1954 CA front end noise- looking for advice!

I have a 1954 CA narrow front end that my father completely restored. It's the workhorse on my small farm doing important, but not stressful jobs like pulling the manure spreader. My father has unfortuntely passed away and I am lost (in more ways than one). Recently the tractor, particularly when cold, makes a grinding noise in the front wheels going both straight and turning and also going backwards. The noise seems to get better as the tractor works more. I looked at my service manual but couldn't find anything. Is there someplace on the front of the tractor that needs oiled? I've looked for grease fittings but it doesn't appear to have those? If I do need to oil the front support, what weight oil and how do I get it in there? This tractor means the world to me and I don't want to break it through negligence. I really appreciate any help. Thanks!!

You guys were right!!! I took the front left wheel off thanks to Bob's step by step directions and the big wheel bearing had disintegrated!! The small one was still intact but the large one fell to the ground in lots of pieces - little rollers went everywhere. I'll have to get the parts and, like you said, get even more greasy!! Thank you so much for your assistance - I really appreciate the help!!!

Go to your local AGCO dealer and get the OPERATOR manual. It gives you all the info regarding lubrication, etc. Service manual covers teardown and repair. Sounds like you might need some repacking of front wheel bearings. Operators manual covers that. Beyond that- post here, and many will help you.

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
