Wiggle in my front end on my little C

Hi All, Hope y'all that are plantin' are havin' good luck. I'm fixin' to start as soon as I can come off the road for my "other job" and looking forward to it.

Got a question I want to run by y'all. Our little C has a front end "wiggle" when we're mowin' or discin'. It's a narrow front end. I've had the front end off the tractor and inspected the bevel gears and pinion, and when I reassembled it I only used one shim to seal the pedestal thinking I could take up the play in the gear train but no luck. At least I haven't been able to get it. I've serviced and adjusted the steering box and the steering rod is tight. I'm convinced the freeplay is in the front, but don't know what to do to "take it up".

If all the shims have been removed you can add shims under the gear on top of the upright shaft.
When the front is bolted togather you should feel any binding as well as not being able to feel play between the gears. A non tec. method.

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Hay: The Early Years (Part 2) - by Pat Browning. The summer of 1950 was the start of a new era in farming for our family. I was thirteen, and Kathy (my oldest sister) was seven. At this age, I believed tractor farming was the only way, hot stuff -- and given a chance I probably would have used the tractor, Dad's first, a 1936 Model "A" John Deere, to go bring in the cows! And I think Dad was ready for some automation too. And so it was that we acquired a good, used J. I. Case, wire tie hay baler. In addition to a person to drive th ... [Read Article]
