But if they don't have them, the are available many places. Unless you want NOS ones that bolens sold.

You should be able to find them at Farm and Fleet, Fleet Farm or Tractor Supply Company.

I would look for the ones with the tapered ends. They make life a LOT easier when mounting attachments.

My local F + F does not have them..I need them about an inch long

Farm and Fleet has small hardware boxes that might have those pins, not in the big bins usually found by the hitch parts. Problem with most of those pins is length. Now days to save stock they have one diameter kinda long with many holes for clip positions and don't look that neat hanging out too long. AND, I would think all those clip holes would weaken the pin if using the outer lengths. I bet 5/8" x 1 would be a hard one to find, think you will be looking for longer and have to shorten to make them. McMaster-Carr might have better selection. They have eeasy to use web site.

I've bought stuff from this place, and just got an email with some clearance stuff listed. The pins were in it.

Only the stainless steel ones are pricey. Go with plated steel and they will be much less. That is what bolens sold
Like pictured but no rust. This one is 2" overall and 1-3/8" usable. Which will work for your mower deck.

I just ordered some from McMaster-Carr. I ordered the 3" ones. They were in a pack of 5 for $8.49. I figured if I need them shorter I can cut them down. I looked at my local TSC and I believe the price for one was close to $2.30. After doing some math and such I think I spent a buck or so more then going to TSC. The price for shipping is where they got me. I looked several times at TSC and if they had any pins, they had two at the most.
