#2 in picture

Postby JSTRICKLAND » Fri May 10, 2019 9:18 pm

What is used to make the connection here? It appears to be going through the square hole for cultivator attachments. What goes in here? I am referring to the 1A-60 leveling and grader blade manual found in Quick links. I can not copy and paste page 5 from manual. Please post a picture what you are using.

Thanks
James :lost:

As I recall, there are two square pieces that fit in the socket. There is a hole in the center. One goes in each end. A tubular spacer fits between the 2 square pieces to keep them at the ends of the socket. A big bolt goes through from one end to the other, going through these 3 pieces and the brackets for the plow.

where can I find a picture of these items? And I have extra cultivator inserts could these be cut and tapped for this purpose?
Thanks for the quick response Jim.

TM Tractors has this under their implement pictures...if you scroll down, there is a sketch of the blocks with the bolt. (Second to the last sketch...an exploded parts diagram)

Oops! Just as I hit SUBMIT, I saw this was not for the cub...decided to leave it...maybe it will help anyway. Sorry.

Did a quick search and this isn't a closeup, but it does show the blocks & bolt. Hope this one helps.

BTW, I'm probably missing something, but I don't see a picture or a #2!! :?

Dale,
It was in the quick links up top. I could not get to load to my computer, but you are on target.

Thanks

I have one in back of my barn. It’s pouring out so maybe tomorrow I’ll go back and take pics and measurements for you.

James sorry I took a little longer to get the pics, its been pouring rain for the last couple of days and today the sun decided to make an appearance. Finally ! :worthy:
I guess I'm kinda solar powered as on days like that I find it tough to get motivated to do much of anything. :roll:

Ok here is what I have...
Image

The square blocks are 1-1/2" wide and 5/8" thick.
Image
Image

The spacer pipe is 10-1/2" long and has a 1-3/8" outer diameter.
I'm sure black pipe will do fine as a replacement.
The rod/bolt length on mine is 19" long and 3/4" in diameter. You can see in the pic that the threads had been buggered up so a hole had been drilled and a pin used to secure it in place. Don't know if chasing the threads will do it and finding a replacement isn't going to be the easiest but I'll figure something out.
I'll consider myself very lucky to find a plow this old though somewhat rough but having all the small parts.

Below is a shot of the top link which is 48" in length. If you need more detailed measurements on this or anything else let me know.

Incidentally you can see how rough the plow is in my pictures above.
Yours may be less than perfect too. :D
Below is a shot of a Lo-Boy blade that I cleaned up recently for my neighbor which was in similar if not worse condition.
When your dealing with heavy iron like this it's never beyond restoration!

It does take a lot of parts and work though. :wink:
