Found 2 drive shafts! But one is missing a u-joint! Anybody know what will replace it?

I did some more today! I flipped the front section upside down and pulled the front axle. The drag link was seized on one end and not adjustable. After some heat and Acetone/ATF, it loosened up. The tie rod is non-adjustable, that is getting changed!

I'll use the short one from these.

Got the center lift shaft out as I do not plan for one.

Here's the guide I made up to open the BGB hole to 3".

 Here's the ring I cut out of the hole. Lots of oil for the hole saw.

The plate there is about 1/2" thick!

The Ford tiller u-joint has plenty of room to go through.

And for the banned guest following this, I will make this work and look decent! You haven't a clue how to build a tractor like this, so just go away!

Is Ray still in the middle of his move / setting up his new shop (assuming he is that far along)? I haven't seen much posting from him (unless I'm blind and not noticing).

Not sure what he is up to right now! He has posted some, but may be moving!

I use them often for boring through steel. No need for the center bit! It's easier on a drill press, but no way to get this under it!

Yes, they are smaller! Less mass to spin!

I'll have to have the shaft here so I can cross the u-joints! Thanks!

 

I looked at the 716 Parts Manual and the tie rod is correct for this. Not sure why it's non-adjustable, though. I think I'll leave it for now as I can't seem to find any 3/8" IP that I was going to use for stretching the adjustable one. I believe I have a 7/16" rod with threads on one end out there somewhere. If it is long enough, I'll thread the other end so I can make the new one.

Paulbparts..com has pto shaft stuff and joints, but not the little tiny ones used by a lot of gt's for prop shafts to the transaxle. Personally, I would use the larger units, as they are easily serviced.
