I have a problem with the drive shaft where it attaches to the left drive wheel axle shaft. Both the axle shaft spline and the u-joint yoke are worn and this connection is now getting very sloppy. New parts to repair this will be $400.00. Does anyone know where I could get aftermarket parts for this at a lower cost than the dealership prices? I also need a tine bar knuckle that attaches the tine bar to the end wheel of the rake. I am looking for a used one. Does anyone have a used one for sale or know of a good salvage yard I could contact? Thank you

Cut splined shaft off wheel, buy a pto extension and have some one weld to wheel, buy pto female yoke and weld to shaft should be good to go.

I bought a complete parts 640 rake for $200. All the 640 parts are the same the difference is the 640 is a 4 bar. Tom

My Amish neighbor made me a new one in his machine shop. I think he charged me less than $100.

When you look at the cost of a new rake like that being over 9000$. 400$ To make the one you have run another 40 years comes to ten bucks a year or a new rake at 225$ a year

I would use Pete's idea.

I always wondered why they used that odd spline.
