Hi,
TM Tractor's price for a new sector is $68.38, when I posted the link for it in my post on page 1 of this post.
It says it is a Case IH part.

I've never bought one of the sectors made by other companies, but maybe the teeth can be improved, filing them with a small 3 cornered file, and changing their shape slightly.
Have the sector and the throttle lever off the Cub, probably easier to sit and file the sector, and fit the 2 parts together.

If the place on the lever that touches the sector teeth is worn, it may need welding and grinding to the right shape to work right.
You could take the lever to a place that does welding on small items. :)

I had a look in my parts cabinet, and lo and behold I had a used replacement throttle quadrant. It helped, but the handle is worn and will need repair

I also started working on converting one of my two blades to Ricky Racers snowplow trip design. Just waiting for the return springs and forged eyelets to come in the mail.

Somebody needs to see a dentist for that chipped tooth!

Modifying the mold board is done. It needs a coat of paint, I'm thinking about using Meyer snowplow yellow and making some "mini-meyer" decals

Two blades mens it gets done twice as fast, right? Need to pull it out and drop the grader blade

I bought one off eBay or Amazon. It I'm sure is aftermarket for the price I paid. Maybe this is one of those quality control issues that everyone talks about like in the China carburetors. But the one I have there is no problem with the notches or lever it sets and stays in place. Can set it all the way at the bottom or all the way at the top or mid way. It doesn't slip back. My original had notches that were really small and didn't stay. I welded the lever back up but didn't want to get to the notches and try to redo all that.

I bought the last ones TM had, they were not going to bring any more in because the cost went so high

I want to say that is a 1986 or 1987, my Uncle bought it new. Only has about 60k on it. It's been shuffled around our shop for the last 10 years that we have stored it. I'd like to have the extra space instead...

Develope a habit of pushing to the left before advancing your throttle and your teeth and lever will not get worn out!

I have had two that had that problem a Cub and a 130 and it was the tooth on the handle had worn round. I welded a little bead on them and with a small grinder and file got them back in shape but it was a slow process and you can melt the handle if you are not careful.
