Drawbar bracket repair, am I OK with the fix??

Postby Buzzard Wing » Sat May 20, 2006 12:21 am

Didn't notice the repair until after it came back from sandblasting.... I suspect it will be fine, but thought I would ask. I am not too likely to do a whole lot of drawbar work, at least in the near future.
What do you think??

Hey BW. I ran out to the barn and grabbed one of my plates to take a look. You should be just fine. Pushing or pulling on the drawbar will only torque against the main body of the plate and not the little ear that's repaired. Look's like there's enough weld to me. Rick

I would just replace it they are a lot cheaper than a final drive housing.
If you have the tractor it came off I would take a real close look at the finals for problems as you don't break that thick of metal with out something went wrong.
If it's been broken I did it.
If its not broken wait till I touch it.

I think Dale's right after re-thinking my answer. Just replace it then you don't have to worry about it again. Thanks Dale, Rick

Depends on the equipment you have for welding. I would weld it and grind it back to the proper dimensions.

It's not the Equipment so much as it is the one who welds.

Usually I look things over pretty well when I take stuff apart... But the first thing off was the mower and drawbar.

There is nothing obviously wrong with the finals. I did put em on the tractor after replacing the seals and beaings, and since I didn't have a 5/8 tap I didn't chase the holes then. I got the tap a little while back and just haven't done it yet. I did run the drawbar bolts through the bench grinder today and noticed one of them had some smushed (technical term) threads. This Cub has a Woods 59 and the bracket/hitch attaches differently than a C-2 (that one uses the same bolts as the drawbar) so the forces are a bit different. I suspect that someone hit something with the mower and snaped the ear off??

I will run a tap through the holes and take a better look.... but guess I should reconsider using that plate.

Thanks for the answers.
