1086 lower hitch seals

Recommended Posts

How much trouble is it to change the seals and bushings on the lower shaft that holds the lift arms? I was told the bushings have to be pressed out and new ones presed back in.  Its leaking oil where the shaft comes out the side of the rear end housing.

It's not a bad job. But the hydraulic fluid has to be drained and pto unit pulled from the back. Most times the o rings can be changed and your good to go. Unless the tractor has seen a lot of 3 point work the bushings last a long time. BUT They do go bad. Bushings can be hard to pull. The seals are easy to swap. When you know how and have the parts ready it's a 4 hour job I would guess to do both sides. That's just a rough guess

The worst part is if your wheels are set all the way in...
