I hooked up a 350 sickle bar on JD 2020. Everything seemed fine until I go to hooking up lifting arm. Just bought tractor, so i"m still learning the tractor itself. Has a swinging drawbar but the lower plate holding drawbar up had bolts broken off. So where 2 pins would have gone to pin the drawbar in the center where changed out to bolts. When i pulled the bolts out, The hole thing fell a part. Putting back together right this time. Now for the real problem that i am struggling with. The drawbar sits higher then the sickle bar lift arm. What is the normal cure for this or just take off chain and mount to bottom of drawbar? Thanks for any advice.

The photo below shows the pivot arm of a JD 350 mower.

PivotArm

Notice the green chain attached to the pivot arm by a clevis.

The other end of the chain is attached to the mower main frame.

This allows the mower to be raised without using the drawbar.

Take a look at this video to see the mower setup.

Hope this helps.

You are awesome. Beautiful sickle. Enjoyed watching video.
So all you have is a chain from pivot arm to sickle frame? What is the chain going left to right between 3pt lift arms? Just wondering.
Thanks for you help

Glad you enjoyed the video; there are several other videos on my channel of the 350 mowers in action.

Yes, all I have is a chain from the pivot arm to the mower main frame.

The chain going left to right between 3pt lift arms is usually attached to the drawbar to reduce/eliminate the "sway" of the mower.

This is a 7ft mower that is used as a "backup" to the 9ft mower.

It will work like that but, unless the pivot arm is attached to the drawbar, the tip of the cutterbar won't lift first.
