I got a 1996 gt2055 to replace the deck on my 990. Everything is ready but the driveshaft. New bearings, pulleys, blades, paint for the deck so it looks like new. I even replaced the bent 3/4" rod for the back rollers with 3/4" allthread and welded a extra height adjustment bracket off the old deck in the middle so it won't bend again. Now I need to shorten the female/slide end of the driveshaft to fit the 990. It came from the GT2055 and the pto is in a different location from the 990's. Wizard measured his for me but the 13.5" length didn't jive with mine. The slide end from the GT is about 11" from end to end and that is about 2 or 3" too long. I'd like to cut it to match factory since it's going to be a pain to do and I don't want to use trial and error....error could be catastrophic if it's too long! Any measurements would be appreciated.
