1980 R Model Kingpin Replacement

Recommended Posts

Hello--

I need to replace the kingpins on my 1980 R Model tractor (twin screw). I believe the front axle weight rating is 10,500 lbs. I have not done this job previously. Will someone give me the basic procedure, and any special tools needed? Is machine shop work needed? I may take this job to the shop if the procedure is beyond my means.

Thanks!

Come on fellows, somebody help David with these king pins. I have never seen a tapered pin set up, taken apart. HELP HELP HELP.

I replaced the king pins on my 70 dm quite a few years ago and they were the tapered pins, yes you have to take the new pins, bushings, and the spindles to a machine shop to be fitted or honed, I can tell you it's not a fun job. I don't know if an 80 rd has the tapered pins or not.
