Hey;

On my Jacobsen tractor (UT 345001) is there a thrust washer between the kingpin and the front axle?
Book does not show one.

Thanks

Not sure about your model, but there was not one on my Ford 195. I made one out of thin metal to take up the wear of thirty years of use. Tighten the axle up nicely.

I would say it doesn't have one. Mine doesn't have one.

I appreciate all the help fellas.

My weight box works out better than anticipated.
Prior to filling with weight, rear tires would easily slip on wet grass. Now filled with approximately 300 lbs, it climbs a stiff 30 % grade like a mountian goat.

No no thrust washers. I just did my fathers axle to get rid of the slop .
