Fast Hitch adjustment frozen in place

Postby staninlowerAL » Thu Apr 07, 2016 6:19 am

I have one that the left/right adjustment at the rear is frozen. I've removed it from the tractor, tried heat and penetrating oil along with the biggest hammer that I have. So far, no luck. Any tricks or suggestions? Thanks, Stan

Mine was rusted in place as well and I had to put it in a 20 ton press along with the hot wrench. It was still a bear to get off but it finally gave way. Good luck with yours!

Same here. But, the technique worked.

:Dito: :Dito: Except the guy I knew had an 80 ton press. :shock: Came right off and part of the cause was the bar was bent. He straightened that, too.

What's the reason for taking it apart? I'll bet mine is frozen but I've never thought of a reason to work on it.

I want to give the mower belt a bit more room than it has now. It does not touch but it might under some conditions, besides that, it is supposed to move to adjust so I want it to do that. Just me, I guess. Stan

Has to move to accommodate using a 194 plow. Freed mine up years ago. Once free keep lubed or moved around to limit sticking. Start with a gallon of kroil, lol!

Honestly if its not readily available Id go with PB blaster. Been using it for years and its never let me down. Not to knock Kroil or anything.

The best place is direct from the factory. Kano Labs. http://www.kanolabs.com/ They occasionally have good price deals.

Availability: my local "old time" auto parts has it and he orders from the manufacturer. Gulf Coast Marine and Industrial Supply is supposed to have it also. As for freeing the part, I have found someone local with a 40T press and am supposed to get it done this week. Stan

I have recently seen Kroil advertised by several companies that sell gun cleaning supplies. They are claiming that it is great for cleaning guns particularly removing lead from gun barrels.
