Those Haban Mower parts that Erwin Haban sent me came in yesterday.

That's the good news.

Bad news is that the Grass Divider Board is not the right one.

When I took it out to match up to the mower it was obvious that it wasn't right.

That had me confused, as he and I BOTH named the 'right' part number.

The one he sent seems to be for the 'larger' Sickle-Mos, including the 3-pt version.

Well Lo and Behold, I got to checking out the various Sickle-Mo manuals I have and it seems that for who knows what reason, they gave the same part number to two different parts. Odd to say the least.

Here are pics of them.

Glad to hear the parts came in, but that stinks that you got the wrong divider

I'm pretty sure that I'm going to send it back to him. No reason for me to keep it, and someone else may have use for it.

If nothing else, I can bend a piece of round stock so that it has one like the early 405 mowers had.
