What's a "Rockshaft"?

Dear Meli,
     I am new to restoring old tractors, I have asked a few people trying to find out what is a Rockshaft? Could you give me an answer?

Hi ya...
     The "rockshaft" is the shaft in the powerlift at the back of the tractor. (See the illustration below) The lift itself is part #62, and the shaft is part #28. There are two shafts, one on each side. They rotate or "rock" about 90 degrees, and by attaching levers, "arms", or linkage to them, you can lift various implements.
