Super A - 140 Steering Bushing Kit PROBLEMS

[ Expand ] [ View Replies ] [ Add a Reply ] [ Return to Forum ]

Posted by RTR on May 03, 2013 at 07:08:49 from (

I have bought several kits off of eBay from the tractor parts suppliers that typically sell good aftermarket parts. I bought these kits after they were recommended by a fellow tractor enthusiast that has used several kits with no problem and great results. Well I have used 1 kit on a Farmall 140 and had trouble with the bushing fitting into the steering housing. We cut a slit in the bushing, and installed it into the housing. Then the steering gear shaft wouldn't fit into the bushing. Ended up taking it out, and reusing the old bushing that was in there since we had filed on the other one too much to the point it wasn't true anymore. It just wasn't machined to the right size!

Well.........I ended up letting an older gentleman have one of the rebuild kits a coulple weeks ago so he could fix the steering on his Farmall Super A tractor. He called yesterday and said he had a local machinist look at it and tell him the bushing was 1/8 inch too big and would not fit. He miked it and saw that. Not sure which bushing he was talking about but I presume it is the same case as I had with the 140. I told him to see if the machinist would machine it down but the guy was concerned that since the bushing is so thin, that it might not work well or last very long.

QUESTION: Has anyone else ran into this problem? I thought the kits would work with all tractors (Super A - 140) and if the parts were different, you would think they would be different between the Super A & the 140; but now both models have been tried. The guy that recommended the kits said he has never had any problems. I have ordered the kits from another supplier, but they are the same (come in same packaging and look identical). All of the other parts work well: bearings, seals, gaskets.

What would be the solution? Does anyone know the exact measurments of the bushings of if there was a change??
