You'll be unhappy...
And for once, someone posted a REALISTIC PRICE! Im proud of you for that.
Yeah, that is a piss poor setup. No serviceability or thought for when rust sets in. Is the center part welded to the pivot pin, or does the pin go through a hole in it? I'd cut/drill the pin out, bore the hole out bigger in the moving plate and install a bronze bushing. Replace the pin with a nut and bolt, welding the nut to one of the outside arms. That way you'd just need a hole big enough to slip a socket through to disassemble in the future, and pull it out the bottom to work on it.
That deere looked pretty new. My rating system is based on crankshaft orientation. Horizontal-tractor, vertical-lawnmower.
VERY piss poor.
The pin just went through the center of the "jaw". But rust seized it to the pin lol
You read my mind perfectly. Except Im going to try and make it to where it'll NEVER need serviced. There isn't quite room for a nut to be welded to the other side of the assembly, and tapping the hole wont work since its not exactly round anymore LOL
So, I was thinking of either doing the bronze bushing idea with a possible grease fitting with hose attached to it that would hang down under the bed. This would make it serviceable.
OR, just leave the hole large, and do an under sized pin with enough room to not rust together! hah!
And that makes sense!
It really is a lawn mower. lol
Does anyone have a set of the two post mirrors they would be willing to sell? I'm looking for the 1992-Up style. The ones that are in the shape of a 7. I bought some from Ford a couple years back they are pretty rusty. I don't want to buy another set new arms, since I fear the chrome plating will fail on me again. If anyone has a set of rust free ones, I would gladly take them off your hands.
Good luck. Id send them out to just be re-chromed professionally. They would probably last longer. OR Have some fabricated out of stainless.

Yes, it will be the same, except for what Bill mentioned about the transmission cover.
