Decided with the good warm weather may as well get started on the no.8. Sickle mower project today need to replace the pitman stick straighten the sickle bar itself and also make a hitch to attach the 3 point hitch of a modern tractor and get a new tire and then we can cut some hay

Several suggestions. Have someone make a few new pitmans and keep at least one on hand at all times. Hickory was always my favorite. Don't pass up on a belt driven mower, or even a side mounted mower. You'd fall in love with a side mounted....

I've never seen one around here sickle mowers just don't exist I'd like a side mount I bet that would be nice to cut hay .the local bomgarrs supply has a whole big stock of pitmans in stock I'd like to find more of the ends so if one breaks I could just swap it out

The mower doesn't have double guards on it like the new ones in the photo, does it? Aren't they singles?

If you ever make it up to SE Washington I would make you a good deal on a parts mower, main casting was broken when prior owner tried using it to pull a dead tractor by hooking to it. Looks like it was a good mower prior to that, wrong color for any of my projects.

Was looking at the bar and was wondering how you get the turtles on there? Seems to be missing the gearbox and the knives and the curtain over the top! LOL Just teasing!

Several years ago restored a #5 mower used it once to let all the new parts learn each other. Always liked this machine once adjusted they cut great and sound good doing it. Have fun with your rebuild.

Looks like the cutter bar has right much of a bow,when you're not using the mower stack 2 or 3 weights on the bow in the bar it'll help straighten it over time.

Keep an eye out for parts on eBay. Several straps on there now. Don't forget jdparts.com. It surprises me the parts they still stock for all my old stuff.
