Hi,

Can anyone please suggest a source for the rubber "balls" used on the Cletrac M2 gear lever, hand throttle and on the front and rear lights?. I seem to recall Zimmerman offering them on their old website, but they are no longer mentioned, and Zimmerman don't seem to use email??.

Thanks,

Matt.

I bought a knob for my OC-12 from Zimmerman's. Other tractor dealers should have them too. My Gravely uses threaded balls, but not as big as the shifter on the OC-12. They have email.

Thanks Blake. Is the knob you bought black or red? and does it appear to be hard rubber or plastic? the one original I have is made from a dark red rubber.

Matt, this one is black and hard plastic. Red ones might be hard to find. Good luck.
