Sheared the front pin at the rag joint this afternoon.  Drive shaft turns inside the joint.  Never had this happen or been into one like that.  Hard to get to I can see that already.  Of course, it is 100 yds from the shop.  Any suggestions on how to get at this to drive the old one out and put a new one in?   What size pin is it and is it a standard roll pin?  No parts manual for that section.  Parts tree shows the joint but not the pins.

chieffan it's not a standard roll pin. They are called either spirol pins or coiled spring pins depending whom you get them from. I buy mine from McMaster Carr.. I know they are 1/4in in diameter and I am quite sure they are 1 1/4in long. I've never done one on a diesel so I'm no help there. I've changed a couple in gas tractors but they are totally different.

:yeah_that:   The coupler is the same part number as the standard gts of that vintage and the parts list for those calls for a 915-3000  pin, spring 1/4x1.375 lg hd.   As for getting it out the couple times I've had to deal with that problem, I was able to line up the holes in the shaft and arm and using a long drift punch knock the broken pieces out.  Best if you can support the opposite side of the shaft somehow as your driving on it. Then get a long grade 8 bolt with a shank that went most of the way through and a nut and limp the tractor onto the trailer and take it back to work to fix with the new pin

Take the Tunnel Cover off it should make it easy to get to.4 small bolts and slide it back towards the seat and lift it out.


Partstree has the spring pins just not listed with a part # on the diagram. I had to order new ones for the 582.The same one that sheered on yours was cracked on mine and came out in 3 pieces when I drove it out.




Really easy way to safely drive them out is with a roll pin driver for an air chisel. Buzz the little suckers rite out real quick.


I have 1 of these that I use. Bought a cheap 5 piece set at harbor freight a couple years ago.

This tractor seems to give you all sorts of trouble, I think it's best if I come take it off your hands to help reduce the stress in your life.
