You said that the situation improves with reduced free play, so I don't think the problem is the bushing. Try reducing the free play further, (to almost none) and see if it gets better yet. That will help point you in the proper direction.

I reduced the free play to about 1/2” . That’s the most I can get and it didn’t get any better, worse actually.
The pilot bushing I put in looked to be the same size as the one I took out.
When I put the tractor back together it certainly was not easy. So I’m thinking the pilot bushing is too tight.
Is there anything else I should do before splitting the tractor again?

Is there any way that you can get some lube on the bushing?

I lubed the bushing with grease during install.
If i put the tractor in gear with the clutch pedal fully down and try to start the tractor the whole tractor will move forward.
