    That would work well, especially if you have to drill holes for it, as you can drill to fit. The OP should still find out the correct procedure for the unit...

    I have an older JL 306 made between '79 and '84 I believe. It doesn't have any mechanism to attach the cable to the drum. There also is no complete manual available from what my local (Northeast Implements) parts source says. They have patched together some pages from manuals but there is no page dealing with attaching the cable. Also no info on servicing the drum and main sprocket bushing/bearings which is a whole other story.

    It sounds like my best bet is to do the drilling procedure for the U-clamp bolts and leave the saddle off as suggested. Thanks for the advice everyone. Now for a post on another problem I'm having with rebuilding this ole timer.
