on a 501 mower, what is the purpose of the push rod that clamps to the left lower link?

If we are thinking of the same rod, I believe it adds more tension to the spring that holds the bar up.

The higher you raise the three point, the more tension is applied to the spring.

I found it acts like a stabilizer bar so the thing doesn't go side to side.

Thats the right side.

ok. I thought it was something like that. Mine doesn't have the stabilizer clamp, so I use a stabilizer bar.
Thanks.

Yup, it lifts the far end of the bar, the geometry of lifting the three point puts more pressure on the linkage and spring setup. Moving the spot it clamps a half inch one way or the other affects how high the bar lifts, a little goes a long way.

Those little stabilizer deals, my mowers never had those, always used the tractor stabilizers. It is really important the three point doesn’t move side to side.
