Any secrets on how to remove this pin? It has a lot of slop in it and we want to put a bushing in but can't get the pin removed. We've soaked it with no result. We've used a bolt and nut in the linkage hole under it and tried to force it off that way (thanks to Steiner's video) with no result. I've welded up some angle and made a miniature press and it still won't budge. The area around it is cast and I'm not sure if heat would do it any good or harm anything? What do ya'll think? :?

We've beat on it but it won't budge. I think we're gonna have to invest in a small press and go from there :eek: . It may be the last thing that we do before finishing prep work so we've got a little time to think about it. Thanks for the reply and any more that might chime in. ;)

Be careful I have heard horror stories of folks taping it with a hammer and the brittle cast iron ear breaking off.
Here is waht I found with a quick google search, http://www.ebay.com/itm/John-Deere-Hand ... vi-content
Thanks! That is a whole lot like what I welded up out of angle iron. It puts a great deal of pressure on it but the bolt that I have in it slips off the pin. I'm thinking of heating it up while putting that kind of pressure on it. It's gonna be atleast a few days before I can give it a shot.

Duh. THAT bolt. I just had mine out. It has straight knurls on it. Such a fun job it was to remove. That puller they have on ebay is backwards from the one on my 60. On my 60, the bolt comes out away from the tractor.

I may need to go look at mine to remember what I did. Yet it wasnt that difficult to do.

Hammer + cast iron = possible really bad day!
