Bolt hitting oil pan

I have a D17 serial# 38791 but I don't know what series it is. To get to the problem, the bolt that connects tractor together at a pivot point underneath is so close to the back of oil pan that it is putting dents in the pan. I don't know if someone put a different front end on it or not but it doesn't seem right. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is my first D17 that I bought in June 2002 so I'm learning something new everyday...sometimes good...sometimes bad.Thank you.

This is a special bolt that has a larger shank and smaller threads. It goes in from the front to the back with the nut facing away from the pan. The A frame should tighten up tight to the plate that is there on the back of engine mount. They have a tendancy to wear plate, bolt and A frame which lets it cock up a get into pan. I have bored out pieces and put in steel bushings with a new pin when this has happened in the past.
