My tractor is in WI, me in IN. My drag link part # 711-0455 on page 35 of owner's manual/parts list. If someone could tell me the size of the ends threads and length of just the rod or close if you have joints on them would be great. I would like to make one up to take back at pick-up time. Wondering if welding a pipe over it would beef it up? OR, welding proper size bolts to end of larger pipe or rod would work better? I have steering linkages/bearings soaking in oil, hope some gets in and turns easier. The stock rod is bent because of hard turning and hit's stop before you can turn left and has "spring" action to it.

Sorry I didn't see this earlier. McMaster-Carr has the parts you can use to make up a beefier drag link. I don't have the specific part numbers, but you can look at their site and figure it out pretty easily.
