Help!I bought a couple of spring wire retainer clips to keep me from losing the swivel balls on my 1966 3000 and I can't figure out how they clip on to the arms. I'm hoping someone has a picture or can explain to this dummy how they attach. Thanks, Tom

I have the same problem with the lift arms on my 3910. The clips are broken off in the tabs, and I have not figured out how to get the broken ends out! My present solution is to keep the balls in the tool box when not in use! My 5610 has fixed cat 2 balls, so I keep a set of cat 1 to 2 bushings in that tool box. Both tractors are equipt with the dual category sway bars.

HTH, Dave

I had some time today to check out the lift arms. They don't have holes in them for the clip and the balls have to be turned just so so to be removed. I don't think they are worn that much. There is a nub or tit just in front of the ball socket but no hole. I can't post pictures because I'm on dial up, sorry. Tom

Hi Tom,

There should be a small tab that is part of the lift arm right by the ball. I am assuming it has the lift arms that allow you to interchange balls between categories I & II? Holes are drilled top & bottom of the tab. One end of the spring goes into one side and the other, the opposite.
Hope this helps..

My 5000 has the interchangeable Cat 1 & 2 balls. There is a picture on of the clip page 51 in the 2000/3000/4000/5000 Owner's Manual. I don't have time right now to scan & post it here. I'll post it later if no one else does.

Hi Tom;

I assume you are talking about the lower lift arms. If so, they do not require a pin to retain the balls as the arms are pressed around them to hold them in. If they are so loose that they come out, they are warn out and need to be replaced. The ends can be cut off and new ones welded on.

There are many different types of pins, can you post a picture? Hope we're on the same page and this helps.
