    Default Looking for a JD 855 Graveyard

    Last December my steering arm broke.

    I had it welded at a heavy equipment shop.

    The first time I used it, ...it broke.
    The weld didn't hold. It looks like the weld
    only penetrated 1/8" into the metal.

    I have contacted John Deere and the part is "out of production".
    This Tractor is only 13 years old!!!
    I think my only option is to find a "previously owned" part.
    There are no real tractor graveyards around here and I have
    called some of the major ones around the country with no success.
    Several yards have put it on their hot line with no response yet.

    Here is where I've tried;
    Weaver's Repair in Harrisburg PA,
    Wengers in PA,
    All States AG Parts in WI,
    Local places in UT and ID,
    and Ebay.

    The part I need is M806352 for a 1995 JD 855 4wd.

    Looking for suggestions.

    You need to weld it with nickel rod. Grind it down so that the joint edges are beveled to an edge. Then fill it in. There are probably several other options, including using a substitute part. The joint spline is important, but a small length difference won't matter.
    There is no "I" in team, but there is a "Me" if you want to jumble it up a bit...

    Try Roberts Equipment in Camden, OH. They have a site. They show that they have dismantled or have for dismantling a 855. Also use the JD parts site to see if the 755 and/or 955 use the same part. That may help broaden the search. Roberts also showed a 755.

    The part stretched as it bent and broke.
    The problem was the part was in two pieces and no one knew the correct spacing or alignment.
    The Tractor Shop welded it with Nickel rod, they claimed to "V" it out.
    I'm not sure they really did it right though?

    They wanted several hundred more to try to braise it this time.
    I said no thanks.

    I've emailed the guy on Ebay for a couple weeks now.
    I finally sent him some pics of the part.
    Still waiting.

    I'll try Roberts this morning.

    Where do old 855's go to die?

    Several hundred dollars? OMG. Never go there again!

    I was just looking at the parts break down and for axle serial# before 017048 the part# is m801965, but it says substitue #'s m806352 and am878440. For axle serial# after 017049 the part# is m806352 like you listed. How you checked availablilty of these part# and if they will all interchange?

    I can't get into the system at JDparts.com but all the dealers have told me it's out of stock but not obsolete?
    Whatever that means???

    Can you check inventory and see if any exist?
    In the past, no one has found in stock anywhere?

    Thanks,
    Glenn

    The salvage yards I'm calling seem to think it's a common failure part on that tractor.
