I need a source for bushings and track pins for my 1950 John Deere MC. I threw a track a bit more then a month ago and one side is now showing quite a bit more slack and yes I have the adjusters all the way out. I have someone giving me a manual hydraulic log splitter and i believe that I can convert it to a press so I need to find a source for the bushings and pins. Yes I tried the local dealers but got nowhere. I am running the Lindman 16 inch grousers if that makes a difference.

You can try sending an email about this to Lavoy (postmaster@jdcrawlers.com). He is one who might know of a source if any still exist.

It's a stretch,but you might try Zimmerman Oliver Cletrac in Ephrata Pa. They specialize in Oliver,Cletrac and Case crawlers,but if it was me,I'd at least ask Landis.

You may want to check rail height and
roller wear before commiting to new
pins and bushings. If the pins and
bushings are that worn, the rails and
rollers can't be far behind and
putting new bushings against worn
sprockets will accelerate bushing
wear.

I was thinking about that too but I can grab my track and see where the slop is and most of it is coming from the internal wear. Once I get to doing the pins I figured i would check the rollers and probably have to pull them and take them to a machine shop or my nephew at his work and have the centers turned the same so I could then press in bushings.
