4040 Front Axle Pivot Rebuild

Recommended Posts

midnightpumpkin
Has anyone rebuilt the front axle pivot on a 4040/616? I have searched the articles section and found nothing on this subject. Any thoughts or ideas anyone cares to share would be appreciated. Thanks John U

The whole thing depends on how deep you want to go. You can reem out the axle and turn new bushings and install, you can shim up the bushings so that the bolts can tighten evenly. You can go as far as to add some plate steel to inside of the frame so that the axle has a skid plate to rub. This takes the stress off the bushings.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
