I am looking at u joints for a project, I think I found one made by Weasler but their chart doesn't show part numbers, anyone know how to get the part numbers, the specs are,
Cap diameter: .59"
Width, cap to cap: 1.50"
Series 02
Any help would be welcome.

Check your local implement dealers.  Most handle Weasel products.  Weasel does not sell to the public.

So I basically have to go to a dealer to find what I am looking thanks.

That is a tiny u-joint! Good luck finding anything like that. If you can go larger do so as the parts will be much easier to find.

It appears Weasel starts with a #6 joint.  I have used those on garden tractors alot with great results.

Here are a couple of pieces of literature that may help you.

The second one has everything you need to know about PTO shafts

Just another odd thought, call Paulb parts counter with those specs. If anyone can find it they will.

I would go to my local welding/ag repair shop.  They should have parts on hand to make what you need and will probably have parts down the road.  A lot of feeding and other ag equipment uses small drive shafts to operate augurs, pumps. etc.

Is a flexible shaft an option, in lieu of rigid shaft and u-joint? I'm guessing the torque requirements are minimal, based on the size UJ you describe?

I am going a different route with this project, not going to modify my existing parts, just going to buy all new, thanks for everyone's help, this was what I was going to modify, just going to build a new shaft.

That looks like the driveshaft joints off of my Bolens snowthower? That blew apart on me when i needed it most.. a lot of hydro transmissions were driven with those little fellas.

That looks like the pin and block joint. They can be repaired too if your yokes are not damaged.  I have some description and parts info to repair those joint if you would like to go that way.  Massey used them all over there GTs.  They can be made greaseable too when you do the rebuild.

I have also replaced them with Weasler #6s if room and length were not issues.

Thanks but at least one yoke is spread some at this point, one with the flange is a rusted mess, I'm just going to build a new half shaft using neapco n1000 series, I bought the replacement shaft for the other end (tractor side) which is still good. The only thing I can't find is a flange yoke with 3 holes but I could always just get one and drill new holes.
