I have to put a new pitman stick on my New Idea 254 sickle mower. All I can find are blanks, I now need to know how big and how deep is the spring pocket hole in the end of the stick. I also need to know if the hole is in the center of the stick.? Any help with finishing the stick will be very much appreciated. thank you Fred

Over the years I have had to use a lot of those universal pitman's on sickle bar mowers that I was rebuilding. Big thing it timing. Slide the bar in where it should be all the way in. Then get the part where the stick is pushed in as far as it will go. Measure the distance and then push the bar and drive out as far as it should be and measure again. Both should be the same. As for the spring pocket hole measure how big around the spring is and drill the hole that size or just a little bigger. As for how deep that is a try it say 1/2 inch if not right got 3/4 etc. till you find where it works.
