Sickle Mower Bushing Replacement

Tue May 14, 2013 10:52 am

I want to replace a sickle mower flywheel shaft bushing. Any advice on removing the old one and installing the new one? I tried tapping the old one out and it does not want to move. It makes me wonder how hard it will be to tap in a new one. Thanks, Lee

Lee, I used a long piece of 1/2" or so pipe coming through from the opposite end driving the old one out. If I remember right the new replacement bushing was split and easy to install. It also cost a little over $40.oo from a IH Case dealer. :shock:
