Anyone get any tips on how to remove and replace these bushes for the steering arm located at the front of the tractor under the radiator?

Top bushes isn't too bad but the bottom is warn pretty bad, thankfully not all the way through.

After a little research I can't see the reamer working to well, particularly the bottom bush as it will bottom out and taper. I'm going to try and use a extended die grinder with a 40mm flapper wheel.

See how it goes...

Received the new bushes, got them in easy enough but the new steering pivot pin doesn't quite fit unless I hammer it in!
Would I be right to assume that these bushes require reaming?

Checked Ebay and there is a cheap 35-38mm adjustable reamer from china. Don't see much point spending heaps on a tool I only ever use once.

Will this do the job?

Whats with the little tabs on the cutting blades? All the other expensive ones I've looked at didn't have them.

I too had no torch, but eventually got them both out with a very thin and narrow chisel I had, The bottom was actually easier than the top because of how much thinner it was.

Ordered new bushes and a new shaft/pin.

Thanks for the comments!

Didn't have a torch back then when we rebuilt the front end on my 5000.

No disrespect Bern but some of us don't have all of the tools you have to work on these tractors.

When I worked at the dealership, I usually used a cape chisel and split the lower bushing. It can be a bear! If you're real careful, you can scarf it enough with a torch. I've done it, but I don't like to.

I don't know why anyone would dink around with a chisel in that location when you can have it out in 30 seconds with a torch.

I could tell it had been cleaned on, good tractors, MIL has a 5600 with nearly 7000 hrs.

I talked to several that didn't know there was a grease fitting under the bolster to lube the lower bushing.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

That whole area under the radiator was caked in 35 years of greese actually, so I scooped it all out and scrubbed it all back. I'm actually in the process of doing a partial restore on the this tractor. Engine is still pretty good at close to 6000 hours, its just all the other fiddly stuff that has warn out and needs replacing (steering, front axle, king pins etc), plus the painting and resurfacing. Costing me a bomb but i think it's all worth it.

Long sharp chisel.

Did you clean the bottom hole that well or has it never been greased, even the grease hole is clean.

Today's Featured Article - The Ferguson System Principal An implement cutting through the soil at a certain depth say eight inches requires a certain force or draft to pull it. Obviously that draft will increase if the implement runs deeper than eight inches, and decrease if it runs shallower. Why not use that draft fact to control the depth of work automatically? The draft forces are ... [Read Article]
