If it were me I would not try to mount that piece with the trans cover bolts. If you want to fix the casting you can clean it with acetone and the fill it with J B weld or other metal filled epoxy then drill and tap a hole then next size SMALLER than the orig bolt. Install that bolt in the cover last and if you use a gasket give both sides a light coat of good RTV.

A 185 is a number series correct? I'm not familiar with this tractor stuff. Biggest I've done is a bolens qt 16. But pretty much the same kinda setup as a tractor goes. just smaller. I need to look closer at the manual for the parts of the three point obviously. The bolt hole is unusable and would need to be built up or replace the case. I would try building it up first. The main parts of the three pound do mount to the final drive housing with at least 9 5/8? Bolts. I noticed the welded plate, did look like a po fix job. Be back after a closer look see.

This is what I have. The two parts are without a doubt welded together. Parts diagrame is from Messick's. One other thing that I don't have is on the next page of the messicks 3point break downs. 3 point stabilizer not sure what that is, or where it would go.

:help: :lost: Oh! How would I mount the 3 point without installing those bolts since when installed it also hold the cover behind it?

Having looked at a tractor with the 3-point installed, I now see that the square part sticking sideways from part #25 should be bolted directly to part #30 (reference to picture above). This provides a direct connection from #25 through #30 to the final drive housing. I now think the housing damage at one of the upper bolts of #25 is no big deal. Repair it any way of the ways discussed and it should be fine. Is there enough material to drill/tap deeper and use a longer bolt? This is assuming you have all the pieces to your 3-point including #30 and the corresponding parts on the other side.

Only piece missing is 27. Also no chance of taping any portion of what is left. When whoever ran the oversized self taping bolt in, it blew the back of the cast right off.
Thanks, I think we are to the end of this conundrum. Fix it then move on to how to get the clutch out for a look see what has been done to that. This is where it all started.( the can of worms ) shear bolt broke and took clutch brake mount with it.

Both of mine have part #28 welded to #25 as yours appears to be. Looks like your missing part # 30 ,or if you have a woods mower , part #30 is replaced by a whole other deal.
