Yes..it is a manual shift pro, just like a truck has..mounts with same 6 bolts as they still do..Parts for this chelsea pto are obsolete, bearings were easy, the shim gaskets and shims for the intermediate shaft, still the same. the top cover was shot, and after many phone calls..emails..found a new one in mass.  the thing is... Being the pto drives the winch direct ...the protection to against breaking stuff is the torque converter(fluid coupling) being you would push the clutch, shift the pto in gear, shift the winch in gear and simply speed the engine up and once it has a load, speed the engine up some more. then once you take your foot off the throttle pedal, the winch should stop fast. ..good in theory as I never drove or worked the machine

Thanks everyone, 

I thought I would share. My younger son drove it, he was coming un glued! All the hard work the three of us put into this and it came out better than I though, kinda hate to use it and bang it up, but we will be careful, not ruthless. But "Ethel" has been taken apart to the last nut, bolt, split it and she's ready for so weekend warrior work.

I painted the winch levers different colors so my sons could get used to it. I have to paint the blade, the wheels and finish the new cage, and paint that. I wanted a new, stronger cage, have to be safe. And paint th cage, I send pics then

Hi all! I have not posted in a while, after all, life has it's twists and turns and finally getting back to Ethel.

I enlisted a great friend in Maxwell the manual machinist. I wasn't getting all the fab work done and need to get the cage finished up, so he is the man. The cage is about done now. Max and I are car guys also, this guy is one hell of a fabricator and overbuilds everything.After all we want it safe and strong. So, the old cage was crap, and rebuilding or making a new one that replaces stock is not safe, really only was stair railing tube with a little wire cloth, so meant for brush, small branches, no ROPS or FOPS. 

So new is 2 1/2 square 1/4 wall box and a full set of replaceable wire cloth panels and 2" square 1/4 lib risers and more modern hood. The original was so damaged and smashed, was not worth a concours restoration. This will be a restored , working example of a great project, put to work, taught my sons and something they won't forget.
