I just picked up the mowing deck and snowblower for my 1253. They have a square drive to operate them. The pto on the tractor has a splined shaft. I did not get the driveshaft to use them. Any ideas where and what I need?

You need just two parts which will work for both attachments.

It is a universal joint which has a splined opening on one end to fit the PTO shaft on the tractor, and a rectangular opening on the other end to fit the rectangular shaft on the mower deck and snowblower. .....The joint came with each attachment, and matched the color of the attachment.

The other part is a spring pin which held the U-joint onto the PTO shaft.

Someone on this forum may have one to sell.

Thanks Bruce...Anyone have one for sale? I'm more interested in using the mowing deck than the snow blower. Any pictures?

Sounds to me like you just need the half that goes from the splines to the square drive (the one on the right in Bolens 1000's post). I have several that I can sell. Send me a PM if you are interested. It will work with both the blower and mower deck.
