I also have an older 1209. A couple years ago I needed a new sickle and sicklehead. The only way the unit came was the newer style and you had to change pitman arm and all. I could still get the old style sickle head and the bare sickle bar(no sections)so I did that as I didn't want to spend big bucks to update. I don't see why it would cause a problem though. Does the pitman arm adjust up and down where it hooks to wobble box like on old style? The 2 bolts that hold pitman arm have to be kept really tight(torqued)

Thanks for the quick reply. The new pitman arm attaches to the yoke with a single nut - I think its the same for both styles of Pitman arms. It looks as though its possible to set the height based on how tight the nut is. Which two bolts are you referring to on the pitman arm?

Height is not set by how tight the nut is. It has to be TIGHT, but I do not know the torque!

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

This is the old style knife drive arm that hayfarmer referred to. IS the knife drive TIGHT on the wobblebox shaft?? Also does the knife drive pin fit tight in wobblebox drive arm?
