It's a male 1.5" Dia by 10-spline the mating part I suppose came from the maker in the 1960s is not a female spline it uses two removable keys and a squishy-nut-&-bolt to compress the connection the yoke is split for the squishy.

But it gets better.
There's a honkin big hex nut on a threaded component on the end of the male spline. The nut is pinned to the threaded member.

Does it make you feel good to insult people?

Are you making a joke? I didn't see it that way at all.
Raul's style seems like common conversational slang to me.
Not much different from the downhome hillbilly culture I grew up with.

And no, I've never seen a PTO connection even remotely like that.
I'd guess either it's a patent beater attempt, or military.

I must be really stupid. I don't know what you are saying here.
I mean you used plain English, The grammar is good, and your sentence construction and verb tense all work, but I just don't get what you are saying.

It's the input shaft for my Haward SelectaTilth Tiller

OK. I'll play. Why in the world would someone take the trouble to invent a coupling like that instead of using any of the spline & U-joint couplers that are available as a standard part?

What problem is he trying to solve that can't be solved with standard parts?

I'm reminded of the Lucas Magneto on my old AJS. Nice assembly, faulty logic.

Most guys would be f***** if it breaks. I have a machine shop and a welder so I'd find a way but man this is odd.

That's most likely something someone put together to make it work. The factory setup has a built it slip clutch as shown in the picture below.
