Farmall A Fail of the Day!

Postby southern-jim » Mon May 08, 2023 4:30 pm

I was plowing and noticed that the front right wheel has not done as well now that the plow steering bracket is on the front. Then this wheel flipped around sideways. Does anyone have any idea what needs to be fixed?

Yes, what tst said. The steering arm has a setscrew that engages a tapered hole in the top of the spindle. The setscrew was probably loose. The inner end of the setscrew is probably now broken off and stuck inside the spindle. The setscrew is on the outer side of the arm and sticks out over where the wheel should be.
