I have a 1968 Case 530. It works great for small implements line a tiller or small disk/plow. I also mow around my lakes with a New Holland 450 sickle bar mower. I am having problems controlling the mower height. While mowing the mower will start bouncing up and down and I have to lower it to the ground to stop the bouncing. Is there an adjustment for heavier implements that I need to change? Anything else I should check?

Thanks, Mike

Is that a DOM tractor or Eagle Hitch? If is a DOM can you post a picture of the upper third point inner parts at the tractor. I believe there is a way to lock the DOM out for situations like yours.

Attached is a picture of the TPH on my CASE 530. It does not have a wedge assembly to lock the bracket. Is there another adjustment on the TPH I need to make for a heavier implement?

Thanks, Mike

Take a look at the backside (toward the transmission case) of the upper 3rd point bracket from the top looking down there should be a bolt securing a wedge that you can drop to lock out DOM feedback, with the wedge down it locks the sensing circuit, take a picture looking right straight down at the front side of the top bracket so we can see the area between the upper bracket and the tranny case. IF the wedge is not there look for a threaded hole where a bolt screws in to secure a bracket, I have never see one not equipped with the lockout wedge, The problem you are having is because the weight of the mower is pulling on the upper 3rd point linkage and as you move, the upper 3rd point linkage is causing the spring to compress and decompressing giving the feedback needed for the DOM valve to try to correct the height.

So tonight I removed the sickle bar mower and flushed the area behind the top mast. There was no wedge visible. After a thorough cleaning I found three pieces of the control bracket and the bolt hole with a broken bold flush with the mast. I'm guessing the bolt broke off due to age and the control bracket was crushed in the movement. Thanks for your help in understanding how this works!! I think I can extract broken bolt, but am wondering where I find a replacement control bracket/wedge?

Thanks again for the help!!

You should be able to find part nrs at the link, they will likely be Case NA but may help locating something aftermarket or salvage.

If you have a friend whocan mill a slot in a piece of metal you can very easily make a wedge that can be slid up or down this piece is not rocket science, just stops the twisting motion of the top link shaft. You may be able to fashion a clamp over on the spring rod as well, anything to stop that section of linkage from moving. Just put the weight on the hitch then clamp it fast against the spring bracket. Maybe a wire rope clamp ???

Thanks for the suggestion. I was thinking I could make one if I had the measurements....but maybe I just need to measure the gap and work from there.

Appreciate the feedback! I have been looking, but all are marked "not available" so making one will be my next option.
