Dale, just seeing this post, I loaded the trailer yesterday and loaded the whole mower up, actually still hooked to the tractor :lol: It's all coming. Im not sure of the splines shaft you have hooked on the mower end. Mine slides on a round shaft at the mower end and takes a square key to lock the two together. See you at the Waller :big afro:

I don't believe the RM-42 and 42F shafts are the same, they are 'rigged' differently. I ain't dragging my 42F shaft down there, but may be able to get some decent pictures for you....

Dale, I have a 42F and perhaps I can bring the shaft to RPRU for inspection.

...and you would feel safe bringing it within my grasp??!!! :lol: That would be very generous of you!

I am SURE somewhere in this great wide country lurks a drive shaft hanging in someone's barn. Everybody keep your eyes open!! I do plan to stop in Roxboro sometime, so a few photos to show the folks there what I need would be really helpful. Maybe with a tape measure along side, and a view into the splined ends. Thanks for any help. See you guys soon! :D

Do you have any part of it or do you need the whole thing?? The picture I have of Cecil s is a splined shaft, but pretty sure mine is square (actually nearly square, keeps you from getting it out of phase).

All I have is the long male 10-spline section attached to the mower. So what I need is the short female, 10-spline PTO piece attached via a universal to another longer female 10-spline shaft, which would slip onto my mower's shaft.

I have #10 assembly: Rear Universal Drive and need #2: Front Universal Drive on page 8:

The shaft is splined? Could be harder to find that way.... surely the old part is around SOMEWHERE and very much lost, piece of 'junk' leaning against a barn wall somewhere.

A good drive shaft place would be wise about it.... when I got the U-joint for my Mott the guy was very knowledgeable about what I had in my hand, spun around and grabbed the right part even before I got to counter. He said a Cub 10 spline yoke was available.

I plan to stop in Roxboro on the way to Boss'...should give me an idea of availabilty, at least! Thanks, and I am ever hopeful that the parts will be available or someone will find one hanging on the wall in that old barn!! :D

I baught my cub lowboy with a danco c2 rear mount for fast hitch. The shaft was bent were the slip sleave (approx 4.5 " long) and the drive shaft tube ( approx 13" long) meet.

this link shows similar slip sleave but not 10 spline and does not have felt seal.

http://www.paulbparts.com/drivelines/we ... o-slip-s-0

The original shaft tube was flaired a little to allow slip sleave to go inside shaft tube and was welded. That section was destroyed so I turned the slip sleave down, heated the shaft tube and pressed it in. I had to order new pto output shaft for tractor because it was bad. When It arrives I will check runout but appears to be very good. After checking runout I will weld it up.
If you make one up make sure yokes are aligned or you will und up with a pretzel.

hope that helps a little

If you want to zoom in hold ctrl and push + as many times as needed, best to count as you will want to hold ctrl and push - when done
