Took axle to machine shop as hole for pins attaching to wishbone were elongated 1/8". front to back on bottom hole. Told them to recenter on elongated portion so they could make the hole round to accept 3/4" brass bushings.Took the center pivot pin and new bushing for it. and new 3/4" to 5/8" brass bushing to shove in hole. 5/8" pins not worn as they are harden. Axle was the softist.
Needed to machine as front pivot pin must be square to vertical pins, so wishbone fits in the ball socket on transmission.
Plan on using worn pivot pin, and will weld it in place . Let next owner worry about it. Probably will last the life of the tractor and then they can cut it out if necessary,
Good to have slept on this job to DO IT RIGHT
