I replaced the cam follower pin last night on my 8N. It was almost completely worn off. The quadrant that it rubs against is worn down about one eighth inch. Should I build it back up. If so, is it cast iron or cast steel. I guess I could use brass on either one.
Thanks, Richard

I built mine up with flux core steel wire, ground down with disc grinder,touched up with a file. Works fine. Good luck.

I'd leave it alone. The new pin &correct adjustment will take care of the wear problem.

You did adjust the linkage, right? I think it's a lot easier (and more accurate) to use Zane's jig, as in the picture.

Thanks, It is worn about 7/8 of the way across the quadrant. So, I can tell how much to build up by what is left. It appears to be cast steel, so I can use a 6010 or 6011 rod and grind it back down. I just got it out of the housing to make it easier.
Temp is in the seventies, so I need to be preparing the early garden spot.

If you can weld build it up,,, nuttin to it,,, I use a mig,,, the unworn part will be your guide... If you are skeered leave it B... I posted a how 2 but will have to look for it...

I would not consider it a real fix if I put it back as it is,,, its more of a shim job in my book to let it skeer me...nuttin I would B proud of...

if you an weld.. I'd opt to weld it vs brazing. i think it will be easier to deposit the weld.. and it will for sure wear better against that hard dowel pin.

I welded up my last one with 6013 I would not choose 6010 or 6011. too much penetration and too nasty.. 60 13 lays down smooth.. less grindind to do afterwards.. the one on my 950 was worn so bad I had to fix it.. couldn't adjust the hyds properly without it it was eat up so bad.

your call.

Anyone hear of somebody using some form of a sleeve that rotated on the follower pin for a crude bearing ? Or a splash arm on the pto shaft to splash lube the upper assemblies ? Maybe a carefully aimed pin hole in the ram cylinder at max lift to spray lube ?

I recon a new pin every 50 years is enough but 100 years would make me feel better Wink

Built it up,ground it down, filed it smooth, looks pretty good. Will try to post a pic if I can figure out how to do it.
Thanks
