Ok here's what I ended up with. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. A walk through the local Rural King had me thinking that a 14" long 5/8's bolt hook would be a perfect replacement for a gang support rod. The only problem is they only make them in 12"...and I didn't find any 14's on the web either. So what I came up with was to use an 8" bolt hook, a coupler, and a section of 5/8's threaded rod lopped off with about 3 inches hanging out the end. The coupler can also be turned to extend out or pull in as needed. I believe the original support rod is 3/4" but 5/8's felt plenty sturdy to me for what it does. Here's a few pics. Finally got the disc up and running this past weekend. Turned my garden over with a 193 moldboard (which I had also never used before), switched it out in less than 10 minuets for the disc harrow, and then chopped it all up nice and fine. Great feeling! My Cub, "Condoleezza" never even broke a sweat.
