Well you’re at 213k subs now so you’re doing something right. Without knowing anything about this sort of machinery I thought that it would be worth $10-20k so that was pretty good. If the all up cost to you ends up at around $5k I would seriously think of keeping it. Yes I have now subbed to your channel...with a bell. Cheers from Australia!

Yep.....Had this same issue years ago and solved it with a slip clutch. Go to your "local" bearing/drive component supply house and get the Love Joy coupler that has 1/2 with the correct spline. Take all the parts to your local machine shop and get them slip coupler turned down on the side that has the U joint connection. This same shop can then weld in the 1/2 part from the Love Joy to the slip clutch. This sounds like a lot, but after you spend the money and time to replace this several times, you have more than paid for the custom part. In may case I got lucky and could but only the 1/2 of the Love Joy that I needed. Hope this helps. Love the channel!!

Very good info here.. Who the Heck came up with the idea of using steel fuel tanks anyway? Much less how many have seen rusted out at the bottom Fuel Filters? They all rust due to the affinity of diesel for water. I'm sure rust particles wrecked my last set of injectors. Took them out, two had broken springs.. My new RT-40 finally has a plastic fuel tank. Took 'em long enough.

Sweet machine, oldest motor grader I've operated was a 12 E series Caterpillar, late 1960s vintage, they had a nasty reputation for breaking operators wrists, from torque feedback into the hand controls, wonder if Christine has a similar set up, no fancy hydraulics on her by the look of it (maybe all the better keep it simple) Regards - Al Western Australia.

You have the splines. For that matter you have the females too. Toss them into a lathe and get the ends cleaned off and neatly rounded and get the engineer to weld them onto any double Cardan Joint you can find of a suitable size. Then unbolt the bracket for the hydraulic motor on the mower and connect the parts in line with the motor, still on that "L" bracket. Get it in line with a straight edge and redrill the mounting holes. You might need some material to reinforce the mower deck under that mount. OR you may be able to simply bolt it on reversed giving you approx. 4" extra space. Of course you have by now fixed it or sold the piece of equipment?

Glazing channel is the term you are looking for to describe the PVC that is holding the glass in. When you go to put it back in, near boiling (about 70 - 80 c) is your friend. Makes it go in so much easier. (I work with Ally windows in Australia)
