    In mounting a Dearborn 14- 16 mower on a Ford 600,you stated the fender mount "breakaway" were different measurement front to back. I want to put washer under the mount to move the attachment point ahead. Would 3 washer do it or what would be the different measurement, to the breakaway mount point.
    I could also change the threading on the break away rod to get the 1/2"/ ft length lead , on the end of the blade per foot of length of the blade ( 7' blade = 3 1/4").
    Doing it by washers would retain the mower to fit either N's or 600.
    I use an adjustable sway bar on the left which accomadates Ns or 600.
    I made longer extensions for the 600 lift rods, but it would have been easier to extend the top link slide hole to accomadate the higher lift length of the 600.
    Thanks

    I have no clue what you are talking about. I don't recall ever saying anything like this, nothing about a 'breakaway' on a Dearborn Mower. Please clarify if you want some answers...

  • My original question related to "difference in fender mounts between N's and Ford 600". You posted a picture showing the stabilizer pin as about 1" difference front to back. I therfor deduced, but didn't reply as such, that the mower breakaway mount below the stabilize pin, for a Dearborn 14-15 mower, was also different, causing me to adjust the length of the breakaway. Problem solved, therfor no reply needed. Just answering puzzle created in post.
    Thanks for posting the picture.
    PS I also had to make longer lift extensions as the Ford 600 lifted higher. I also modified a pto male drive , from TSC, for a "fertizer spreader", from 7/8"X3/4" to 3/4"x 3/4", by machining. This shaft fits the 600 1 3/8" pto shaft. I now have a quick couplier and safety shield.
    Thanks for your help. Mowed the roadside bank and a ditch bank. and things worked good.
    I now have enough mower parts to malke another good one and some parts left over.
