Deere 4400 tie rod removal
|bill b||I'm trying to replace the tie rod ends on a JD 4400 tractor. The tie rod spins on the steering shaft and there doesn't appear to be any way to hold the shaft from spinning to get the tie rod off/on. Can someone enlighten me as to how to properly remove the tie rods? Thanks.
|SmokinDog|| Are you saying, when you try to remove the nut
holding the tie rod end to the steering shaft the
whole thing spins??? If so we in the shop use a
air wrench to zip off the nut. You can hold the
tie rod end from spinning with a tie rod removal
fork. If your doing this at home without proper
tools it can be a real headache, Other wise nothing to it.
|bill b||Thanks for the reply. You've confirmed my worst fears. Looks like I'm in for a real headache.
|bill b||Well, for anyone who does a search for this, I found my shade tree solution. I held the steering rod with vice grips, put a little heat on the nut and it popped right off. Dodged another bullet.
|SmokinDog|| GOOD DEAL !! Brain power will get it every
time. With some good ole common sence, You must
