Series 4 Rockshaft Control Lever

1591 Views 9 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  workinonit
I am having problems with the Rockshaft Control Lever “missing” the metal stop that I set into position. The lever wants to run past the metal stop. Since the stop doesn't go all away across the slot, there is enough room for the lever's arm to run past it. Has anyone else had this problem and, if so, what was your solution?


One solution I had is to put the locking lever in the way of the arm but I am not sure this is what John Deere had in mind.


Another solution I had thought of is to JB-Weld another piece of metal on top of the existing metal stop so as to close the gap. Any other ideas?

Ortimber: That's what I do most of the time but sometimes I forget. Senior moment.
ZoomerHD: That now makes sense. Thanks for the clarification on why JD designed the lever like that.
