Squeaky ball joint

Recommended Posts

The one that comes out from the left side of the tractor (large-frame) by the left footrest... squeak drives me nuts. I have sprayed lube in there but it only lasts a short while. Do I need to replace it or is there something else I should do, like maybe packing it as full of grease as I can get it?

You can unbolt the ball stud from the arm, then push it all the way to one side and rotate and grease it. Then do the same with it pushed in the opposite direction. Then upward and then downward. This should put grease all over the entire inside of the socket that the ball fits into. Once the entire surface of the socket is covered with grease and also the ball, there should be nothing to cause a squeak.

      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 
      Paul
