Case 580 swing bushing day two

Recommended Posts

A couple bores are eg shaped one had broken bushing and allowed the bore to be beaton just over sized enough to hold the new bushing. That's the one I welded. I could change the welded bushing again but will likely never have to since the machine wont last another 10k. Weve got just under 11k on it.


Should have a shop do this but wed be a few grand in labor.  A welding machine can be the tool that makes most things work.


I've got 3 bushings to go. They're fighting me. Mostly the egshaped bores. Hoping to go back together Monday when theres two of us. I dont think I want to put the swing tower and boom on alone.

I do not like that I had to heat the one bore :( I doubt itl break but it bothers me. I heated it to about 400 is what my temp gun said


Was just thinking I'd give up but I got last bushing has to be burned it. Took very light taps to put it in. I want to ensure it doesn't rock or fall so I'm putting a couple short beads on it.

Put the pin in to ensure it stays lined up with lower bushing.


Were good till the rest of machine dies now. I can change these bushings again if I have to but it'd be a job. Isnt everything
