B212

I am looking for replacement ball joints for my 212. The joints are part number 2164272SM according to Jacks Small Engines for the Simplicity OEM ball joint. The part is $32 a piece. Is a generic ball joint that can be used for these tractors? I see that Jack's has generic ball joints that are for under $10, but I am unsure of the threading and size

I found this website... http://www.midwestcontrol.com/turbosearch.php I assume that I need female joints, but the threading is confusing me as I can not find anything in the parts manual.

sounds like the best idea is to take one off and take it to your farm store .... i know the MF16 uses the same ones as my 3/400's sould be pretty standard...

I dont have a farm store... The closest thing that I would have is a Tractor Supply. They would have no clue as to what I was even talking about.

I think the thread is 7/16-20 but don't quote me on that, regardless or where you find them they'll probably be more than $10 each. The cheaper ones commonly used on MTD's are much smaller.

Any NAPA auto parts can get them. They list 5 options. The 7/16X20 RH thread on male/female is Part #7-07492. 1/2"X20 RH thread M/F both ends is Part #7-07494. Some have LHand thread on Female end on one side, not sure what Simplicity did.

Tip: If the back joint is falling off from being loose, switch the front to the back, the back always wears more, and gravity will (mostly :D) hold the front one in place.
