738 Pivot

Recommended Posts

firefoxz1
Been working on a 738. The deck was all cracked but that's a different thread. The pivot was froze fast, I managed to free up the pivot nicely but still can't seem to pull it apart to really clean out the old grease and rust. When I grease it grease comes out the back side but not the front. Question: Do I leave it alone being it is working or do I really try to pull it apart? I would still like to get it apart but being it pivots now I may leave well enough alone.

Tube is supposed to slide away and there is probaly a rust cut groove on the side where the grease is not present. You can try pentrating oil on the non greased side to see if it will break loose. Also you might be able to drive it out with a big hammer and likewise punch.

Well it was still froze more than I liked, when I jacked up one side of the front the whole front still wanted to go up so I tore it apart. Took 5 hours of twisting, turning, heating and pulling.

I had the rig so tight at one time that the front went up in the air with the jack on the rear.

Only took 20mins to clean grease and reinstall another ten to get the deck installed and I ended up with this. Grass is a little dry but I still got stripes.

Keep up the good work Thom. After all, I spent three weekends trying to get a B/S carb to stop flooding. Looking for problems in all the wrong places. Just takes perserverance to complete a job. A big hammer and a blue wrench also help. LOL
