'52 SC Front End worn out ...questions.

My SC has a wide front end. The verticle spindle for the steering isn't too bad but the horizontal pin that allows the front to tilt is badly worn. It's the housing that's worn. Has anyone bushed this area? Should I repair or try to replace? Are the front spindle housings supposed to be straight up and down? My front is raked out forward from the wear. Any suggestions?

The horizontal pin in my SC was broken. Have you had it removed to check it? If it is indeed the housing that is worn, I don't see why you couldn't make a bushing for it. You will probably find that the hole is not round, though. My front spindles were also not vertical. It was caused by the ball and socket connection for the "A" frame under the tractor belly. The socket portion was broken letting the wheels tilt forward at the bottom. The old socket was cast iron. I had a new one made out of very thick steel at a local machine shop.

The heavy plate that my ball and socket are attached to has pulled loose from the bottom. It looks like t-slot bolts hold that assembly to the belly of the tractor and they've pulled out. My horizontal pin is there but the holes are badly worn. One ear of that yoke looks like it might be bent. It's real heavy and doesn't look very easy to put back right. Looks like that piece that's worn is specific to the wide front. Do you think that would be a rare find and/or expensive?

Is the yoke that you are refering to part of the ball and socket setup or part of the front center pin assembly? I will look at my tractor to see if I can determine which piece you are refering to. I don't think you are going to be able to find replacemnt parts. I think you will have to get the part(s) you need fabricated. You should ask Don Livingston his opinion at manifold@smig.net.

It's the part that is in the verticle spindle housing. Looks like with wide front end, this part is put in and fixed in position (with narrow frnt. this part turned). I'll check with DonL. I'm not too far from Sharon Springs, NY. There's a tractor yard there too (Macfaddens). I'm a machinist and don't mind fixing it but the "bent" part might make it more of a project. Not sure about heating it and doing damage. Thanks
