Got a used 7140 rt axle shaft to try on the 5488. Side by side, same length, outer yoke splined end same. Slid into axle, looks good. Will know for sure next week when the rest of the parts come in, but looks like it will work. 

If you just need an outer yoke, looks like you could use one off a Magnum. U joint cups are same od, you would just need 2 of the external snap rings. ( 88 used internal snap rings, Magnum used external )

Update - We got the front planetary back together, got tractor out of shop sat. Axle shaft worked great, direct replacement with no modification.  Had delay because when planet gears came from hycapicity they had rust and 3 had pits on inside. Got 4 replacement from hycap fri, 2 of them had pits, dad honed one enough to use it. Gears were made in USA, looks didn't get coated good before being boxed up. Hycap was good to deal with, no hassles return.
