Does anyone have a good picture of how the sway control chains mount on one of these tractors?

I thought I had one, must be on the pc that crashed. There is a tab that is on the same pin as the lift arm that the chain is welded to then runs over an adjuster on the other arm. I will try to get a pic this week.

Im pretty sure they crisscross then mount in your lower arms where your pins go threw. Sorry i dont have a pic of it.They mount on the inside of the arms against the frame. I hope this helps. :thumbs:

Thanks, that helps a lot, I think I'm going to modify this and just use an eye bolt in place of the tab and turnbuckle.

I currently have 3' of chain with tabs welded to each end, I will cut two sway chains out of that, all my adjusters with be a eye bolt through the arm with a jam nut on each side of the arm, simple yet effective.

I keep thinking I want to build a right sway chain so I have a matching set. But what I got does the job and its not on a show piece.

Mine won't be 100% correct, but they will look good, this tractor will see a few shows.
