Yea, pretty common, sheared off one of the drive shaft coupling bolts. It probably was not the correct bolt, as they are about $19 from a Cub Cadet or CaseIH dealer. Unfortunately, you really do need to go with the correct bolt, as it has a really long shank, and about 1/2" of threads on the end, that way the shank goes all the way through all of the coupling and the threaded part is outside of the coupling. Take the tunnel cover off and you'll see them.

this is what i found on ground havent looked at it yet.Image so i should look where the driveshaft coupler mounts to the flywheel.. 20 bucks and a easy fix would make my day..thanx the center where the threeds are missing is that from wear. bolt is 1/2 inch x 1 1/2 long that fell off. but its broke off so dont no how long it is normally. case dealer with my serial # can hook me up then,,, thanx steve
