Does anyone know of another source (other than Agco) for the steering arm (the one that's right in the center of the frame) bushings? I think Jack's had the originals for something like $20 each! My tractor doesn't have the grease fitting like the parts book shows, and the bushings have an outside lining (I guess steel), but the inside is some kind of other material (doesn't seem to be super hard, I don't think it's rubber, probably something else). The outside diameter of the bushing is roughly 1 and 5/16". The shaft is roughly 1".

Thanks in advance for taking the time to help!

l can't tell you off hand what size you need, but you should be able to get a couple

of bronze bushings to fit, at any bearing supply shop, for a lot less money. If I where you, I'd

install a grease fitting while you're working there.

I agree with Will, it should be a match able item to today's available parts.
If not, you might try the site sponsors see if they have access to them.

BTW: Agco shows a different number, a 526649M1. This Might be an old #?
A google search of your part number shows Jack's can get it and they are 10.92 each.

Thanks for your help Alan! I was wrong on the price. I just looked at Jack's again, and it's the price you quoted.

Thanks for your help Will! That's kind of what I was thinking of doing. I wonder why it's (this 14) different than what the parts book or operator's manual shows (having a grease fitting, and maybe a different bushing than what I have)?

Does anyone know of a sleeve bearing supplier that would have one with a 1 and 5/16 outside diameter? I'm having trouble finding one that size.

I briefly googled & found several suppliers but you never gave a length. Check these out & scroll down to your size needed. It wouldn't allow me to get price without filling out a bunch of info first...I hate it when they do that

Thanks Jim! I'm guessing that they're 1" long. I will measure and see.
