Tazza, Thanks, I will check out ebay. Also, I read a post earlier about a pin kit for the bushings on my skidsteer. They are the ones on the arms and are really worn out. Does anyone know what it takes to rebuild them or what the kit entails?
If you have a lathe they are simple. Just a piece of old chrome bar turned down to the correct size would do the trick. If you want to go one step further, you can get some 41/40 machine it them get it hardened.
The only problem you will have is if the bushing has also worn, new pins will only make a small difference. Unfortunately Bobcats don't seem to have replaceable bushings inside the bushing, if you know what i mean? like a replaceable sleeve inside the bushing where the pin goes through. When i do up my 743 i am going to do this, i will take an extra 1/4out of the bushings and machine selves to go into them, so when they wear it is a simple job of knocking the old ones out and installing new ones. No reaming and installing over size pins will be needed, its a shame Bobcat don't do this, it wouldn't cost them much more to do it this way.
As for the pin kit, i have heard you can get standard and over size ones. You will still have the problem of having to ream out the holes if you install over size pins, or if you use standard ones you will still have wear in the bushings. I have had minimal success in making over size pins and using a brake cylinder hone to hone the holes out. It took me ages on the drill to get one side done. If you are patient this may be an option, but you will need to buy a few cheap hones, or buy a cheap adjustable reamer.
