Those two pieces of steel make up the "receiver" for the tailgate which the "jaw" clamps on the tailgate pin against.

Everything was rusted up solid. It took a pry bar to move the jaws up off the tailgate. You'd have to work each side little by little, and I'm not talking like a little force. Im talking a 3 foot pry bar with some *** behind it lol


Thats all the farther it would close too, but you can see how it works on this truck.

I don't know if the company that built the bed makes them, or buys them. But they use that latch on ALL of their beds. And most companies around the area use the same latch assembly.

Either way, its a poor design.



Thats dads G series tractor. I think its a 325G? I can't remember. Has a kawasaki 20hp V-twin in it. Its a nice little lawn tractor. Power steering, hydrostatic. Its like a 2004 or somewhere around there lol
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.

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.

Does anyone know if a gas cab is the same as a diesel cab? Except for the core support which I know is different.

Firewall is the same as far as I can tell. Not 100% sure on the floor pan in 250/350 vs 150. If the cab is F150 and has a bolt on trans tunnel, it would need to have the taller trans tunnel swapped over, which is about 8-10 bolts once the carpet is pulled out.

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

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.

Azz hole at first. But seems like a decent guy once you get him to calm down. Doesn't seem to realize the world doesn't revolve around him.

Yeah I can see that.

He's very high strung. A lot of people dislike him. Badly.

I've never had a bad deal with him. He just does stuff his own way and that's it lol
