  • LH Tie Rod for '68 Lawn Ranger

    I am looking for the LH tie rod for a '68 Lawn Ranger.

    Part number is 1773.

    This one is fixed length with the ball joints pressed into the ends of the rod to make it a single unit.

    I suspect the same part was used on a lot of late '60's tractors.

    I took my info from "Tractor 1968 Lawn Ranger 1-1631 1-2631 OM IPL Wiring #317A - 318A" that had this:






    From the diagram you shared, it seems the difference between 1772 and 1773 is the orientation of the ball joints at the ends of the rod. Attach to the spindle arm upward, and left is 1773; attach downward and it's 1772. 

    So if I'm indifferent about the attaching (and I am!) then I can use either 1772 or 1773. Cool



    I can see now how the one wheelhorsepartsandmore item (here) works for both, because its ball joint ends are threaded onto the rod and can be oriented as needed. I originally thought the rods were different lengths. :)


    That's the second new thing I learned today! Great stuff, and thanks @gwest_ca!
