Customers tell me their original zinc plated stud rusts to the
adjustment yoke over time. They say it is especially noticeable when an old
belt is replaced and the mule tension needs to be adjusted all the way out to
install the new belt. They say many times they tear the adjustment knob
off trying to force the stud to the other end of its thread. My solution to
this problem is a 304 Stainless Steel adjustment stud.
The assembly consists of a new John Deere mule drive knob, new 304 Stainless
Steel adjustment stud, and new jam nut.
