Fast Hitch lever measurement needed

Postby Rick Prentice » Mon May 15, 2006 4:11 pm

Hi Guys. I received all the parts to convert a broken fast hitch adjusting lever(called---Fast Hitch adjusting lever with quadrant brace) that belongs to Peter Person(what a great guy). I need a measurement of the total length of the lever. Maybe measure from the centerline of the bottom pivot pin to the top of the handle(not the button). His was broken off right above the quadrant and I'd like to make it as original as possible. The part number of the actual lever is 520152R11. If you have the Support Pro disc, the lever is part of the pictured assembly#520164R91, probably somewhere around 36" long. Wish I could figure a way to post the pic :( . Thanks Alan for the needed handle and Thanks guys for the upcoming measurement, Rick

Rick - are you talking about the front bail height adjustment lever that was replaced by a crank on the later style?

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Yep, probably. This has the button on the top and raises and lowers the front of the fast hitch. It bolts to the front of the right final and the quadrant bolts to the rt fender with a brace bolting to the platform

Yup, that's the one.
I met Rick on Saturday morning along RT 24 on my way back to CT.
Looking forward to installing the finished product at CubFest in June.
Thanks for all your help.
Now all I need is the diagonal link assembly and I'll be as close to original as necessary.

Rick - I measured 46" from the center of the bottom hole to the top of the lever - not counting the button.

Holy Cow, No wonder the thing was broke off. It sticks up and out a "Country" mile :D .

Bigdog, could I talk you into taking one more pic of a close-up of this shot, right at the place where the lever makes that bend at the quadrant brkt(7 slots). If you get a chance, I would appreciate it. I plan to do this project the first part of next week. Here's the pic I "borrowed" from you :shock: , Thanks,Rick

Rick - that extreme bend is there because someone was using the lever as a means to get up onto the cub. I will straighten this one when I get a chance. I can get you a picture though if you need it.

Hope this thing works :D . The only part that could be used off the manual lift was the cast handle grip. Everything else was different. Now all we need is Peter's Cub :D

That looks awesome.
I take it there is more difference with the Fast-Hitch Lever versus the Manual Lift Lever than we all thought at the beginning of this little project.
All I managed to do today was get the nicks and dings out of my rear rims before bringing them to the powder coaters this week, then get the tires mounted in time to bring the Cub to Ohio for CubFest and put this lever back on and try my hand at plowing. :D

For those who did'nt see it being installed at CubFest here is another fine creation from Rick Prentice.
We determined that all I need to do is have the quadrant flattened back into it's original shape and the lever will glide through the whole range.
Thanks Rick!
