Here a picture of the shaft;image.jpg
Measures about .850 at its smallest diameter and about .875 at its largest diameter.

My HT 20 and HT 23 both have disc brakes at the wheels.
This one has a single disc on the side of the tranny.

If your going to fix this you need to pull the rear end then take the pump out and take it apart.

So, the weather has warmed up a bit.
And, I pulled the engine out of this today.
When I bought it, the seller told me he did have it running.
But, when I started removing the drive shaft, I could only turn the engine about 5 degrees.
And it felt really bad!
So I added some oil to the cylinders and let it sit.
Today I found the problem! Bad walnuts! About two dozen packed in tight behind the flywheel!
Turns over nice now. I think it will be a good running engine!
Next step is to remove the rear end.

Yea, welded up the shaft, and then turned it.
Insufiencet weld, welded again, and turned again.
Re-cut the key way and and fitted a key.
He left it tight and I hand filed it to fit.
