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

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
