This Part is for ?

Recommended Posts


Cleaning out a box of junk I got when I picked up a 3416 years ago. This part was in the box. At first I thought it was for a deck idler arm (pivot "bolt"), but it's only threaded on one end, so that's not it. It's an NLA part so I can't find any info. Anyone know what it is or used for?

OK Mr Wizard, the check's in the mail. Expect it sometime, but be patient, very patient.

I knew I recognized that part and it was for a deck, just not the part I thought. I've even threaded the end to add a stop nut to stop the spring from riding up and releasing.

But how do you do it? A photographic memory? Or do you have a master part#/mfg# cross reference?

I usually use Jack's parts database to find info but he recently changed to the newer "Parts Tree" type database. The newer databases give you mfg# where the part is used, but if it's NLA, you're out of luck.

Bill, it is/was like your check, a stroke of luck.;) I did work on a 48" mower not too long ago and I thought it held the spring for the idler pulley and I knew what mower deck it was, so I took a shot, whala! Don't expect much more as I blew out most of my memory circuit breakers on that one,he,he. Cheers.

Pretty sure that was also used as the pedal stop on the early Broadmoor tractors. The 156xxx numbers were for the early Broadmoors, generally.

id="quote">Winner, winner...that's what I thought too, and you are correct. Shows up in the parts manual for these roundhood models:990287, 288, 303, 373, 374, 375, 424, 425

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
