Took the mower off the G this weekend to check it out. A few weeks ago I tried the mower on a short run, the pitman jumped off the ball and somehow nailed the ground or something and broke the arm Went to the hardware store and sorted thru their pitman arms and bought one that was too long but I can shorten (making them longer I guess is tougher).
My qwestion is the ball/knife end of the pitman looks nothing like the manual. It is just two straps that evidently are tightened on the ball with two bolts. One of the bolt holes is cracked thru and the strap on one side is bent, so that is probably why it came off the ball. There is no spring or cam like the picture in the manual.
So is this a later version of the ball end or did someone lose/discard the spring and cam mechanism? I can't see how it would stay tight. Does anyone have a source for these end parts?
cheers,
Creek

The pitman arm is 26" long. I have the end that fits over the ball on the sickle mower, but do not have the spring required and special wrench it calls for. Tractor Supply has a variety of pitman arms. I used the end from a horse drawn mower on my pitman which works fine.

Thanks Darryl I am checking with my "local" (they are about 4 hours away) dealer for parts, hoping he can put me on to a substitute end.
