Need some little things for tractor now. I see foot pads ln the parts book. What you guys suggest I get for those? Think I want those kind that are like sandpaper, not ribbed. Is that a safety anti-slip or ?? Would like it too be self stick then. Need a rubber boot for shifter. Think one on mine was just an IH one. That what's used or is there actual WH one available? I have found the plastic hub caps and some decals, so good on those.

I do need the mower lift link that goes from mower to the lift arm tab. OR, if someone could get me dimensions and size of rod, might be able to find that special threaded adjuster in Mcmaster site and make one. Tractor didn't have one when bought and my new deck didn't have with it either. I see it in the parts book.

Lowes, HF, and several other places sell the sandpaper non-slip stair tread pieces. No help on the other parts.

Have the rubber boot brand new and I am pretty sure the lift linkages you need.

Look on page 21 of the manual I posted on the "springs" question you asked....It shows the lift mechanism....You can then see what you have, what you need, and what you can make/find locally.

I used the sandpaper type material on the footrest of my 312-8 and it works really well!
