Should I buy this Bolens?

I have an opportunity to purchase a 1991 GT1800 tractor with 48" deck and 54" snow blade. The tractor has 1100 hours on it and is in excellant shape. The only known problem is that the U-joint that connects the PTO shaft to the mower deck is broken. The "quick connect" collar is gone. Owner is asking $300....seems like a good deal providing I can get the U-joint fixed.

What will it take to replace/repair this U-joint? Can they still be bought?

Are there any known/common problems with this model?

What does "Duratrac" mean?

It's an 18 HP Kohler. This tractor is super clean. It was owned by an elderly gentleman who was meticilous about maintenance. Always garage kept also.

Anyone know about the u-joint or what Duratrac means?
After checking on Ebay I think I've found the U-joint for $300.00!!!|66:2|39:1|72:2149|293:1|294:50

Sonny's Bolens appears to have it for $200.

This seems like a crazy amount of money to me. Do these prices sound right to you guys? Are Bolens parts just expensive because of availability?
