420C Upper Idler Assembly Needed

Post by Jambx » Mon Feb 11, 2019 9:09 am

Just purchased a 59 420C - seems as though one of my idlers did not turn and is all worn (almost to the bolt). The shaft as well seems chewed up - looking for the whole assembly. Anyone have a decent spare they can part with? Thank you. Jim (CT)

I purchased one from Mother deer a few years ago. It wasn’t cheap but if one has to.....

Not seeing anything on Craigslist up this way. Have you sent Lavoy a note at postmaster@jdcrawlers.com, to see if he has any or suggestions of places to check?

I have them and parts on hand. No need to replace support, just put in new shaft, then replace idler. I had responded to your PM a while ago.
