Can someone tell me how long the control rod should be for the sickle bar. I'm missing mine but, I believe I can fabricate one. Thanks!

Total length is about 67" including the bend at the end. It has about 2 1/2" of threads at the end. The length from the end to the control handle is about 64". The bend is the same as the clutch rod but the rod is bent in the opposite way.

Thanks Giant Pumpkin Grower! What a huge help. I should be able to get some stock to bend and thread I hope.
