Hi,

Bobcat S175 with 3500hrs. I got it last year and it needs some love.

Finally got to replacing the bobtach pins/bushing. I got everything back together. However, I’m having trouble with the rubber seals on the lower hing pins binding up. I can use a pry bar and get the seal centered again, but when I rotate the bobtach the seals bind and squish out. (See pics)

Couldn’t find anything on this issue so thought it was worth an ask before the seals get tore up.

After considering the matter further, I re-examined the bobcat parts diagram and discovered the problem. Apparently there are two versions of my pin/bushing with my machine being the older style. While both styles use a seal at this place, the seals are different. I ordered the correct seals and expect this will resolve the issue.
