60" mower idler lever

Recommended Posts

It looks like I need to fabricate an idler lever arm for my "new" 60" deck (for Power Max). Part #28 in this picture, Simplicity #172601. Does anyone have a deck open who could provide dimensions between the pulley hole and pivot point, and pulley hole and spring? (approximate is fine)

I found a couple of them online, $51-54 + shipping. I did verify the price with a reliable dealer. For $50 I'll fabricate it. It doesn't show anyway, and I'm in a rush.

Looks like 4 inches from pulley bolt to spring attaching point and 3 3/8 inches from pulley bolt to pivot bolt. Tried to measure the angle and came up with 43 degrees.

Thanks, Paul! you did a fair amount of work there. And thanks to Brenda at SLI too, for additional information. I'll work on it later today. Money for tractor parts always seems tight, which is to say I continually over spend my tractor budget. Probably doesn't happen to the rest of you. Don
