Hi Adam, I have the same thing wondering if you have found anything out. ThanksHi Tom,
I'm a couple of years late to this conversation!!
I raised a question about this before about a year ago but couldn't find the answer unfortunately. I decided to start looking again and have just stumbled across your similar question.
Is my picture below what you are talking about? It appears that all necessary requirements are there to mount the likes of a bevel box (or similar!) to the mid chassis area of the tractor and in turn have a mid mounted PTO option for various implements that can be fabricated for it.
I'd love to hear if you managed to get a result from your searching.

Hi natwinter, unfortunately not. Apologies for the very very long delay in returning to your question.Hi Adam, I have the same thing wondering if you have found anything out. Thanks
Hi Vigo, mine's a 4wd. It is definitely a forward facing mid PTO. It engages/disengages with the PTO lever selection. I'd love to find if there were any attachments available for it. I have done a thorough check, but it appears to have an identical spline to the front prop shaft where the harley spicer joint slides on.Difficult for me to tell from the tiny pic, but if you guys have 2wd tractors you are probably looking at the thing the front driveshaft would be hooked to IF you had 4wd. If that's the case i would call it the front output shaft.
I don't think any of these old Bs had a mid PTO except the hydrostatic models, and even then im not sure all the HST models had one.
Hi natwinter, I replied in another comment in relation to the spline size etc. I have a feeling that it is identical to the spline joint on the front prop shaft for the front axle, I'll need to remove the prop shaft again to confirm though, I'll let you know when I do, not sure when I'll get around to it!Mine is a 4wd. The shaft does engage and spin with the rear pto lever. Mine seems to be an 18 spline. Just not sure how you would ever use it. Looking at the mid pto’s they are driven by a gear so would have to find a gear to go on the shaft. I’m thinking it’s a lost cause tho.
