If I had one of those Eaton's I'd mail you a pin, but I don't have any Eaton's on the place these days.

My body is asking for a break.

 

12800280_922259621176559_896696678408845

After Heath's speech therapist left we loaded up and headed off. 

 

CherryBerry was low of gas so we stopped at a Race-Trac to fill up. I didn't realize how low it was and I don't think I could have made it to another one. 

 

We went inside to get a drink and soon found out that the credit card system was having a moment. I had to wait. It took them about 20 minutes to get it rebooted. New software. They said the old software worked perfectly. 

 

Once we finally had fuel (14.8777 gallons in a 15 gallon tank) we headed up to get the last tractor. It was a Troy-bilt that still had the tag on the ignition switch. IT was hardly used. 

 

We stopped at Lowe's and I got a Porter Cable cordless drill and impact set. then off to the car wash to blast the dust and crud off the TB.

 

 

We headed home and I got to work. I pulled the Power King out and it fired right up. Something in the wiring is messed up and the electric clutch and the electric lift are not working. I am going to list it as is tomorrow. My hands are hurting too bad to mess with wiring. I did verify that the clutch will engage if you jump a wire to it. It will not take power from its switch though.

 

By the time I was finished tinkering with the PK Steph got home. 

 

We tried to start the TB, but it wouldn't start. I acted like the engine was frozen. I couldn't turn it. Once I verified that the starter did work I put a breaker bar on the engine. It tried to turn. I looked under it and found that the deck is frozen. Since it was used so little it has probably been sitting for long enough for the belt to have stuck to the pulleys. 

 

Once I took the deck belt off it did start. 

 

Then I decided to go for broke and see why the JD had not throttle response. The short answer is I didn't hook it back up. Duuh. 

 

Once I fixed my mistake it came down off the stand. It will do a wheelie. Kind of fun to play with. I decided to list it for sale as is. If it doesn't sell I will paint it and put a new hood on it and lest it for more. 

 

The guy gave me a bagger that he said fit the TB. It didn't. It did however fit the Huskey LE after I turned the bottom part around the right way. 

 

Tomorrow I have to see if the Huskee will start and get the deck on the TB freed up. Hopefully I will only need a spindle and a blade for the Huskee. 

 

I also have to find out if the Murray will start with a new starter on it.

I see that. I wonder why there is not reply for it.

 

At this point I would buy a whole charge pump if it was priced right.

Does anybody have a part number for the pin? I looked in the service manual and couldn't even find a good pic. what's so special that it can't be made? I'm sure it has to be super hard but is there anything else? Any good picture of the part with dimensions?

I couldn't find part #'s or a good pic of the pin either.  What I have seen looks as though it's cylindrically shaped to where it lays flat in a rounded cut on both the shaft & carrier.  But yes, if we had dimensions, I'm sure it could be fashioned from a large needle bearing.

I have a complete Eaton/Peerless from a Ford YT tractor. Hate to part it though.

All I can tell you is it is pretty small. It fell out and we never saw it. I have thought of trying to find a drill bit that is the right size and taking it down to my friends shop to get him to make me something. I would be afraid of the bit shattering or something stupid if I used a cut off piece of one. 

 

 

 

 

KennyP if you just surrendered an FF to me it would solve a lot of problems. LOL

In diagrams, it appears only about 1/4" long by maybe 3/16" thick.

I wonder if you could make it out of a piece of steel key stock and then heat it and quench to harden? they also make a roundstock I think is called drill rod that is hard and polished but it is round. You could always grind it flat.

Trying to visualize this, is the cut round or flat or some of both?

From what I can tell it is perfectly round. I contacted Eaton a while back and they have no records of it and no part numbers. The joys of having an old machine.
