4040 Front Axle Pivot Rebuild

Recommended Posts

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.
