What is the clearance between the load shaft bushing, and the lift arm bearing? My manual doesn't mention shims, but I see them for other tractors. I would think they should be fairly snug. Mowing in rough fields I hear the arms bouncing back and forth. any thoughts? Stan

A machinery washer with an ID of 0.900 in should be fine. Just shim all side to side movement from L/D shaft with draft links attached

You can get an assortment of sizes from Deere, some times you may need to sand/grind the surface area while the A-frame is down to get rid of the worn depression... do away with all the end play that you can,, too much is why the seals fail too soon.

Tim
When you state "A frame" you must be thinking about rowcrop not utility tractor because as I know you're aware JD utility such as 401B has no "A frame" for 3 pt draft arms to attach to.

I found ones at Tractor Supply that fit my JD 1020. I think I ended up using 3 on mine to remove the play.

The same thing apples to utility tractors if the shaft is not shimmed up tight it will eat the load seals up...
