And you need to make an alignment tool for installing the clutch on your tractor.

And when you don't have a piece of dowel and a roll of electrical tape. Very nice "vertical lathe". Necessity is the Mother of Invention.

Actually, there was some duct tape used in the final tool. It was a 3 step alignment due to the PTO drive pinion.
