S14h mower driveshaft question........
Posted September 26, 2010 - 09:16 PM
I'm considering buying a used 48" mower deck that only has half the driveshaft attached to the gearbox. (female half) I don't know what length the missing half is supposed to be, but it appears to be longer than the blower shaft judging by the illustration shown in the manual.
My question is: Will the front half shaft from the blower attachment (the half that connects to the engine pto, male half) .....can that work with the mower deck too or is is it too short?

The female part of the PTO shaft is also longer.
Let me know if this helped or if you would need anything else. The quick release coupler in th picture on the upper right is slick(had that shaft made locally)

I'm in the process of making new shafts for the blower, now it looks like I will need to make a male shaft for the mower as well. I will need to find a piece of 7/8 x 3/4 square stock somewhere, I have a lathe but unfortunately I don't have a mill to shave an eighth off one side of a piece of 7/8 square stock......

The parts list:
(1" 15 spline quick disconnect yoke)
(3/4x7/8 rectangular yoke)
Neapco 1-0170----Spicer 5-170x
Neapco 3/4x7/8 shaft
The shaft came in 3' sections. The parts store cut off a foot---let me take the parts, assemble them to get the correct shaft length. Once I had the correct length, I pressed the shaft into the yoke. Took the yoke with the pressed in shaft and had them weld it. You might check your local "big truck" shops/part stores and see if they have what you need. It was fairly easy to have done and total parts and labor was around $75.00.
