know a few people who used them and they worked slick,but they dissapeared from the catolog,and they said they couldnt get them anymore--dont know what the reason was,maybe someone had a problem with them and sued them or something??--at any rate,it was MUCH easier to pull the PTO covers and install that "snap ring eliminator" than pulling and gutting the tranny--I knew several people whose SM465's would pop out of gear when coasting downhill,and it worked for them..:crazy:
