Getting the idea that my new-to-me 4430 didn't get the *best* maintenance...

I went to grease the front pivot pins when I first got it and noticed the bolt wasn't centered and the reare one wouldn't take grease. I used it for haying last week, but decided I'd better do something about them this week. I think they were due.

That's why the question Whats It Worth is hard to answer as I have seen cheap tractors that weren't cheap and tractors that were in excellent shape that were cheap but to some too high..Tires,condition and past history are all factors.At least the sleeves are not worn thru and I would guess it will drive better.An hour of maintenance will add several hundred hours of extended life on these 40 year old tractors.I know a couple BTOs that roll their equiptment every year and never change oil or maintenance. .Under $3 corn might change their approach.The 158 loader got sold Thanks

I paid a fair bit under $10K. When I bought it, I told my wife I could put 3K in it and still feel good about it. This last round of parts (including some LED lights) cost *just* over 1K. Throw in rebuilding the seat and changing all fluids and filters, I'm gonna be just under 2K. A new set to rears will end up blowing my 3K promise, though.

No major problems have arisen yet.... I really like the tractor and hope it ends up just as reliable as my open station. One of these days, I'll get a picture of them together with my 1955 60 and Bay-B

Hi I think the warranty might be out on those pins and bushings L.O.L. I hope she was a cheap tractor, with bushings and stuff looking like that this might just be the start of the problems. I got a customer tractor in the shop like that now, re connected the wires off the oil pressure gauge and oil warning light Very low pressure, took centrifugal oil filter apart, the screens missing and inner housing full of gravel and parts that are there put together wrong! Now fixin the issues it never came for. and starting to look at it wearing a welding helmet so I don"t see another 6 days work on the hunk of junk.
Hope you get better luck than this guys tractor.
Regards Robert

I had the pin worn into the axle housing on the 1086. Wasn't real bad so I put the new bushing in with JB weld. Five thousand hours later I decided to replace the pins and bushings as regular maintenance and when I removed the old bushing I wondered who the heck JB'd the old one in there. I'd forgotten I did it but it was holding well so I JB'd the new one in. That was before I put a loader on this tractor and I haven't checked it lately. Hope it's still holding. Jim

Agreed those are no longer servicable. Had a 6400 a few years back that wore through the bushing and into the centre housing of the axle....machine shop did some grumbling about wrestling that housing into the mill......

lucky that you caught it before it wore into the housing...I change a lot of those, and every now and then I have to get a guy to come in with a boring tool to bore and make a bushing "for" the bushing...

Yep. Equipment maintenance is only as good as the Nut behind the wheel.
