  • Still need the dimensions for the tail wheel support.

    Particularly need to know the material and length of the side supports.

    Thanks,

    Jack

  • Hi Jack, I know where there is a NOS one at a friend has, I can see how much they want for it if you want me to? Or what are you wanting to pay for one before I ask them? I realize the cheaper the better. Zack

  • Zack,

    Got the mower home and have looked at the wheel assemble I have. Looks like I can use it with very little modification.

    Thanks,

    Jack

  • Zack,

    Thanks for the response. Very interesting! The problem I see is I don't have a original wheel or know the dimensions for it. So I don't know if the wheel I have would require the frame to be modified or not.

    I'm going to be at the farm next week and will be taking some measurements to try to answer that question.

    It's up to the seller to price his merchandise and the buyer to see if he agrees.

    Naturally you are right, the cheaper the better plus we have a freight consideration. Believe you are in North Carolina.

    Thanks again,

    Jack

  • Thanks Charlie,

    It's what I don't have that is important. I have a Ford 901 5 foot rotary mower without a tail wheel. I have acquired a tail wheel and need to make the frame work to carry it. I also need to know the diameter of the factory tail wheel as I have no idea if my replacement is right or not. I can compensate. In these pictures I need the dimensions for the A shaped frame which carries the tail wheel. I do have the U shaped bracket, numbered item 8 in the second picture.

    These pictures are both from the manual posted on this site.

    I'll appreciate any help you can provide.

    Jack

  • Thanks Charlie.

    Some one must have a 901! I can't be the only person running one. I've used it for years without a tail wheel but think the tractor would be better off with one and with chains to lift it and for the top link. Bites in awfully hard on some of that ground.

    Once I get back down to the farm I think I can figure it out but would like to buy material here.

    Jack
