Hi all,
I'm new to the forum, but I thought this would a good place to get some info....

I have a 1669L Bolens, and an 18315 tiller attachment to go along with it. The only problem is that the tiller did not come with the driveshaft or the arms to mount it to the tractor. Last year I tried to fabricate these parts, but failed miserably and almost ruined the underside of the tractor when the driveshaft bent and left go!

Has anyone else had any success finding or creating these pieces, and willing to share dimensions/diagrams, etc? I've also been cruising Ebay and Craigslist, but it seems these are tough parts to come across.

Thanks in advance for any help/advice you can provide!!
Tom
