Hey, the original round tube on the tractor hitch to clamp on mower mounts are very loose on my #5 mower. Appears there was a rubber bushing in there of some sort. Went down to my local JD dealer and asked and the guy looked at me like I had antenna growing out of my head. Any body else have this problem and is there some repro part or something I can use to take up the slop?

The hard rubber mounts are still available from JD and are quite reasonably priced. Have your JD Dealer Parts guy pull up a parts catalog for a # 5 mower and he will find them.

If for some reason your JD parts guy is still seeing antennas, just holler and I'll look up the part number for you.

The No.5, 8, and 38 mowers use the same setup.
It's a thick rubber piece with reinforcing cords in it.. Two for each side, one on top, one on bottom. I get mine at the local JD dealer. Better try your dealer again.

The originals for a round bar were some sort of black hard material- perhaps hard rubber. For replacement, if you have a bandsaw, white oak probably would make a quite satisfactory substitute. Use ordinary grease on the oak, the rubber ones might be better with silicone grease.

I don't know about the #5... (I'm assuming you must have a late model one), but my #8 uses inserts made of rubberized belting in the clamps to take up the slop... perhaps yours is similar?

Ask to look at the parts book yourself (or the 'puter screen.
