Hey everybody. I need some ball joint ends in 5/16 and 7/16. Know where to get them on the internet, but does anyone know of any of the chain hardware, auto, whatever store that may have them in stock? Really don't want to wait... and really would like to see them in person. Tractor supply had one kind (for MTD) 3/8... of course...

Thanks!10-2208.jpg

TSC also carries them, possibly Lowes also.

Guess I should have been more specific. Looking for the ball joints themselves - not the tool to separate them. Will try to ACE "do it best" have one of those locally.

AS olcowhand replied, TSC (tractor supply) was them for about $15.00 a pair. Saw them last week here in Ohio.

Some tractors have left and right threaded ends and some just use all right handed. I found that out the hard way.

I got the ones they had for MTD and they turned out to be 7/16. Turns out I needed a pair of 3/8 and a pair of 1/2. I ordered them online and they should be on my doorstep when I get home tonight. Thanks for the thought, though.

Don't listen to Oscar the Grouch. He's been hanging out in the garbage can too much.

But seriously, I ordered them off mfgsupply.com and they are just the ticket.

Had just enough time tonight to try them out.
Before going to see our football team play at the high school and they're really not doing well this year. But on the good side, the band played well.... And our daughter's in the band.
