I greased and tightened up the steering box, and then went to look at the frnt axle pivot pin/bushings.
Why, why did they cast those lugs to the oil pan.
The front bushing, is mostly there, but the rear bushing is gone, and the pin has worn a teardrop shape into the lug.
The bore in the axle is good, and the pin is worn badly where the lugs are.
Any wisdom, on how I might be able to fix this up, so it's good enough? It took 890 hrs to get it to this point.
Maybe a longer pin, and a shoulder bushing put in to the rear lug, from the backside.The shoulder could
rest against the bottom of the pan.
The pin is .625 and the lug looks to be worn out to .800 sideways, and of
course more in the top. Sorry, no pics. Hope I explained it clear enough.
