Hey, Brian!  I know I'm late to respond to this since I've been out of town all last week, but if you need a replacement pivot yoke there, I have a few of them that were in the "mystery box" I got with my latest EK-10 buys.  I think there might be even one NOS one in there, but there are also 2-3 good fixed ones in there as well.  They look to have been professionally repaired as they were completely re-welded properly and then cleaned up and look to be almost lathed down to stock specs.  I mean they look like brand new but you can see the coloration in the metal where it was welded up.  I'm betting they were either MIG welded with gas shielding or maybe even TIG welded.  I can shoot you some pics if you're interested.  If you would rather replace it than try to weld it yourself, it's a good way to go.  Otherwise, good luck with your fix, I'm sure you'll do a much better job than the last person who tried fixing it!  :D

 

 

I may take you up on your offer for one.

This one Broke right off. To fix it the right way you would almost have to get the broken piece out and turn down a new piece of stock then thread the end like the original.

 

Whenever you get a chance shoot me a PM with a pic & Price for one of them.

 

I had to put the deck on the 1050 to finish the lawn... After 2 years of mowing with the EK's I had to get used to the turning radius on those tube frames!

This would have been a whole lot more fun if the driveshaft would have stayed with the rear half and started whipping around when the separation took place.  I'd be counting my lucky stars, maybe even buying a lottery ticket.

 

I have a NOS yoke if you need it.

Just now catching up on some posts that were sent to my e-mail. Sorry to hear of your problems Brian. As everyone knows,nothing breaks down close to the shop. The rollers you made in one of the pics look fantastic. You must be a master of all trades. I know you will keep us updated on your progress. Hope everything goes smoothly.

Sounds like me!

The sheds and garage are getting full and I have to watch what I buy.

I'm trying to keep my promise of having no running tractor outside :D

Should have the EK10 up and running this weekend

Just got the yoke back from my uncle who milled down the old broken welds and re-welded the shaft on both ends :dancingbanana:
