I have a 1988 Kubota G6200 with a mower deck, the belly lift is not lifting the right side linkage hooked to the mower deck. The culprit is a broken linkage (fancy turnbuckle). The good news is it is half there, the bad news is it can not be repaired due to some of the linkage parts missing. Also it is 100 bucks through kubota to buy twice as many linkage parts than needed to fix it stock because they sell them in pairs... So looking for used, and looking to not spend a lot fixing it or I will be welding what is left back together with a chunk of bar stock to make a solid non adjustable linkage. Can anyone help me find one of these?

C'mon, Bite the Bullet as they say!  Get those parts, quit messing around and be back in business in short time.  Zis mean Kubota's really DO break, just like the others!  :poke:

I got a couple months before I need it, so if can find the parts used and cheaper, I'm all for that.

If you could post a photo of the parts you need I might be able to help. I have quite a few parts for the G series tractors here.

Hey Chris. I opened the manual for the G4200H that is listed on here in the manuals section. Same part from what I can tell. Anyway, took a picture of the page using my IPad. I need the 020 grouping. Technically, I have piece 030 and the bottom half of 040, but where it broke was on 040 just below jam nut 060 and that allowed turnbuckle nut 050 to vibrate off and leave with the jam nut..... So I really want to just get all of both links so that I can replace the broken linkage and then have a spare for the future. The entire lift linkage 020 is part number 70712-51120. This is the best I will be able to do until I get over my recent acquisition of a cold..... Ugh...

 Think I have a couple lift assemblies. I'll have to look and see what is out there and get back to you. I'll check my parts manuals and see if the numbers match yours.

Thanks Chris. I'm not as concerned about the part number matching as much as I am of it just fitting. I am game for any spare (small parts) components that fit a G6200H since I plan to keep it for a long time. Obviously the lift link is inconvenient, but it still mows while dragging on the ground. :D

I am already going to have to repair the pastic grill, as it is broken around the top mounting bolts. Other than that it has been well kept and maintained.

The Grills are a pain to keep in one piece. They either break from vibration or melt from the exhaust. Just the nature of the beast.

Ya, I figured such on those grills. Been trying to figure out how to make one out of a piece of aluminum, like 1/8 to 1/4 thick without it being a pain in the arse.

Sheet of 12ga aluminum, drill press with a hole saw  and a Sabre saw with a metal cutting blade and you should be able to make a pretty nice looking grill.

Ya, except for it hasn't been over 25 degrees since I brought the kubota home, so not much time to "make a pattern" and buy aluminum.

If I can remember tomorrow I will take a look and see what's out there. Looks like it is going to make it to 27 degrees ABOVE zero.  :thumbs:

Isnt it sad that we all think that 27 degrees above zero is actually warm.... I can still remember when that used to be considered the low for the day lol.

Sounds great, let me know what you find.
