Pittman arm

Postby Bob Roraback » Wed Jul 28, 2004 8:22 pm

The pittman strap on my sickle mower has been welded and looks as though it is going to fail. Does anyone know if the Pittman Strap part# MA1577 is available? I would like to be ready if it breaks. Thanks for the help. Bob Roraback

Herschel Adams listed them in their catalog about 2 years ago I don't have a newer book to see if they still make it or not, you could probably get it new at your local Case-IH dealer as well. T.J.

The pitman arm is still available through CaseIH. I think it costs about 15 bucks Canadian. If you do get one, make yourself a bunch of copies. It will be cheaper that way.

Bob, check with some of the salvage yards, such as
http://www.jptractorsalvage.com
http://www.tmtractor.com
http://www.chowntractorparts.com

Rudi, the pitman straps are the metal pieces that clamp on each side of the sickle ball.

John:

Yeah, stooopid me. :oops: Ifn I had been wearing my glasses (which are supposed to be reading glasses :roll: ) :oops: I might have noticed that little discrepancy.

Yeah, David, Tom or John and again in no particular order. I was lucky and was able to get the bearing assembly from David as well which was the one part I was missing.

I have used some old straps off of horse drawn mowers, they bolt together to hold them to the ball. Depending on what type they are you might have to custom cut the length of the pitman arm. I have some of these if you can't find replacements. Check the salvage yards you can probably find the cub type.

And don't forget making it yourself...

And then, in the *worst* of cases, when you can't find the part no matter what, but it seems like a simple thing to describe - or if you're handy with computers and drawings, there's http://www.emachineshop.com

I've used it a little bit for things around the barn that I needed for restorations, and even had some old Porsche parts re-made - cheaper than the NOS parts I could get anyway.

One-offs are more expensive than making a bunch of them, but hey - if the parts are truly that hard to find, make up a run of 20 and probably the rest of us will end up paying you good money for them sooner or later! :D
