  • Front Axle/King Pin
  • Hello everyone. I have never done any work on the front axle of my '49 8N. I was told that if the axle does not hit the nipple on the front mount distributor cap that the King Pin was good. Recently I had the front wheels off the tractor and notice the amount of play in the front axle and wondered if it was normal or showed wear in some component. I made a video so that the group could advise me. I can't embed the video so I will post a link to it.

  • As Roger said, replace the bushing. Me, I would replace the pin also. It is likely worn too.
