Yesterday I broke the metal ball joint that attaches the under seat threaded rod to the seat itself. I can't see where the broken ball socket was on the seat and I cant find an exploded parts document. Does anyone have the 260 swivel seat diagram that comes with the 260?

The opposite end broke on mine. I noticed it a few of months ago when installing those great seat springs psrumor made. I have not fixed mine yet. I was going to take my tractor to the dealer in a few weeks for the loader valve replacement and let them know about the seat then.

I am not sure why, but the seat is working better now than it ever has. I used to argue with it to get it to swivel correctly. :laugh: What does that rod do?

Mine is rising and turning with the rod ball end broke off. Before it broke, the seat would not raise correctly to turn. It would only turn slightly and feel like it was hitting metal to metal at the point where it should raise. I had to try many times before it would raise and turn. I wonder if possibly it was connected wrong.

I had rod #27 break back in October. I showed it to the service manager at my dealer and he knew exactly what it was, he had seen that part break before. My dealer sends broken parts back to Deere, hopefully so they can learn from them. #27 seems to be a week link in the swivel seat.

I agree, it didn't last very long.

This sounds like something that either JD needs to beef up or the aftermarket will hopefully step up to the plate and make a better one. Can someone post a picture of it installed?
