This question is for those experienced in No.7 repair. Is F43 from the owner’s manual parts list the tapered bolt holding the pawl housings to the left and right axles? Have you ever located a tapered bolt replacement part??

I have used parts from a scrapped machine. I haven’t tried to find such a part.April 8, 2017 at 4:38 pm #90289
Thanks Jay. Turns out Master Equipment stocks an aftermarket equivalent part. I just ordered a few.April 12, 2017 at 9:25 pm #90305JayParticipant
Thanks. That’s good to know.April 13, 2017 at 7:09 am #90306
Actually the threaded portion on the parts from Master are too short. I’m making a drawing of the original to have a shop make one locally.April 26, 2017 at 7:08 am #90324
It turns out that D.A.Hochstetler of Topeka, IN makes these for Master Equipment to sell. I’m not sure why they make the pins with the short threads…..something about them being used on the No.9?? I’m not aware of the 9 using tapered bolts but I’m less familiar with that mower. Anyway I contacted them directly and they made a version with the correct longer thread for me. The total length of the part should be 3-7/8″ with the threaded portion being 7/8″ of that. So, if you need F43 for a No.7 contact D.A. Hochstetler directly.
