Bought an older 1020 22ft head but it didnt have drive shaft. Was told that 540 pto female would fit over hex shaft and work just fine. Does fit but was wondering if any one has ever done this? IH shaft is $550.00 Can buy one with 540 on both ends for $199.00 What do you guys suggest?????????

That's a good fix to limp by for 2-3 hours until the part gets to the field, but not good for a way to run the header all the time.
Any slop at all will accelerate wear, and due to the pressure points because they weren't made to run like that it will probably mess up the shaft and coupler such that the correct parts won't fit.

i dont know it might work but i would think there would be some slop between the splines of the 540 shaft and the hex shaft and if there was slop would it wear out either part faster? if it fits snuggly i wouldnt be afraid of trying it but ive always said it only cheap the day you buy it
