Now that winter is here I can start working on my tiller. I have discovered that the U-joints are shot and I can't find replacements. Can anyone help with this? It is the 33" tiller. Thanks

My tiller is Model No. 18618 and thanks to the Manuals area. To answer boyscout862 I have a Bolens 1050. I know this isn't the original tiller for this model tractor, but it works.

 I have discovered that the U-joints are shot and I can't find replacements. Can anyone help with this? It is the 33" tiller. Thanks

 

One option is to replace the entire driveshaft with the universals, but that won't be cheap!  ...Part # 1713550.  .....You may find a good, used shaft.

 

There were repair kits for the U-joints listed in the Bolens manual : Part # 1714207 for U-joints marked 6N or Part # 1714208 for U-joints marked Neapco.

 

Maybe one of our sponsors can furnish what you need.  .....Failing that, I believe the "6N" designation is an industry number. ....You may try an online search for that or "Neapco."

If one of the site sponsors can't help you they can probably be sourced at an auto parts or farm supply store. 

 

"Part # 1714207 for U-joints marked 6N or Part # 1714208 for U-joints marked Neapco."

 

The 1714207 crosses to a 861 Precision or 1-1475 Neapco - should have .969" diameter bearing caps

 

The 1714208 crosses to a 338 Precision or 1-0170 Neapco - should have .938" diameter bearing caps

 

Here is a link to the Neapco catalog http://neapco.mycarparts.net/ - you can enter the Neapco part numbers and verify the diameter of your old bearing caps and inside width of the yoke - both joints are inside locks.

Check with a equipment welding repair shop.  Most of them handle the small U-Joints and shafts and could make one up for you.  Lot of older tractor steering shafts had small U-Joints in them.  I know Farmall/International did and probably others too.

From a cost standpoint your better getting used ones, new tines list about $25-30 ea

I can get you new ones , but I'm sure one of the guys here may have some used sets for you for a 1/4 of the cost
