Nah, Bolens Tube Frame is a 0.750 shaft 5 spline. This is what you need to rebuild your shaft.

The spline may be correct but the problem is the shaft on the 1050 has the same spline at the rear as well.  Also the rear bearing on the Bolens 1050 PTO is a needle bearing which runs on the shaft and as a result the shaft is probably hardened to resist wear.

That 1721596 shaft may work on the smaller tube frames with one pulley and a keyway but the 1050 has a double pulley which is splined to fit the shaft - the part number was 1716645 which I believe was superceded to 1721597 when they started to include the plastic shield for the front bearing as per the attached picture.

 

Thanks

I was wondering if you could take the good (rear) half and attach the new splines to it.
Just a thought.

That is a thought or I could just weld on a new end and recut the splines.

Thanks

I bet you would never have this trouble with a Murray.

Nope, because a Murray is all belts, no shafts.
