What all is involved with replacing the cab mounts on a 970? I'm on a quest to make this tractor quieter and a lot of people recommend doing those. The rears are about 3/8" thick and still have some sponge to them. Do you remove the entire bracket that's mounted to the rear axle to do those? The fronts on mine don't look to be in very good shape and look kind of difficult to get to.
What about all the cables? If the new mounts raise the cab this is going to be putting tension on the throttle and powershift cables right? Although my PS cable is out of adjustment, curious if this will fix that.
Other things I plan on doing to quiet the cab is trying the spray/paint on bedliner stuff, I'm hearing good stuff about doing that. These tractors originally came with material in the control box, mine is of course gone. So going to look into putting something in there. Maybe coating the inside of that box as long as doesnt cause anything to bind. Insulate both sides of the firewall and I'm going to pull the ceiling panel down and see what I can put in there. Mines an early 70's model, I read that the late 70's models had extra insulation up there.

The easiest way to replace the rubber insulators is to remove the mounts they are in. Remove and replace them one at a time. You can jack up a corner of the cab just enough to remove the mount without have to mess with any cables or linkage. Remember to remove the bolt securing mount to cab first and leave the parking brake disengaged so the cable does not stretch. Usually not a bad job unless the bolt is rusted tight in the metal sleeve molded into the insulator. Rod.

The whole experience can be marred if one moves too fast and makes too many assumptions that they can just use "as is" some parts they should be closely scrutinizing and possibly attended to. In such cases, rework makes what could have been a fun project turn into an irritant or even a nightmare. Minor Irritants To give you an example of an minor but irritating proble ... [Read Article]
