Have late model Plastic Kings and need a lift bar/link for same. maybe metal tractors have it if 81 or newer? Is 3/4 to 1" pipe with two U-shaped yokes on it. Both ends have yoke with bolt or pin holes. Might even have slight bend in it. Anyone have an extra to sell? I might have old fashioned one with the spring on one end to trade, but it has been lengthened I guess, not stock. Don't have that yet, future aquisition.

Yeah JL, that is it! Some even have a slight bend in them to clear an item under frame on later models. OK, if you can measure that might be good. Measure the plain center rod, then center to center on the yokes, length of yokes, and size of stock used for them, size of big holes in ends. Thanks. Wanna post that here or can email me or private message.

JD, that's really good. That will work and allow me to maybe make one. Not sure I can get that crazy bend in the yokes, but can make squarish one's work I believe. Thanks for that info!
