Well we got moved and everything pretty much settled in. Mainly is my garage is back in order. although a foot or so smaller.

Now for a bit of in formation.

What are the dimensions of the lockout rod for the rockshaft on my JD314 with single hyd? I was told I need one to operate my snow blade. I would like to make my own and I'm guessing you adjust with rockshaft in up position

Thanks for any help

Welcome back Larry. It's good to hear that the move went OK.  The lockout rod is a 3/8" partly threaded rod with a clevis (yoke) on one end and a square plate on the other. The clevis fastens with a 3/8" pin to the same hole the lift rod goes into. You retract the cylinder and then the force of the hydraulic pressure pulls on the rod. The rod is really strong in tension so it won't bend or break. The other end of the rod has a piece of square plate that sits in the slot in the rear plate. I've never seen a factory part but it would be easy to make. Just use 3/8" threaded rod. I'd use grade 5 if you can get it. You could even use 2 nuts to secure the plate at the right spot and wouldn't need to weld anything. Then just cut off any extra threaded rod and you're done. I need to make one for my 317 for use with the 49 snowblower I have.

 

Heres the diagram from JDParts

Thanks Brian. I found that part finally in JD parts. I just wasn't looking in the right place or name. But I was hoping for dimensions but you were a great help there, thanks.

Thanks to everyone for the welcome back.

Larry, if you use treaded rod you can just get a length of it and cut it to length. For the plate on the back I'd guess it would be 2" or so square. Something like at least 1/4 or 3/8" plate should be strong enough.

I hate moving. If I ever move again I hope I am rich where I can just buy new stuff and leave everything here.
