Hey 2 tractors... when it is time to do a spindle... put it off till cooler weather. I started this Sunday evening... just taking apart the easy stuff and studying the job... yesterday I suffered in heat as bad as what you all get down there... and just now got back to it to the point of putting the hub on next chance I get.... but this was a fight not suited to the present climate. Should have done this when it was 10 in the sunshine...
The brass you see is swiped from my winter hobby in the cellar. This is thin sheets for the model railroad that became shims for the spindle. That and grease.... it looks as if no one in 55 years ever stuck a grease gun on the zerk. This tractor had a hard life in all sorts of weather...

Tony, did you get the shell of the bottom bearing out?...I mean did
you get it all out? Many times people think they have the shell out
just because the bearing has fallen out in pieces but there is a hard
shell still in there. How do you know? Well, when you put the new
bearing in and refit the top arm... if the spindle does not protrude
about 1/8th" then the bearing shell is still in there. The best way to
take it out is to heat it up well or run a quick bead of weld around it
to shrink it and then it will fall out.....Oh! and spindle repair kits are
cheap as chips, without robbing the railroad!
Sam

Couldn't be as humid, no sweat puddles on the floor. Why didn't you use some of those empty beer cans for shims?? You probly got hot and tired from all the 12oz. curls. Lets see some pics of that front pump.

Well Sam, I was suspicious too, I cleaned it all out in there, took my little flashlight (torch) and it was as polished as a bearing shell in there, but the edges were square, not bearing case rounded over, and.... I didn't remove a 'bearing' when coming apart... just a very large washer... I could see the bottom of the bushing... yes, I'm not that cheap,,, I did buy a spindle kit in the YT shop... but the old ones weren't that worn, the spindle shaft was, this is my way of splitting the difference. I couldn't see another spindle on account of a lousy 10 thou... besides... the grease.... which this device has never seen in decades.... tightened things up quite a bit.... when all back together, there is 1/8 left above the steering arm. There was over half an inch before..
My biggest concern was rubbing the loader frame if worn... now that it's together.... I am still worried it will hit the loader frame turning hard on rough ground.... I think the bigger problem is the loader frame... we'll see...
I thought I posted pics of the front pump already? Maybe for the 202 on the MF forum? Here they R 4 U 2.....
These are gadorade days... beer would just put me to sleep on the job.... got to make use of the longest days of the years....

Guess that pump won't fit behind a 35 grill, got a PS sector coming for the loader, very expensive and then had to buy new well pump, may have to resort to cheaper beer this month.Hope your steering is improved enough to warrant the work.

Oh 2... I hate to tell ya... the steering didn't improve a bit. On dead level the tie rod will miss the loader by a millimeter. with the left tire in a dip, no right turns... and the loader is so heavy, the PS barely helps unless running wide open...
None of these front pumps fit 'behind' the grill.. they will be more than visible... they will be the first thing creamed in an accident, so they need a grill or atleast a bumper... I come to the conclusion loaders are a necessary evil...
