We are working on my FIL's old D17 series IV. Right front wheel had all kind of play. First the wheel bearings fell apart in our hands when we removed the hub. Replaced all that - now the spindle its self seems to have a lot play. The book only shows some bushings and I'm sure these are completely worn out. What is the best way to get the steering arm off so you can slide the spindle down out of the shaft? We pulled the snap ring off and I cautioned by son about just beating on it with a hammer until we had an idea on the correct way to get it apart.


Or do you buy a big hammer and start swinging?

Front wheels with too much play , Our redneck black smith and local mechineck had the same problem Not a big enough hammer,
on the spindel, on the front of it , there is a bolt with a lock nut under it , loosen the lock nut a little and tighten the bolt down a little , then tighten the lock nut and that will take the play out of the stearing ,

The steering arm is keyed at the top so you cannot drive the shaft down out of the steering arm and spindle tube. The best way is to unbolt the tie rod from the steering arm, unbolt and remove the entire front end spindle tube assembly from that side, turn it upside down and put it back in the center tube. Then heat the steering arm up with a torch and use a hammer to drive off the steering arm. Hammering down works MUCH better than trying to hammer up.

The spindle bushings are available from AGCO dealers or aftermarket I believe (e.g. A&I). When you go to put it back together after putting the new bushings in, put the spindle in the freezer overnight. Heat the arm back up a little and drive it on the frozen spindle, should go on much easier. Of course have the spindle housing back in the upright orientation for reassembly. HTH. Mike

Can't use a gear puller to pull the steering arm off?

Sure if you have one stout enough. But you'll probably find you'll need to use heat too. Mike
