I know there are 3, I have 3 that are all 50-1/4" I assume they are for the HT tractors ? One of mine was cut and lengthened. See pic below. So I'm guessing that one was for the older tractors Pre 1886 but then lengthened for the longer kohler powered tractors. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1365650780.728095.jpg

These two have different u joint ends, the black one is the later version ? ImageUploadedByTapatalk1365650942.599910.jpg


Thanks for any info you can give. I'm hoping that one will fit an HT-20. I just sold one to a guy in pa and I'm dropping it off to him on my way to plow day Friday.

The one on the top is the later version. 

 

If I'm not mistaken, they started using that style in 1971 when the 1886 was first introduced.

Well I kinda answered my question. Found an attachment interchange chart online this am and the tiller DS for the HT-20 is 50-5/16" long. And the model # 18093 was made for the HT-20, 23

Next question, are all the lift arms the same length for all the large frames ? I'm guessing they are, and only the driveshaft was longer for the later year LF. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1365682806.092305.jpg

The locking collar was used on at the large frame drive shafts but most fall apart and the collar goes missing.
