One other thing Dave. Does your tractor have the helper spring attached? If not, you may want to look into purchasing one, to aid in lifting the tiller. Lifting it once or twice isn't bad, but if you are tiller a large garden, you won't be able to lift your arm high enough to pick your nose at the end of the day. I'll post a picture of one of them tonight as well, so you know what to look for. 

 

I think that it does.  I ran across that helper spring info on an old parts diagram that someone managed to sneak past the JD info Nazis.

A pic would certainly confirm my suspicions...

 

You are an awesome help on this project !

Here is the helper spring Dave. I took the picture last night and must have forgotten to post it, my bad.

Let me know if you need anything else.

 

Oh, and just so you know, there is a guy already reproducing and selling some of these parts on ebay. Just type in John Deere Hitch, and scroll down through some of the auction listings. You'll eventually come across his parts. I did a quick search and found the roller bracket, the roller, and the frame hitch mount. I know he used to make the cables, but he didn't have any listed. You could always ask him though. Just thought it might save you some time instead of making these items yourself.

 

Glad to help out!  :thumbs:

And once again, I'm not worthy...    :worshippy1:

 

I'm going to check the underside tomorrow in the daylight.  Seems to me that there are three springs under the center of it.  Brake, clutch, _____ ?

 

I did a little Ebay surfing and wasn't able to find the source that you cited for the repro parts.  Will have to dig a littler deeper tomorrow.

Turns out that I WAS missing the helper lift assist spring.  Not any longer.  Just went home at lunch and my 'new' lift spring and required mounting bracket, was waiting for me at the door step.  Tonight, she goes on ! ! !   :firejumper:

 

I soooooo want to play with the new toy....

Thanks to Troy and all the measurements, I was able to reproduce the piece that goes through the rear frame of the tractor.

 

Have a look:

Very nice job Dave! Do you have the lift cable, or are you going to fabricate that as well?

At one point, I was SURE that I had both pieces. After exhausting searches, several times... I'm convinced that they are AWOL...

If you would be so gracious, I could use a few measurements of the cable. If JD could make them, I think we stand a chance.

I finished up the pulley mounting bracket for the lift cable today and will post pics tonight, after "Dad duty" is complete...

Thanks sooooooooo much, Troy.

If you can give me until the weekend Dave, I'll try and help you out with the cable dimensions. I'll have to take it off one of the tractors, as I don't have extras of these. Depending on how you make out with fabricating these cables, I may get you to make me a couple for my stock!

Take all the time you need. Ran the MIc down the cylinder bore, and though it right on the edge of being in spec. There is a bit of " out of round" going on. Going to order a master rebuild kit and do it right.

Thanks again, Troy... What a help you have been ! ! ! !

Here are the photos of the lift cable roller bracket.  Mounts up under the seat on the left hand side of the machine.

It longer to square the holes for the carriage bolts to fit correctly, than it did making the bracket itself.  Go figure.

Here is the cable Dave. It was hard trying to take a picture while holding the cable straight, and it might not be clear as to the actual sizes, so if you have questions, let me know.

The overall length is 16".

PERFECT !   Thanks, Troy.  

 

One quick question:  The material that JD used on the barrel ends, what is it made out of?  Ferrous or non?

Diameter (outside) of the barrel is 1/2", correct ?

I have a few ideas in mind but want to make sure I know what JD used as it  has held up very well for several decades.

 

I have the 3/16 cable both covered and bare so I'll experiment with both.

I'm not sure what the material is Dave. At first I thought it was a hard lead, but I can't imagine lead being able to hold us as long as these have. It was some type of molten product that was poured into a mold and the cable stuck into it. Of all of the years that I have owned these tractors, and have used the rear lift, I have never had a barrel end come loose. The only issue I had was a cable breaking once, which broke almost dead center of the entire length.

 

As for the barrel diameter, I believe it is more in the 3/8" diameter range. I re-installed the cable again, but can take it off easily again if you need me to. Just let me know.
