Well I let a friend borrow my sickle bar mower today. Well at dark he came back with it. Yep you guessed it he broke a part on it. So now where do I find a pitman arm bearing housing for one of those old things. Its the part that has 2 nubs on it and a bearing that drives the pitman. Part # 306377. I plan on checking with the AGCO dealer tomorrow but would also like a few other options

I tried a place that has been an Allis dealer for decades and they said the part is now obsolete so they can not get it and I would guess the place your talking about would be the same

Hi Old,

I bought that part a few years ago. It is (or was) still available new from a dealer. Be prepared for a price shock though. You probably can buy a whole used mower assembly for the price of that part. Things like that are brutally expensive new and usually worn badly if used. I suggest you also look carefully at the pitman straps that mate to the nubs on that housing to see if they are worn oblong. If so, I'd expect the nubs on a new housing to wear prematurely. That particular joint is one that needs to be checked frequently for proper tightness. Once slop starts to be evident, wear increases rapidly. New straps will also be extremely expensive. BTDT. Check with an AGCO dealer of NOS AC parts.

I don't know of any other options. Mine wasn't broken but the nubs were excessively worn (as were the mating pitman straps such that a tight joint could not be had. At the time I toyed with idea of a weld build-up on the nubs but the machining would be impossible for me due to the taper involved and having it done professionally would be cost-prohibitive. Of course that would still leave the wear problem with the straps. Maybe you can cobble together something but in the end, I decided to bite the bullet and buy the NOS parts since I use the mower regularly.

PS: don't forget the thin hardened sleeve in the bore of that housing that the bearing rides on. It's like a speedi-sleeve without the flange. Mine was broken into three or four pieces. That sleeve does NOT come with the housing - it's a separate part.

Call AGCO this morning, part if obsolete and can no longer be had. I remember years ago have a sickle mower that was a draw bar mount but it had the same sort of part and I had the same thing happen just wish I could remember how I fixed it then. Oh well guess if I don't find one very soon it will be something I fix the best I can and then cross my fingers that it works

Today's Featured Article - Measuring with Calipers - by Staff. The legs of inside calipers are curved outward at the extremities to facilitate measuring small holes, while outside caliper legs have a large curve inward to increase their capacity for large work. Firm-joint calipers are adjusted approximately by the hands and then set to the feel of the work by tapping them on a metal surface. It is a common practice when opening calipers by this means to tap the top of the joint. It is better, if possible, to tap the inside of the legs, as repeated blo ... [Read Article]
