Picked one up with my 18/6. It's missing a couple of parts.
If anyone has some rudimentary dimensions of part numbers 15, 17, 11 in the following diagram, that would be swell.

Thanks.

If you don't have them already, here are some pictures that may help. look closely at the pictures for the measurements, since i was using the 1 foot mark on the tape as a starting point.



The main handle is 36" long, with a 4" 90 degree bend on the end. Total length of 3/8 rod needed is 40" for the handle.

the 4" bend on the upper end of the rod.

DSCF3564_zpse8d2d33c.jpg

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXx

4" flat stock on lower end of rod, for connecting the unlocking chain. notice the slight bend in it. that's factory. This piece is just flat stock, 1/8" thick, 3/4" wide & 4" long with a 3/8" hole on either end. It's welded to the control rod and the release chain hooks in the other hole with an S hook.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

The Swivel bracket on the handle, it fits loosely on the rod, and is held in place by the 2 welded washers above and below it.

My upper holder, ( #17) is homemade from an eye bolt, but this should help with the size.

Lastly, I the chain # 11 is less than a foot, get a short length of sash chain ( flat chain) at Home Depot, and play with the length

Absolutely tops!  Thank you Dave.

 

I hope you didnt go thru as many hoops as it looks like you did to get those.

 

The manual gave me a broad overview, these pics complete the picture.

 

:thank_you:

no Problem.  I actually took the pictures back in October, for someone else missing the same pieces. The blade is sitting in storage, all I did was snap a few pictures real quick.  No trouble at all.  I'm glad that they will be of some help.

Got a chance to make use of your measurements. Almost done with the construction phase :thumbs:

One question if you have time, what is the degree angle twist from the handle to the piece welded on the end? In other words, if the handle is flat on the floor, how far off the floor is the end of the flat bar?

Thanks in advance.

I won't be able to make it up to check the exact degree of twist on the handle, until this weekend.  I'm gonna say it's around 30 degrees, upward with the handle flat on the floor, but that's a guess. That's about what it looks like in the first picture also.


Looks like you've got an excellent start on the handle, it looks better than the factory piece. :thumbs:

No hurry, I can even make an educated guess once I get it on the machine. I won't be able to work on it until Sunday anyways.

I had only a few minutes of "Me and my junk" time today. Decided to work on the rear support piece that is missing from this.

Started earlier today with a piece of 5/16" rod. Measured overall expected length

Then I found a pin that was the size I wanted for the inside hole.

Now somehow I lost the next 3 pictures... I will have to describe as I can... You have seen a torch before...
You will have to use your

I heated the rod and bent it around the pin. When I was happy, I let it cool and then heated and turned the whole circle so it looked more like the end of an eye bolt than a letter p.

Then I made a bracket to mount it to the tractor and welded that to the rod.

A little sand paper, some satin black, and...

I would say you did a great job on it, but the pics are a bit dark and the black paint kind of hides it all. Could we get a couple pics with more light please? Otherwise, it sounds like you got-R-dun!

I got another pic or two of the upper bracket etc. this time in the garage...

Anyways, I really don't like the lower arm for the l-r adjustment. Keeps wanting to bind on the U bolt. I am going to live with it for now... But I see a different & upgraded control arm in the future.
