I wonder how different it is from the original 20 series tractor. I have a old left hand tie rod that is not to bad of shape. The old right hand one I have is junk. If you think it will work you are welcome to it.
Thank you K5lwq,
I was aware of an upgrade, I have not upgraded though.
I did do a cheat, several years ago, I added a washer under the nut, which removed most of the slop for a while anyway.
I really need both sides, Thanks for the link.
I may take the ball joint to some auto parts suppliers, if I could get the correct taper, I may be able to do a bit of cut and weld…
I really want to move up to a 240v mig one day, currently I make due with a Lincoln gas mig 110v.
Yep, “what ever it takes sometimes“, Did allow me to get the tractor out of my brothers driveway, where the tie rod snapped on him.
Yes, not cheap by any imagination. The thing that happened to me was they kept sending me left side knuckle arms and no right side. So I paid the $700 and yet to receive a right knuckle arm. I had my old one machined to accept the new tie rod. I am told they will send the right side when they get it in but I doubt they will ever ship it.
Ugg, hate to hear that K5lwq (for both of us), I bit the bullet and order the upgrade kit. I hope it’s not like the HYD pump gear I ordered that took quite a while to get, or a mismatched kit like you received.
