The yokes that have the shaft on them have a hole that is just a hair bigger than the shaft so you can slide the shaft in and then weld it onto the yoke and cut it to the length you need and it'll run true.  Thats neat finding paperwork like that for the tractor.     Stewart

Thanks for all the help Stewart, next dumb question:  

 

Where do you buy the square shafting and the mating tube for the other side?  I've found a few places that offer the yokes the and U-joints but have had no luck finding the rest of the parts to build my own shafting...

What size square shaft? I googled 'square shafting' and found several places, but could get expensive.

I can find the square shaft too, I probably didn't quite explain adequately. It's either .750 square or (I believe) .750 x .850 are the yoke options I've found. But you're definitely right on the price issue, I'd like to find something more reasonable... The part I'm having trouble with is the round end for the other half of the PTO shaft that the square shaft fits into... I can probably grab a picture to illustrate if my description is too hard to follow.

Have you tried any of the Cub parts sources?

No I haven't. Basically since parts for these blowers are NLA I'm hoping to come up with sources to build my own driveshafts so I won't be afraid to use it and wear it out...might be a little backwards but that's my way of thinking lol.

Plus if I get this sorted out properly then I can build pto shafts for other crazy projects I have in mind :D

I don't know if anyone else has this same fear/thought process but if I repair something and get it functional using parts I may never be able to find again (at least for any semblance of a reasonable cost) then I'll be afraid to actually use it much as wear or breakage could spell doom for that particular machine. Granted these H42 blowers are far from "rare" but knowing I can just order pieces and parts to repair whatever may go wrong in the future is great peace of mind for me.

That is very understandable! Does the other end go from the square shaft to round shaft? Any way to take a chunk of square and turn it to round? Then use round shaft u-joint?

AHA! It's the round part with the square hole you are looking for!

I order the parts from TISCO when I need to make them.  The 6N size is standard for the smaller tractors so it should be redily available for a long time to come.  The female shaft wont be round with a square hole in it.  It'll just be square wih the hole in it.  And the price isnt cheap.  I think the last time I looked it up it was somewhere around $120-150 to make each side.  You could try looking at Tractor Supply or some place like that for the parts too.              Stewart
