Hello! I have a John Deere 2320 SCUT, and I just recently noticed my rear Quick Hitch was sitting crooked. So I took a look and found that a small "hook" was broken on this part below the PTO. I can't figure out what this part is. Here is a picture of it:
(broken "hook" circled in Red, the whole part circled in Green)
I called my local John Deere dealer, and they told me I'd have to replace the entire assembly, including the black sway bars and threaded rod connectors... the whole dang thing. I couldn't believe that I'd have to replace the entire thing, just to get that one little piece. This is what they sent me, and said I'd have to replace this WHOLE THING (circled in red) I was like NO WAY, just for that little part?
I'm hoping I can get some better direction on here... if I can find this part by itself, or do I have to literally purchase the entire thing? If I can get that part specifically - what is called? What is the part number!?
Thank you in advance!
