What is the clearance between the load shaft bushing, and the lift arm bearing? My manual doesn't mention shims, but I see them for other tractors. I would think they should be fairly snug. Mowing in rough fields I hear the arms bouncing back and forth. any thoughts? Stan

I just used shims from places like tractor supply . You want to shim them pretty tight

The same thing apples to utility tractors if the shaft is not shimmed up tight it will eat the load seals up...

I found ones at Tractor Supply that fit my JD 1020. I think I ended up using 3 on mine to remove the play.

When you state "A frame" you must be thinking about rowcrop not utility tractor because as I know you're aware JD utility such as 401B has no "A frame" for 3 pt draft arms to attach to.

You can get an assortment of sizes from Deere, some times you may need to sand/grind the surface area while the A-frame is down to get rid of the worn depression... do away with all the end play that you can,, too much is why the seals fail too soon.

A machinery washer with an ID of 0.900 in should be fine. Just shim all side to side movement from L/D shaft with draft links attached
