The coupling that attaches the driveshaft rag joint to the transmission input shaft broke on my 782. Apparently the old coupling has been updated to the one that uses a ball bushing similar to the ones on an 1811. It looks like for things to fit I'm going to have to cut the driveshaft. Has anyone done this?

I can get the old style coupling if I need it. Is that the better way to go?

Thanks in advance.

I may be wrong here but I am just about 100% certain that the newer style (ball bushing) drive shafts did not start until the Cyclopes models. I have an 1811 here in pieces and have had others ,non have had the newer drive shaft.

But as far as making one work. The rear coupler is splined. The input shaft on your 782 is not. One could either remove the splines (with a lathe) or make a new coupler. I am unsure on the length of the shaft, but it could easily be cut and made the correct length if needed.

I have a couple of the newer shafts here that will be transplanted into my machines down the road. I am just guessing , but if you were to find one out an 1861- or the likes that had the Mag 18 (not the command), the shaft might just be the rite length.

I am sorry I was not thinking correctly. I thought you meant to put the newer style drive shaft in there instead of the old. They have a ball bushing joint instead of the rag joint.

Both the 782 and the 1811 should have the same drive shaft pieces.Per parts tree.
