What the heck are these????

Sun Apr 07, 2013 7:23 pm

Hi All,

New cub owner here again.

So it's almost spring-like around here and it's time to remove the plow and attach the mower.
First question:
How does that belt go on?!

Question 2:
What are the attached, what do they do and how do I use them?

Thanks!

#1 is the Touch Control Front Rockshaft - looks like the Boomerang is attached.
#2 is the TC Rockshaft Rod - connects from the Touch Control front rockshaft to the rear rockshaft
#3 is the mounting brackets for the IH Danco C-2 Mower I think
#4 .. not sure

And the boomerang on that rockshaft will not work on a TC rockshaft if I'm not mistaken.

Yup.. #1 is the Hand Lift Rockshaft. Keep forgetting that one even though I have two on the shelf :big give up:

I noticed in the illustration, the use of a straight rockshaft rod, yet the drawing shows a long ear dash.
Is the requirement for an off set rod unnecessary when using a manual lift?

Jim, You would still use a boomerang regardless of which rockshaft you have, but it is my understanding the boomerang on a manual lift rockshaft will not fit a TC rockshaft.

It will bolt on, but the hole where the lift rod attaches does not line up with the one in the rockshat.

I have never tried the straight rod with a handlift, but sighting along the mounts it appears that it would rub sometimes, especially if the hole is in the top hole of the hand lift.
