Re: 1025 front PTO drive shaft
Front PTO shafts, with carrier bearing/bracket are pretty common around here on Craig's List. I wouldn't chop up that 1025r shaft. You shouldn't have any trouble at all selling it on Craig's List and for far more than you'll spend on a 4X5 front PTO shaft.
Yes, your photos are of a 1025R front PTO shaft.
FYI, If I recall correctly, the intermediate shaft that is bolted to the blower gear box input shaft is a different also, between a 1025R and a 4X5. I had 455s and moved up to 1025Rs. At first, I was just going to adapt my existing snowblowers. However, it was more cost effective to sell my exiting snowblowers and purchase new than adapt.
