Pivot point play

Recommended Posts

Hello

I noticed today when discing a uneven field that our 3588 has a bit of play in one or both pivot bearings, about 1-2 cm (2/5"-4/5"). They have been replaced once before so it's a bit strange that it is needed agian.

What is a good way to check the play in the workshop?

I just put a jack under the pivot point and lifted it. A stupid question  really. The transfer case part is sliding up and down, looks like the race is moving.

The best way is to split the tractor. Then see if the hole that the pivot bushings sit in is worn out. If it is you need to cut a bigger hole and put in a steel bushing that your pivot bushing will sit in.
