Several suggestions. Have someone make a few new pitmans and keep at least one on hand at all times. Hickory was always my favorite. Don't pass up on a belt driven mower, or even a side mounted mower. You'd fall in love with a side mounted....

I've never seen one around here sickle mowers just don't exist I'd like a side mount I bet that would be nice to cut hay .the local bomgarrs supply has a whole big stock of pitmans in stock I'd like to find more of the ends so if one breaks I could just swap it out

At least the knife ends are the same as the horse drawn mowers dating back to the 30's and are easy to get. Crank end is probably same but new after market are avaible as greasless units. All I would have to do for thoe parts is gi see my Amish friends and they would be way cheaper than any place else. The teeth for a hay rake are 2/3 price from Deere.

I cannot see a side mount working in hay as no way to make a clean 90 degree turn with them, you would have to raise bar circle to left and drop bar. The mower you have will if you get turn made correctly cut everything without raising the bar. As for the grass poard possibly depending on just how it is made at bolt to keep it from dropping down when bar is raised. There are new steel universal boards being made and used on both JD and IH and you can buy them cheaper than new old stock wood boards as those are wanted by people restoring a mower for show and therefore will pay a premium to get what they want.

If you ever make it up to SE Washington I would make you a good deal on a parts mower, main casting was broken when prior owner tried using it to pull a dead tractor by hooking to it. Looks like it was a good mower prior to that, wrong color for any of my projects.

Several years ago restored a #5 mower used it once to let all the new parts learn each other. Always liked this machine once adjusted they cut great and sound good doing it. Have fun with your rebuild.
