I was given a GT19. and recently got it running, I have a bolens tiller and would like to use it. I know i will have to convert its attachment to a cat 0 3pth. That doesn't bother me much. my real question is, can i buy a drive shaft that will convert the different splines? I would like to make this work mainly to budget constraints. Any ideas? thanks in advance. 

 

as a side note. does a kt19 normally idle that low? good lord that sounds sexy!

Welcome to GTT. Before you spend alot of time trying to adapt that tiller check the direction of rotation that it needs and what the GT19 puts out. Post some picks. Good Luck, Rick

Welcome to GTtalk!
I remember some one had made up a pto pulley. I forget where the parts were gotten.

Thats cool. The tiller I have is shaft driven. But, the spines are different.

These folks have different splines.

"given" a GT 19 grrrr.....  I haven't had any deals like that in I can't tell ya how long.

and it isn't some worn out box store piece of junk either.... can we say "you suck" on here, like they do over on garage Journal when someone gets a screaming deal?

That is a common project in the Hot Rod world. If you have ends that fit both sets of splines, it is no big thing to put a shaft between them. Make sure the UJoints are lined up dead center so they balance each other. It is best done in a lathe so get everything centered.
There are driveline shops in every major city that specialize in this job.
My dad built a drive shaft for my 51 Desoto when I put a 59 plymoth motor in it. He took a big piece of angle iron and laid the two pieces of shaft in it to line it up.

A farm equipment store might have all the parts for a driveshaft. A local hardware store that caters to the farming community stocks parts to build any kind of pto shaft. A place like that would be able to set you up.
