My steering on my 12 is gone too. I wonder if that's a common problem. Maybe we're just too strong.

I believe they are cast iron Scott, but never tested to be sure.

Usually hitting a hole or immovable object breaks them when the sector gear comes around & hits the cast in stop.

Is the metal bar on the cultivator original or is that handmade?01b79fbcab911911675143376475daa4.jpg0f2de5bfb49de66274bc2feb06caedda.jpg

 

 I believe DH1 and Oldcowhand are correct that that part is home built. Possibly as an anti-sway bar, but factory built sleeve hitches have two bolts that you tighten to eliminate sway. It may also have been part of a lift mechanism to adapt it to something other than a sleeve hitch.

Bush Hog sleeve hitches don't have those 2 bolts that stop sway.

Braze the broken part. It will be easier to do than weld.

   Cast iron is a snap to weld, just clean it really well then use mg250 stick rods. after the weld take the sharp end of a chipping hammer and peen the weld while it cools. after it cools of a bit but before it gets cold put the next pass in. when you are all done wrap it in insulation and leave it for the night.  then grind clean and go.  I woudnt mind having one for those front bumpers or even the dimensions so I could make one.

   Nice score by the way

ditto on the brazing for cast iron parts.  problem with that part is that it looks like it has been welded before, its somewhat large, and it sees a lot of stress and ultimately will likely fail again.  I assume its the same as used on the d410 and you could just swap it out from a parts unit.  quicker, easy and more reliable.

Very nice score Scott. How many more models do you need to find yet in order to make the collection complete? Can't be many more models to find yet? I'm rooting for you, and hope you'll find everything by the end of this year!

 

You keep finding these tractors, and your collection will out number mine in no time!  :smilewink:

Thanks Troy! Models I am missing: HD-10, V4-10, JB-II, I think that's it. Implements needed ST-3000 tiller, ark loader for any model, rear scrape blade, there are implements but these are the key ones I need. But I tend to like them all- I am up to multiples on most of the models I own. I have a hard time selling once they get into the yard! But I am way behind in refreshing/restoring mine!
