need a seat spring for a w6

Postby artc » Mon Dec 06, 2004 12:30 pm

looking for the large seat spring that sits out in front of you on the W6 / W4 / OS6 / and i think some 'H' and 'M' tractors

this spring is 4.75 long, 2.25 diameter and uses a 9/16 wire.
Tried JP and CNG has it as NLA from CaseIH

anyone got one?

Might try http://www.weberstractorworks.com/ or http://www.chowntractorparts.com (Canada).

If you want a real thrill, see what it's like when that bolt through the center of the spring breaks. The end of the bolt with the nuts and top bracket go up right in front of your nose while you are dropping. Talk about a pucker in the seat cushion.

Actually it was my father. He only weighed aobut 190 (6' 2") but had the disk behind him. The seat can only drop about 6 inches, but your first thoughts are "I'm going over backwards into that disk".

I can just imagine. We had one in NY last summer. Brother in law visiting, mowing off tractor and through the brush hog. Thats why I trim all low hanging branches if I am going to be near.

John - i imagine that would be a scare. going to install a new bolt in it and be sure everything is correct.


Sad occurance in my town last week. sixteen year old boy backing a vintage JD and trailer. his brother (12) was riding the drawbar and fell under rear tire of the tractor somehow. The boy died. :(

A reminder to the rest of us to be careful. we all are guilty of doing exactly what that boy was doing.

found the spring.. Jamie came through with one and a fan shroud. i'm in pretty good shape now for parts and the tractor is beginning to go back together. still need to replace one rear tire and (hopefully) find a set of fenders.
