7016 steering square pin removal

Recommended Posts

Also, for the tie rod ends, there is clearance which lets in debris and grease out. There are no rubber boots. I suspect that some clearance is needed when turning, so would a plastic washer be acceptable or could I even go with a metal machine bushing? I have the steering off at the moment and will verify these clearances before mowing. I could build grease around the tie rod end before mowing, clean it after, but I'm after lubing it less often.

Some have used a flat roller bearing under the steering axels, and to get the key out just tap them with a punch or a chissel to get them to pry out. I stead of adding anouther post you can use the edit part to add to it. It is the icons above the post.

If you are talking about the ends of the tie rod that goes between the two front wheels the ends of the tie rod and the bushings the rod ride on are hardened. A little oil or dry lube is all that is needed. Too much grease/oil just collects dirt (abrasive) and makes wear worse. If you are talking about the ball joints on the steering link between the pitman arm and the LH steering arm there are supposed to be rubber sleeves/boots to seal lubricant in.

To oversome this situation, I used a brass hammer to tap on the bottom of the circular part of the arm and it came right off. Then the square keys popped right off the shaft. Later I read in the large frame repair manual about doing the same thing with a brass drift.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
