Well, I have had no trouble finding new sickle sections, so don't know why anyone would mess with trying to use some that aren't right.
My helper spring broke, so I discarded it. I was able to do that since I use a 2 way cylinder on mine. I think the use of a 1 way cylinder required the use of the spring. The system is hydraulic force to cable, so the do nothing cylinder travel has to do with taking the slack out of yhe cable. There should be some slack when on the level, because the slack allows the bar to go further down such as trying to mow a road side ditch.

Well Red its like this, my friend, and neighbor got killed 17 months ago, and offered his family to take care of his ditchs, i had a IHC pull type swather for years with extra parts,i am mowing his ditch for nothing and got lots of IHC section's left over,they are so close to fitting,but i did find out New Holland offers bolts now instead of rivets,I guess the Engineers make it that way to aggreivate us farm boys! He had a two way cylinder on it!

If that is really a NH 456 mower someone has screwed with it big time,the cylinder should be out on the frame hooked to a cable to raise and lower the mower frame and cutter bar.2 way cylinder works just fine.Also NH 456 doesn't use a pitman drive its a belt drive system.Get an operators manual will clarify a lot of things for you.
