Being you got it for a grand total of zero dollars, I thinks you can afford to stick a few into it making it a working tractor... :thumbs:

Thank you for all the responses, and views.  Here are more pics.  Including a good look at the broken flange on the transaxle.

The lower 3 point arms attach to a 7/8" steel rod. You can see the hole where it slides thru just to the right of the broken piece. There are 3 large bolts on the underside of the rear diff. Mine has a chunk of 3/4" steel plate bolted on there that extends out to make a 2" receiver hitch. It also supports the rod for the 3 point. You could patch the hole and add a plate to make a support.

I presume it's just a place that bracket that sticks down next to it bolts up?

 

I'd be tempted to cut/file an aluminum block to fit and have a competent welder attach it to the trans axle.

The cast piece that is broken off of it extends out to form a tube for the 3 point arms attachment rod. It extends from the hole you see to the right of the broken out piece, 1&1/4" back towards the center, right up against that bracket.

I see you are looking to sell it on Craigslist.  If you have a use for the tractor, it is definitely worth keeping.

Yeah I put it up just to see if it draws interest.  I'm really torn because on the one hand, I'm a pro handyman and this thing could be useful personally and on the job.  On the other hand I have several rebuild projects going already (a John Deere 110, a Johnson boat motor, and a Polaris sled I may start as well).  Too many fun things to rebuild and not enough time.  Maybe I'll keep the Bolens and part-out the JD 110.  I don't know.  Money talks and I'm somewhat broke right now.

I took her for a little spin this afternoon.  Very impressive turn radius and the thing can climb like hell.  Perhaps I'll keep it after all and perhaps part-out my John Deere project.

Wise choice!
