Front Axle Play On 2418
Posted September 14, 2012 - 10:46 AM
My front axle pivot bolt does not appear to have been lubricated for years. The result is that there is considerable play front to back of the axle. As I move it I see the bolt moves as well so assume the wear is not in the bolt but the opening. How do I go about fixing that? Fixing that and the switch are my first priorities, so I intend to take the axle off next week. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

In your response you mention adjusting the steering gear. Do you mean the box at the end of the steering column? I did not know it was adjustable.... great if it is. All the ball joints etc. seem to be pretty tight but I will look closely at them and at the spindles while I have it off the tractor.
