OK, time for my next newbie stupid question.

I have a bad drag link and would like to replace it. How do I stop it from turning while I unscrew the nut? I know there should be some way to stop the shaft from turning, but I can't find it. Any help, pointers, diagrams written in crayon without using big words would be appreciated.

TIA,

Kevin

Take a hammer & a sharp chisel and split the nut open.

If it is that bad that it needs replaced, don't waste time, just
either do as suggested, split with a chisel or cut it off with an
angle grinder or hacksaw. If it is good enough to save, then you
need to clamp it down tight into the taper and the nut will screw
off. Easy on any thing where the track rod end is in from below,
like on a 65. Just put the jack under it and lift the tractor!. On a
35 or TO20 you need a 'G' or maybe you call them a 'C' clamp
and about 8 inches of 1/2" flat bar. set the bar on the track rod
end and the drag link and put the clamp halfway along it and
tighten it real tight. Use the same methods to tighten in the new
one.

As has been said, press the tapered pin into the Steering Lever the best way you can so that it will hold and then you should be able to unscrew the nut....JohnUK)
