Hi there I just got back from picking up a sickle bar and got it all mounted up on the B12 and made the setup to hold it up with a chain and since my B12 has the hydro lift I need the longer belt would anyone have the correct part # for the belt that I need since the tractor has the hydro lft is 4 inchs longer

The hydro lift has no effect on the belt length The 4" difference is the frame length between the B12 and the B-112 from the BGB back. The B12 is 4" shorter than the B-112.

well do you guys put any type of oil or spray on your bars to keep them from rusting up when not in use for say winter storage?? If so what would be the best to use ??

I just clean it after use and run oil down it while it's running. Once it's unmounted I will then oily rag it around. Haven't had a rust problem yet.

any suggestions on where to get a parts list/diagram for the sickle? I have a broken part (now that I just learned about the 1/4 throttle advice).

Thanks. It is the crankshaft (101006) which is broken. It appears to be cast iron - better to try and locate one somewhere (where?) or repair or have a new one machined somwhere?

I have a bunch of odds and ends sickle parts remaining. Shoot me a PM (with a picture of the broken piece) and I will see if I can help.
