I remember studying this post when the steering went out on my L2550. Didn't have access to a MIG welder, so went another route--bought a metric bushing that fit exactly in the hole, sized the inside of the bushing with a 1/2-inch drill bit, then cut a piece of hardened 1/2-inch bolt to length and cut a tooth into one end of it and a slot in the other end of it with a Dremel tool. Squared off the end of the broken shaft and cut a new slot into it to match the new tooth. Had to take the pump assembly apart and put it back together a zillion times to get the lengths just right, but finally it worked--and has worked for four years now. Saved close to $600 on a new one, as Kubota had discontinued the repair kits for the old one.
