Quick Fix Improves Mower Ride
Lacey says the fix turned out to be simple as the overall unit was built strong.
He used a 1-in. pin T.O.E. that he inserted through the front into a 1 by 2-in. box tube for support. A front nut keeps the tube tight against added hard plastic blocks to limit unwanted movement and travel. Clips were attached on the top of the blocks to ensure the travel never got too high. The modification allows about 6 in. of vertical movement.
With this addition in place, he used a bullseye level to keep the axle horizontal and welded the spindle sleeves accurately on the vertical.
“It’s a much smoother ride now,” says Lacey. “The fix turned out great.”
He estimates he invested about $50 in the modifications.
