I am putting finishing touches on the backhoe for my 2000 ind. it is not the original but a woods 7500 so far no problems i need to make a plate on the left side to mount sub frame ,but i need to move the radius rod outwards approx 1" from trans housing to make more room for plate to bolt up and clear between trans housing and radius rod.
then i will make a a spacer where radius rod socket bolts up to trans housing.
any body ever see something like this done before??
appreciate any help TIA Al

thanks for getting back to me,the three bosses are what i am trying to access. on the right side there was plenty of clearance not much on the left side at all, i figured if i can move the radius rod to the left 3/4" i would have enough clearance to slip 1/2" plate vertically and then tie that in with the sub frame.
i am hoping it will not have any interference with the steering. going to machine a 3/4" thick plate same configuration as the back piece of the ball socket and make longer studs and bolt it down
can you add anything from your experiences soundguy appreciate any input al

I once had to make a steering arm offset for a loader bracket. I toyed with moding a rad rod socket.. but you need to keep geometry correct.

I think I'd make a bracket that avoided the rad rod if I could even if it was slightly U shaped with 2 pads.

of course that's a shot in the dark not knowing what you are up against for room, and the home made subframe.

post some pics if you get a chance.

in any case.. if you do space the rod.. make sure you do not significantly effect geometry and put it in a bind. most rad rods have some slop.. that will work in your favor.

one other consideration.. with the longer fasteners needed for the spacer.. try to avoid front end colisions.. them longer bolts will be longger levers and may break off.. Smile

I was going to make a u shaped bracket but it would had to stand off 6" and drop down approx 9" and back in 6" and i thought it would be to flexy.
was going to move rad rod socket 1" to left and decided to go only 3/4" .
i am hoping that the geometry will not be greatly affected.
I wonder if there was ever an occasion that Ford had to do something like this to adapt a piece of equipment to the tractor??
thanks for the suggestions and i will get a pic up as i progress.. Al
