4041 control rod bushing needed

Recommended Posts


Hi Guys 

Does anyone know where I can get( Simplicity 2172949) its the bushing that goes in the control rod for the hydro

mine is bad and the tractor will start to inch forward o its own when in neutral.

I checked a few places on line and it says its no longer available!!

Thanks G

If I remember correctly, the two that are located in the control rod maybe the same as the two that are located in the rear PTO/engine coupler.  Those are 2177943SM.  I replaced all of mine with new in 2008 but obviously they were still available then.  If not the same part # they still may work.  They also may be close to the same configuration as the 1650592 - Cam Roller used on the Sovereign Sundstrand Hydro unit control group.

I hope this helps.

Me, you and every body else with a powermax if anybody finds a bushing please tell I think I used a cut 3/8 pvc tubing and then slid the next size pvc tubing over that to fill the void, obviously not a permanent solution I gotta do my 620 yet I’ll see if that bushing Shawn’s talking about works.  None  of mine have anything left of the bushing I don’t even know what it looks like was it rubber Shawn

      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!😁
