I found a Massey Ferguson 650 tiller with the extension and most of the mounting brackets but the tiller drive shaft and gearbox for it are missing. I have been looking for a while and have had no luck finding the missing parts. I have several different gearboxes and could make the driveshaft but have not been able to find a
3/4 inch, 8 spline coupling to fit the shaft coming forward out of the tiller gear box. Anyone have a lead as to finding either the factory u-joint or a coupling that fits the tiller input shaft?

I had the opposite problem. Had a sq input and a splined gearbox. Took two parts units and made one with the spline.

I was about to take the shaft out, cut it off and weld something standard to the end.
