Pondering a thought about this Cub Cadet drive shaft that was removed from a 1440 I parted...has anyone done a conversion like this for your hydro drive line? I have logged many hrs on the very same drive line with no issues...ever! Notice the zerk fittings at each end. I have seen the u joint conversions but never a CV Joint. I'm getting some vibration again on our 1250 and the culprit is the flange at the pump...again. Rag joint type joints from engine to pump OEM style.

I tried to put a 1440 shaft on my 129 and it's to short.You will need to make a new thicker hub to bolt onto your engine.I can't remember if the splines are the same on the pump end.It's been a couple of years since I had it apart.

 

I still have the 1440 shaft in the shed for some reason or another.

The cv is a lot nicer, my brother did it on his 1772 and it runs really nice now. I don't see why with some work  you cant make it work, you may have to get some adapters made though. Here's his build thread http://gardentractor...772#entry571568

1440,1641,1860's & up yes they are splined at the pump, but the early pumps are not. At least mine aren't at the pump. Fabricating a thicker hub at the engine, my thoughts exactly. The fan is bigger also, thinking it might be too close to the charge pump especially if you have the fittings and hard lines for a lift. Currently there is no hyd lift on the 1250 at this time but I have been saving and hunting parts to do a conversion some day.

I have replaced the rag joints with 4" hay baler belting, they kind used for the large round bales.  Have one running for close to 2 years now and no issues.

I just noticed this thread, a guy on another forum makes the adapter for older pumps to the CV shaft, and he could probably make a adapter for the engine if you know how long it needs to be. I should think the fan would work, but you may need to trim blades, which I've done before with success.
