looking for rider snow blade parts

Hi all, I am having trouble locating the blade angling spring part # 11851 and the spring's anchor washer part # 11850

I tried to fab something from an existing spring and drilled my own washer,last season, but to little success. Anyone with a known substitute, ..can offer the parts, I'll pay, or ...offer a good source please let me know.

Re: looking for rider snow blade parts

I had a similar issue maybe 10 years ago. I found the spring and a more or less suitable washer at my local Ace hardware. I can't recall what, exactly, I found but Ace has been a source for a lot of this kind of thing. A good bit takes some minor modification but it can be done.

Re: looking for rider snow blade parts

Last I checked, GRAVELY still had those parts? I bought several of the springs a few years back.

If you try to look up those five digit part numbers you will have no luck, add a zero in front.

I have seem them on Ebay from time to time as well.

Re: looking for rider snow blade parts

Thanks guys,

I'll try a gravely dealer later,,, and Richard's too. Parts tree wanted $46 for the spring, and $20 for the washer. I'm not a mechanic, part swapper at best. The spring I tried last year wasn't strong enough and so I thought I'd look again this year. Probably looked last year, saw $46 and said "no thanks"

I understand, it seems expensive. But it is not just some generic industrial spring, GRAVELY has them made special. So for them to continue to supply them, it is going to be a little pricey.

I'm all for saving money when a part is generic and can be sourced elsewhere, but when it can't, I would rather have it "right" as opposed to "rigged".

Took one to tsc and matched with one and bought a 2 pack for not much money, plus new pivot bolt nut and washers for one I sorta tightened up for use. So you can find them your just not at the right place yet. Been on there 5 years now I'd say

Re: looking for rider snow blade parts

Ok Steven, You've inspired me,

I think I might risk a little time and try again for an "off the shelf" fix. The spring I installed last year was not strong enough. The spring simply stretched and didn't return. It was my first season plowing with the Gravely, and the blade would stay "to the right" and I plowed that way. It actually exceeded my expectations for the Ohio snow & I didn't mind. I did mine and the neighbor's drive a few times. I had a blast. But I could probably cut my time from 25 minutes down to maybe 20 or less with a good pattern, and the ability to lock down the blade angle.

I agree with Sheldon also, if I strike out again I'll pay for it to be "right" and not "rigged".

Heres what you need. I found my spare. When I had trouble the plow has to much play and catches the spring when it turns every time. And you need to tighten it up or it will do it with any spring you put on. Ask me how I know lol.

In one of my tractor threads I rebuilt a blade and that same pic was posted. Could I find it again, no so took another. Try to pass helpful info along when I can from my experiences. I work on them by day and collect and work on my own at night. So know abit

Did you checkout McMaster-Carrs website for hardware? (McMaster.com) They probably have something close to what you need.
