I have a Standard Twin convertible with the sickle mower attachment but it is all apart and several parts of the mower are missing and I would like to know what the missing pieces look like so I can put it back together and bring it to shows. It is missing the PTO shaft that would go to the engine and the Pitman arm, other than that everything else looks to be there. It would be nice to get it back together. Here is a picture of the tractor. I can't get pictures of the mower it is tucked away in the back of the barn.

Here is a couple pictures of the Twin Convertible sickle bar drive shaft. Kind of dark to photo where the bar is stored.  The original shaft was supplied by Blood Brothers which was bought by Rockwell which was bought by Meritor.  Rockwell discontinued PTO shaft parts in the early 80's. Any driveshaft shop will be able to supply you with a 3/4" square shaft with 1000 series Spicer or Neapco end yokes and joints.

Thanks Cliff! I am also trying to figure out what the Pitman arm assembly looked like. I have dug the mower out of the back of the barn. Here are some pictures of the mower and where the Pitman arm would have went.

Pitman arm pictures.  This sickle drive is kind of unique because you can run the knife with the bar at any angle, even almost vertical.

No.  The Twin Convertible bar only fits the Twin Convertible.  The regular Twin had two versions of front mounted bars.  One was dead centered on the front of the tractor, and one was offset to the right side.  The power take off on the Walsh and Monarch was ninety degrees to the Twin, so the drives were completely different.  I do not know how compatible the Monarch and Walsh bars are with each other.

I would kind of like to see a video of one of these mowing some really thick stuff they look really well built. do they have a safety pin that would break if you hit something like a fence post or something?
