Ok guys, so I'm hearing Agco is finally addressing this and supplying dealers with an upgraded bracket to replace this POS that is breaking on everybody. True or nah?
Yes but the down fall is it needs to break first before they will warranty it witch is BS i think.

Before my pick-up was off warranty I was told the slippage during shifting in the transmission was"within specs". A couple of hours up and down a steep hill with my trailer on eliminated that excuse.

To my surprise my dealer had a replacement bracket in stock -- which I suppose speaks to how common this failure is. Thankfully the replacement is indeed the newer, girthier model with the countersunk bore.

In the AGCO parts catalog I couldn't find a PN for just the bracket, only the whole joystick assembly. On my replacement bracket I see it is PN ACP0525800. Even by itself it's not exactly cheap, but I'll pick one up to keep on the shelf.

Happy hoeing, friends.
