1959 Farmall Cub rear end bolts broken

Postby coonscrossing1959 » Mon Jan 12, 2015 10:51 am

I am trying to repair my 1959 Farmall Cub. 3 of the 4 lower bolts are broken. What is the best way to remove the bolts. Left handed drill bit?

welcome to the forum, I am guessing your broken bolts are where the final drive bolts to the transmission case?, left hand bit is a good start if you lucky they may back out, make sure your final and transmission case are not cracked from the bolts being loose and broken, should also have two dowel pins that align the housings and keeps them in place, do not leave those out or you will have more broken bolts
good luck Tim

If it is the ones that attach the final to the transmission , wedge front wheels, block the tranny and remove final, then drill out the broken bolts preferably with a left hand drill. If you are talking about the implement attachment bolts in the finals, make sure you are not seeing the remains of corks installed at the factory.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Cork or dirt! I've seen ones that looked completely smooth/filled in, and painted over, only to find that the implement mounting holes had never been used and were just packed full of dirt..... and painted over..... Gotta lover previous owners.....
