You have hit on a real problem. I have been unable to locate sections or guards. Here is what I know: The mowers were made by Haban Corp. of Racine WI which is now out of business. The sections are 1.5" compared to normal 2" width. The rivets are also smaller. Supposedly the "Jari" brand mower uses the same sections but different guards, but I have been unable to locate a stocking dealer. One person stated that Ford used the same guards on some of the old "Dearborn" mowers made back in the 1940's and 1950's, but I have been unable to get a dealer to confirm that. Also, there are "Troy-built" mowers around which may use some of the same parts, but the only stocking dealer I know of said he knows nothing about parts for the sickle bars. Let me know if you have any other information.

Steve, FYI, I have converted my Simplicity sickle bar to use standard available sickle knives and rock guards. The conversion consists of fabricating new parts. Give me a few days to gather some information.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
