Farmall 140 Sector Shaft Question

Postby TractorDog » Mon Aug 05, 2013 8:23 pm

The more I read on here the more I see Boss Hog is the man when it comes to this site. I appreciate all your feedback on all the posts. Not to leave the rest of you out but you all are awesome.

If you look at the first picture on here I have the nut off and am trying to get the steering arm off the shaft. I am about ready to put a little heat on it. The nut is off but it is at the bottom and I cannot get the steering arm off. Would it be ok if I put a little heat on the steering arm and pry it off the shaft or do you have any good ideas. Not knowing the internals of how these are put together I don't want to break anything. If I get this arm off, I am guessing it will come out from the top.

The second picture shows the sector and it looks good. The top bearings at the top were completely shot (B). You can see it sitting on the steering box. You can see the groove where the bearing rides (A). I noticed the kit that Boss Hog posted has bearing replacements along with the bushings which is very reasonable. http://www.ebay.com/itm/161039244433?ss ... 1423.l2649

Once I get the steering arm off, should the shaft come off with the sector gear on it?

Anyway, I appreciate all the help from all of you.

That is not how it is suppose to come out :D , there is a retainer at the top with 3 bolts in it
You will have to put the shaft back in first. There is a snap ring that hold the bearing to the top of the shaft. The retainer will go on the shaft before the bearing. The gear and shaft assy bolts in, first then the lower bolster, the pitman arm will have to go one at the same time, then the nut. Yes a little heat will help.

In the process of taking mine apart for the second time in a month (too cheap to buy a new c clip) now its going to cost me time. Anyway remove the axle from the housing and you can get a small two jaw puller on the pitman arm and it will pop right off.
