    Default Re: BX Tie-Rod boot ripped

    I have been through three already in a year and a half. The dealer replaced the first two under warranty. How big of a deal is it to change them out? I was just wondering how long I could go with it ripped.

    I went for years with mine torn. Finally changed them when I had the front axle pivot leaking. easy change out, then set toe-in.

    Hey oldtommyboy, partnumber is NOT in the diagrams. This is a years-old problem and you could be the hero. Do you have your invoice..... with the partnumber? And please confirm this is for the Kubota BX.

    Thanks!

    Oldtommy, this is great. The **only** thing better is if you were to confirm that they are an exact replacement boot! Can you post a pic holding it up next to the original? I think members would like that.

    Default Re: BX Tie-Rod boot ripped

    I have been reading this thread & not to hijack it but what I did for my BX24 when the boots got torn from brush, was I ordered two universal tie rod boots part #40193, also uses Massey part# 1885486M1. These boots sell for about $3 to $4 at most tractor supplies, online, & EBAY. TSC has these boots in a kit, but you have to buy 6 boots, 4 of which are not compatible & the kit is $20. Note these boots are not an exact replacement but the difference is so slight it is hard to see. They fit my BX24 perfectly & I was able to reuse the original metal retaining rings. Then so as not to have to do this again I used TECHMANç—´ idea of using a piece of 2 1/2in. nylon hydraulic hose covering held on with tie wraps to cover the boots. The nylon cover material can be purchased at any hydraulic hose place by the foot. Mine was about $8 for a 1 ft. piece. I used a heat gun to seal the ends to stop fraying & a soldering iron to punch holes for the tie wraps.
