Best front end jacking point?

Recommended Posts

Which works best for you when placing the front end on axel stands ... I run a C121 and need to get the front wheels off...

JACK IT UP IN THE CENTER OF THE AXLE AND PUT STANDS UNDER THE FRAME.

Just be careful with the zerk fitting on the bottom of the axle at the pivot.

Me too, except I'm a big chicken - I always throw an extra chain over the jib and secure it for safety - saw one fall one time....scary...:o

  A soft spruce 2x4 on the jack pad or better yet, drill a hole in the 2x4 is what I do....

I make spreader bars out of square tubing with risers at the ends to support the axle , keeps it off the grease zerk too (like a wrecker boom) and sits in the saddle hole on a garage jack . Use jack stands to support the tractor by it's frame - best way to grease that front axle pin/spindles while you're at it ....
