What is the best way to fix the slop in the ft axle pivot pt?
I plan on keeping the tractor so I wouldn`t mind taking the time to do it right.
Thanks

Replace the original pin with one of the new hardened front axle pins with the bolt and washer to draw the plates together.

If you know what you are looking for Ebay. If not Bill at Barneveld Implement (one of our approved dealers).608-9241662. I know they have them. The others maybe, also.

CB? Yeah, I got out of the bees on October 16th, 1970. So coming real soon 51 years ago! Stationed primarily out of Rhode Island. Base is no longer in existence.

I rigged up a bolt and washer thing. Seems to have tightened the assembly. The turning radius from L to R seems uneven, maybe Its that way from the factory, not sure.

One of the easy things to check for L to R steering is to get under the tractor and see if the steering gear is in place when the front wheels are straight ahead. The Sector gear has an arrow and with the steering straight ahead that arrow should point directly to the gear at the bottom of the steering column. If not you should drop the sector gear, and point it directly at that gear at the bottom. At that point you should roll the steering link between the sector gear and the front right wheel until the wheels are straight ahead, again. Once you have done that, check again for L to R. Then check for your toe-in.

Where do you live?

How is your tie rod ends? sounds like a rebuild for the front axle coming, along with the gear adjustment. There are shims for the gear if you need...........Curt
