tell me their original zinc plated stud rusts to the adjustment yoke over time.
The 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 it's thread. My solution to this problem is a 304 Stainless
Steel adjustment stud which won't rust. Some grades of stainless steel will
rust significantly but not 304.
This is an assembly consisting of a new John Deere mule drive knob,
new 304 Stainless Steel adjustment stud, and new jam nut.
