What is this?

I picked this up this weekend at a show in Pepperell Ma. Anyway the vendor was told it was a not often found part by another tractor guy, I only need the tooth gear, and it was a set so bought both pieces. What is it?

Maybe its used to lock lift lever so your plow or whatever you are using floats and doesnt catch on something and throw you over the steering wheel,

Todd has it, it is a lift lever latch for floating, handy with rear implements too. I think they used these after the foot draggers and before they used cables and spring rods. The tractors in this era had numerous latch locking locations. I think someone back in archives had a post about these? Dan

That is a latch on a left hand large lift lever. It normally rides on a semi circular shaped quadrant, this is notched and bolted to the left side of the tractor. the lever is conncted to the rock shaft via setscrew and key. The rear lift rod has a clevis that connects to the rockshaft (inside the frame). On the right side there is a small lift lever for lifting dozer blades, blowers, etc.a smaller lever is attached to this lift lever and attaches via chain to the mower deck, or grader hitch. Wayne

It is exactly as CleanBee & GrincheyOne has said and I believe they were originally marketed for only the 3300 series Simplicity. Dan

Yeah, I have only seen it on a 3300 series. They will fit any of them - they can be handy if you need the float. That way you don't need to hold your thumb on the lift lever button the whole time. I put one on a 7016. Tim
