2,123,757 Jul. 12, 1938 Pitman pin bearing Arthur L. Warner Elgin, IL "In the operation of mowers and reapers or the like in which cutting knives are rapidly reciprocated by a pitman, the crank pin that operates the pitman has a comparatively short throw. The pitman however has a rather rapid motion and a great deal of strain is placed upon the pin with the result that the connecting parts soon wear, become loose and rattle." The invention provides a mechanism to accommodate this wear and avoid rattling.
