Joe, mine measures 23.5 inches in the place where you are asking about. Also yes I would be interested in a set of those springs.

Let me know if you need any more measurements.

Russ,
 
Here's a picture of my repairs to the Bubbafied strut arm. I made a new pitman arm as well so that I wouldn't break an original in the field. The original is a pain in the but to get on/off so I took some liberties to make it a bit more user friendly. I figure I can put the original on if I'm at a show or someting like that.
 
 
Concerning the above reply... Is 23.5 a typo? That would be way to short for my set up. Mine is at 26". If it was any shorter, I wouldn't be able to tilt the mower bar vertical for transport without binding the pitman arm. In fact, at that extra length, it wouldn't tilt at all. The limiting factor is the length of the pitman arm. My pitman arm is 33" center of ball end to center of ball end. How long is yours. (Boy does that sounds bad) Also, I assumed that the arm I repaired doesn't have any bends in it. Is that correct?
 
I was looking for an example of a few parts that are not shown. Does your 3 pics at the beginning of the post represent all the pieces to your mower bar?

I am 95% sure of the measurement, I will double check tomorrow. I think your angle maybe off plus you are missing some bracing as compared to mine. All the parts I have are in the pictures, I need all of the mounting pieces plus a disconnect arm. Here is another picture of mine so you can see how mine is put together.

Interesting... I didn't notice any evidence of prior welds in that area on mine. I'll have to take a closer look. Do you know the model number of your unit? Perhaps that brace is a feature of a newer model or a later release of the same model as mine. I don't see that brace in my liturature, but the pictures of that area are from an angle that makes it hard to tell for sure.

Here are some more pictures of what I have, that extra plate does not seem to be in the manual.

Pretty close to the 23.5

Here is that extra plate, looks to be a pretty good job.

This shows the angle of that bar.

Another of the extra plate.

That's kind of a tough one to value as there isn't many sales out there to do an appraisal. The last one I know that was for sale was many years ago. I think I remember it being listed for $1200 or so. I have no idea if it sold or not.
