having done this a number of times on tractor's , its simple and takes out all the play and sloppy fit of cotter pin mounting. pto lever to clutch disk , measure where clevis point is, cut off excess thread on threaded rod. old thread is 3/8 x 16 , grind a taper on the end of that and use a 3/8 x 24 die nut right over the old thread. its simple and easy, use a 3/8x 24 female / stud fitting ,about 7$ . screw on to rethreaded rod and adjust till lever handle stops firmly at horizontal setting. having done this on two horses now, as well as heim joints at clutch rod ends. also did this on my plow blade, went from clunky sloppy fit to smooth and solid, blade angle movement is very easy. any questions , let me know, pete

Took me a while to picture in my mind what you did, but once I got it (I think :oops: ) it sounds like a great upgrade. I'll have to keep it in mind.

hello dale, the heim joints are a perfect replacement at a number of bent rod to contact points. the twisted angles in lever ( pto engagement rod ) can be easily replaced with the smooth / solid motion of the heim joint. I also did my steering rods. once you measure the heim joint against the contact point, its easy to remove the rod , cut off the bend and thread on the joint. if I can get a picture to this site it will answer everything. by the way at about 5 $ to 7 $ each its worth it , on amazon. my dozer plow is so smooth to rotate it makes me smile every time I plow snow. two 1/2" female to 1/2" stud heim fittings. one at the rotation quadrant bottom and one at the bottom of the lever rod, used 1/2" by 24 thread rod to make it simple. I will work on the pictures, pete

Very worthwhile modifications. I know many purists wouldn't approve, but I prefer to improve upon what's there, to improve performance, rather than sticking to original just for the sake of originality. I don't have a completely stock anything! :D Thanks for the pictures, and keep up the good work.
