My 68 140 does not have rubber pads under the pan toward the front. The service manual shows them, but there is no mention in the parts manual. I had what looked like clear slick packaging tape in the area they should be located. Anyone have any idea how thick these rubber pads are?

I made some for the old tractor I had, it was a combo of steel pipe with a hose over it, then 2 pieces of larger hose that fit over the pipe hose combo. Luckily I took a pic. The hose is 3/8" and 3/4".

There was a thread here 10-15 years ago about this, can’t locate it. What I remember was cutting pieces from a dense foam gardening kneeling pad, I believe about 3/4” thick available in garden center at Home Depot. Did it to my 140, still there.

Thanks for the reply. I have some leftover rubber mat from Rural King that I used to make a mat for gator bed and floor board. I think it is 3/8 or 1/2 judging from the amount of down turn the pan has on the front top where it contacts the front bushings in the frame rails. I am going to assume it is supposed to be supported at same height as the front bushing. Thanks again!

As an aside, if I remember correctly, i used the remaining adhesive that had remained on the side rails as a pattern for length and placement for the new pads. As far as thickness, I suppose thickness would be dependent on the density of the material used.

Thanks Bob, I found the part in a 120 manual, it is in PC1078 and called a strap. Item 8 on page 16. I cleaned the glue prior to painting the pan. I am going to go with the rubber matt I have left over. It is either 3/8 or 1/2. The SM is pretty clear as to location. Thanks again. posted a pic of the 140 as received.
