Tie Rod bushing repair

Recommended Posts


Asked several times if anyone rebuilds tie rod with the HEIM joints with no response, so am looking to install larger bushings and then file hole in tie rod ends bigger. has anyone done this and has the part number/size of the bigger bushing?  Otherwise will spend some time at the hardware store this Saturday.

Hello Jeff - I looked to see that one of your earlier posts also refers to the drag link. There has been previous discussion about using Heim joints. It seems to be an easy replacement on the drag link, because the rod is already threaded. The Tie rod would have to be threaded and you would have to measure the joints you would use to make sure that you get the correct length on the completed tie rod. IMO, too much work form minimal gain. Are the holed in the tie rod egged out that you need larger bushings> A replacement tie rod could likely be had pretty cheap!

      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
