Oops there went my PTO pivot bar assembly

Recommended Posts

Ok, I made the mistake of tightening the nut on the PTO pivot point just a bit too tight. It was popping out of being engaged, so I thought if I just tightened it a bit I'd be ok. Well, it seemed to work a bit tighter and instead of me waling up to the garage and grabbing the 9/16" wrench I thought I'd just force it and then finish mowing. Well, the bolt that is welded to the pivot bar assembly broke off. Doh! So, I'm going to call around a couple of local dealers tomorrow and see what kind of luck I have, but if anyone knows of a machine that they are parting out and can sell that part let me know. The part number I have looked up is a 157233 (from the 990468 manufacturer number - it's an hydrolift converted to manual) since I'm using it as a manual lift a 154362 may also work. I've attached a picture of the broken part. Thanks! [url="pop_download.asp?mode=Edit&dir=johninmi&file=419"][/url][url="pop_download.asp?mode=Edit&dir=johninmi&file=420"][/url]

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
