    Default 1973 Ford 3000 diesel

    I have a ford 3000 diesel with a front end loader,areally nice tractor ,been in the family since new. Well today the front axel support beam broke in half on the left side of the tractor.so i took the front end apart ,every things off, im now down to the pin that holds the support beam in place. the pin has a 1 5/8" hex head on it its reccesed in a hole in the housing,,I cannot find a socket with walls thin enoughto get it out, went to ford dealer he was not much help, said i may have to cut it out with a torch , < yea right> a new pin is 60.00 bucks...does any one know how to get this thing out.

    If it's a bolt that has to be turned to come out as opposed to a pin, you will probably have to grind down the outside of a socket until it will fit. If you have access to a lathe, use that of course to turn it down. I've had to make a lot of special tools to get the job done.

    There is a person on here, Soundguy, who is very knowledgable on Ford tractors and could probably answer your question. Try sending him a PM.

    You find the person you are looking for ie (Soundguy) then click on his or her name, then send PM to that person....simple
    If only farmers would look after they're tractor's, I wouldn't have to repair them so often..!
