Note: This does not include a wrist pin or wrist pin nut. The bushing and single bearing style will use the original JD wrist pin Z6722. The newer double bearing will require JD Z2139 and wrist pin nut M91-1/2
The Amish have adapted the more economical IHC Pitman straps, latch, and spring on these units. They will no longer include the original J.D. spring release lever and may need some modification to fit the J.D. sickle head
Our Amish companies have been making replacement and sourcing parts since 1950 for what many consider antique or junk farm machinery today. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, just about every farm used the same farm equipment providing ample outlets for replacement parts. As most farmers modernized through the 1900s the Amish still depended on the horse-drawn equipment as many still do today.
Since this equipment is no longer being manufactured and dealers are no longer stocking parts it becomes difficult to keep this old vintage farm machinery operational. Both Amish and vintage farm machinery implement enthusiasts scour junkyards, farms, and tree lines in search of these long-abandoned implements for restoration.
Cottage Craft Works.com travels deep into the back roads to find Amish companies who are still making the replacement parts to maintain and restore this old-time horse-drawn farm machinery.
