Gravely Model L or C Shipper Shaft Body



Description for the
Gravely Model L or C Shipper Shaft Body

The shipper shaft body is located atop the shipper shaft assembly mounted on the advance casting of the models "L", "C", and 500, 5000 series two wheel tractors, plus the 400 series 4 wheel rider tractor. These shipper shaft bodies were made in two heights subject to the model it was installed. Its function is to rotate 180 degrees transmitting motion through the shipper shaft to the trunnion block which controls the PTO clutch. These shipper shaft assemblies were operated one of two ways. Either with a short handle threaded into the shipper shaft body or with a control rod or lever located at the operator position.

This shipper shaft body is made of typical screw stock CR steel. The inserted shift pin is a stock hardened dowel pin. The model "L" style has a pocket in the underside for a spring and steel ball that engages a detent in the shipper shaft support guide to help lock into either of its two operating location. This body is supplied with double set screws to typically lock it to the shipper shaft, except when the short handle is used on the older models for that purpose.

Cause for replacement fall to two basic reasons. The detent ball has worn the ball pocket enough to adversely affecting its operation or the shift pin either has hammered out its press fit, worn thin or has broken off.

This is an equivalent replacement of the OEM item.
