while i have the hood and radiator off would it be a good/bad idea to lube the pivot pin with a graphite type (dry) lubricant?
thanks again.

I think they are meant to be changed every 50 years Maxwell....so you got a few years extra....! Any of you out there with the same pin in your tractor and it is over 50 years old...please check the condition. The warranty may still be valid as long as the original purchaser presents the tractor and both of his Grandparents to witness he was that purchaser! LOL....Sam

Ya know Sam, when a feller here tells jokes no one laughs at... someone usually sez 'don't quit your day job!'.. so don't sell your batwing mower until you work on your 'front end pivot warrantee jokes'... Oh BTW, Cladugh McKenna is not amused by your venture into online cooking lessons, baked tractor parts or not, she knows how to find you... I accidently told her it was the place with the only F40's on the eastern side of the ocean....
I would offer her a cool Carling Black Label, I'm sure then she will forgive you...

I have a friend whose son is a machinist.
He bought an old 8N Ford and rebuilt it,

I remember my friend telling me how he rebuilt the front axle bushing, bearings and pin. He installed a grease zerk in the axle casting and cut grease groves in the pin so the grease could travel back and forth completely lubing the axle pin. He probably spent 10+ hrs of machinist labor reworking that old axle bearing. Tractor will be long gone, but that axle bearing will be like new.

I use spray graphite from napa,

the spray works good, sometimes i jack the front end off the ground so the lube can get into the area between the pin and axle bearing.

was not the best lube system but i have only changed the bushing one time in 55 years
