I'm looking at buying this machine. It needs a new pitman rod and possibly draw bar.
Anyone know where to buy them?
Also, there is this one rod attached to the cutting blade bar since no and is currently stuck in mounting hole to keep blade up. Where does it really belong? Is it possibly the draw bar?

B.W. Macknair and Son in Lewistown Pa. has a web site thats shows parts that he has for sale for the # 9 mower.

As has already been mentioned, B.W. Macknair is the place from which to order parts. That rod, which is stuck in the cutter bar, is there to keep the cutter bar up. When lowering the bar, one must first loosen the nut on the end of the rod and then let the bar down, being careful of your fingers. Many mowers had a clip on the tongue or on the hitch to hold this rod while mowing. Mine just lays back toward my feet but someday I hope to make a clip for it. Lynn Miller has a great book out on the subject of restoring mowers and it is available form the Bookstore on this site. It is well worth having if you plan to rebuild or use one of these mowers.
