Question for the two wheel tractor guys - I was given a David Bradley sickle bar mower (5753) that was attached to a tractor (5751) and would like to know if any parts are still available for the mower, specifically the trunnion bearing (PN 4637M) and the knife sections (PN 4565M)? It looks like the bearing is still available from Sears Parts Direct with a substitute part number of STD315266 and a price of $33.00. Is this the best option for this bearing?
Also, the knife sections seem to be hard to come by. Any one have advice on the best options for these? Can the originals be sharpened as long as not alot of material is removed?
I would like to redo the mower but feel that these are going to be the hardest parts to come by...thanks for the help in advance.
