I'm going to attempt to make a rockshaft and cable for my 312_8. Can someone please tell me the dimensions of the shaft? 

Any ideas will be appreciated. :thanks:

The axleshaft is 3/4 " with brass bushings and C-clips keeping both in place.

 

The other measurements I can find tomorrow morning (it's later evening here now) along with a few pics.

 

But most likely someone more local to you will be able to help sooner  :-)

Have you contacted Lincoln at A-Z Tractor to see if he can send you a good used one?   http://a-ztractor.com/

Sorry I haven´t gotten back to you with info yet.

 

My little girl broke her arm, and it kind of took priority and focus. I will post it before the weekend :-)

OK, so this is a pic and some quick measurements. Shoot if you have any questions.

 

rockshaft.jpg.41c52bd7647becdc0f9808a2c27c008a.jpg

 

Axle is 3/4 " and 8 inches from c-clip grove to grove

There are a bushing and a washer held in by a C-clip on each side.

The two rock arms are 6 and 4  inches long from center hole to center hole. Placed 2 inches and 3 inches in. (Ain't rocket science so there about is just fine)

You could perhaps just use one arm, with several holes in to give you adjustability.

Short arm connects to tiller or....

Long arm to lift pivot point under the tractor via wire.

 

Remember, dont need to be complicated. It's just a shaft that rotates in two bushings, with an arm to pull on, and a shorter one (or the same) that pulls in the implement. That gives you a gearing on it, and certainty where the lift wire goes. You could also use bearing blocks instead of the bushings and so on. Function over form. :-)

 

If you think it's too much to do, I think Lowell has them ready for shipping in new replica. You find him in the vendors section :-)
