On my old "B" my spindles have extra play at the tops on the front end. It seems to be in the area where the the set screw/bolt tightens into the spindle. Is there a fix or am I gonna have to look for some new ones? Thanks for any help, Jon B. in AR

normally the bushings get 75% of the wear. after a while the steel spindle shaft will start to wear.--- take out the set screw and pound or wedge the steering arm off the spindle. jack the front alxe up 6 inches off the ground and slide the spindle and wheel/tire down to the ground. look at the spindle and the bronze bushings in the axle tube. you can determine from there your course of action. might be able to put in new bushings and get rid of 2/3 of the slop and reuse the spindles with minor wear. if the spindle has over 1/16 inch wear, it is worth considering repairs of them also.

Well Jon, if they weren't greased regularly the shaft wears, the bushings wear then the conical holes that thoughs set screws go in get elongated. Best thing to do is pull your spindles, have them welded up and turned and the hole filled and reboared. The bushings cost me about $30 from an AGCO dealer.
