Idler Arm & Shaft To Clutch Rod Pivot Arm

Recommended Posts

Bach-Ed

I needed to disassemble the brake/cluch linkage on my 857.   Am I missing something or do 2593 Clutch Rod, 5544 Parking Brake Lever and 3935 Brake Rod all need to be in place on 4899 Clutch Rod Pivot Arm  before I can struggle to align the holes with that of the 3950 Idler Arm Shaft to insert the roll pin?  I'm using up all my naughty words trying to get this back in place.  I'm hope someone can suggest a better way.  Or all you can do is extend your sympathies?

I know this is hindsight n all but in the above pic you will see a punch mark on the shaft & one on the arm. I have gotten in the habit of making these punch marks before I disassemble, it makes reassembly a bit easier.

I believe that all the linkage has to be in place before the roll pin is installed. PITA I know. Start your roll pin in the pivot arm, get your linkages on and slide the arm on to the shaft. Use a small drill bit or punch from the side opposite of where you started the roll pin and get the roll pin hole lined up. Should be able to drive the pin in at that point.

Achto I will be careful to punch before disassembly and thank you for the other tips.

I always drill and tap the lever for a set screw.    Then I align the lever and rod hole with a small tapered punch,  tighten the set screw to keep the holes aligned, , and tap in the roll pin.

      Sadly Dan @Achto informed me the the other day of a 857 and a C-120 that was deposited at his local county dump. Dump rules are  such that once it hits the ground it stays due to junkyard dogs going to fisticuffs over scrap steel. Understandable  Despite some hastily made plans of bribery,  chicanery and/or hook or crook to rescue them we failed miserably. We may get drummed out of the Mafia for that one.
      I'll let Dan fill you in on the details if he has the stomach.  I would like to believe that that our beloved  ones would be smelted down to produce more tractors but then I wake up from that dream. Sorry no bone yard pics not that we would want to see them.
      Dan asked me if he had a problem over grieving over these lost gems. You decide... So in memoriam I feel it is quite nescessary to post pics of our lost loved ones. Since I don't have a C-120 here's what I have of a 857.  Please post your pics of either models. True story, I wouldn't hose you guys and not just fishin  for

      Sold all three to one guy today..
      Sad to see them go, but...
      One of the reasons I’m selling is because I’m thinning my personal collection down to custom, modified only. So,  I’m selling all my “stock” tractors. 
      Ilk still have a few “flip tractors”, but hope to get down to about 4 I’m my personal collection.
      We’ve been up around a dozen for a year now.. too much to keep up with..
        I think these are going to a good home.
