  • Front end
  • I have a 1939 Ford 9N tractor. I need to remove the upper spindle arms. How do I remove the bolts? I have loosened up the nuts and tapped on them with a hammer but I canít back them out. If I damage one, where do I buy new ones?

  • Working on a 1939 9n spindle arms. I do not have a nut and bolt on the backside of the arm. I have a wedge bolt. I am not working on the tie rod end. One of the wedge bolts on the right side is seized up. I cannot get it out of the spindle arm. Looks like the spindle arm has been pushed forward and not lined up properly. The tie rod end is not in the drag link. Itís is only in there by a couple of threads. Where do I buy these wedge bolts?

  • Another thought. Back the nut out so that the threads are protected and then smack the bolt with a big hammer. It should loosen. May need to have the weight off the wheel

    No longer made. Dan Allen aka The Old Hokie has made some for me in the past.

    Here is a link to his web site.

  • You may need to take the bolt out.

  • Theo:
    I look up the part numbers in the back of the shop manual and order that way.
    The ones I obtained were for a car of that vintage and I had to grind some of the material off so it would fit in the tapered hole.
    They were very hard to get out with a good pin punch.

  • If your talking about the tie rod bolts? Put a pry bar under the tie rod. Hit the spindle arm with a hammer.
