Picked up this machine last December at Auction. Dealer hauled it in from auction, then I paid them to do inspection on it this spring. One of the things they found (that they said might have been the result of the hauling) was the bushing on the tongue pivot. Has anyone ever replaced that bushing?

There are two pivot points on the tongue, top and bottom, the bushing is riding up out of the bottom joint, and is a loss.

I'm thinking that I just need to pull the drive shaft apart and to the rear of the machine so it is out of the way, then can I just push that new bushing in, or do I need to lift the tongue completely off?

The "inspection" bill was already pretty steep...so I balked at the estimate for them to do the work. We are finally about ready for our first (and typically only) cutting, here at 4800 ft in Montana. Hope I don't end up sorry I didn't just let them take care of it!


Thanks, Pat
