When the Pivot Pin wears and you leave it, the next thing to go is the Radius Rods will bend up-wards in the middle as they are supporting the axle from twisting, then after that it will knock the bottom water hose connection from the radiator and if you don't notice this when working, the engine will seize up, this has happened on many occasions.. Replace the Pivot Pin and Bush or it will wear the axle too much and you will need another axle beam as well. When repaired the steering will be much lighter as well, you will think that you have power steering. Also check the bearings at the bottom of the King Pins as they don't get enough grease....John(UK)...firstname.lastname@example.org

Since joining the forum I have enjoyed your insight. Regarding the Pivot Pin and bushing, I have a total parts diagram and assume it is part numbers 183221M11 for the bushing and 180344M12 for the pivot pin. They are inexpensive at around $45.00 for the set and don't seem too hard to replace. On the project list!

Thank you for your comments! Make sure that you do get the correct parts as there is more than one type of Bush and the Pivot Pin is also peculiar to the Bush that is fitted. The Bushes originally were a thin wall type and the later ones had a thick wall with a collar on one edge. If you have this thick wall type, fit TWO not just one and it will give more support to the axle and prevent the load being transferred to the Radius Rods as it wears.The Axle beam is different depending on the bush fitted, the thick wall type has a larger hole in the Centre Axle Beam. If you need more information about this or anything else, email me direct at email@example.com....John(UK)
