front axle

Postby Jack » Tue Sep 12, 2017 3:19 pm

I was working my cub out in the field and noticed a sorta banging/knocking noise in the front axle, so I went to the garage and I found that the shaft that goes through the axle has a lot of back and forth play in it. that is where the noise is coming from, should their be some kind of washer or spacer between the shaft and where the clamps bolt?
thank you in advance.

Yes, there are "shims"/thick washers that go there as needed to take up slack. I believe TM Tractors (a forum sponsor) has them (link at bottom of page):

A machinist might be able to whip up some thick washers if you can get him an accurate enough measurment. Ideally there should be spacers on both sides of the pivot so the spacers provide a wear/thrust surface instead of the clamp itself.

Hi,
Below are pages from the Cub parts manual showing the washers, there are supposed to be 2, one at each end of the pivot made on the axle tube.
They are numbers 12 and 33 in the pic. :)

Many faarm and machinery places sel machine shims, you need the diameter of the shaft. Also can probably get them from Mcmaster.com
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
