Rubber Washers

Tue May 26, 2009 8:08 pm

I was looking at replacing the rubber washers on the transmission drive shaft joint on my 130.

There are 8 required. Part#43550

No longer available says CASE IH.

Any ideas on aftermarket, or suitable replacements?

Thanks,
Ed

Ed, have you actually called a dealer rather than just looking up on line? I have had a lot of problems with parts saying not available when I looked them up on websites, but were still available. Sometimes the part number had changed, sometimes there was a difference in the way the number was entered (spaces, hyphens, etc.).

Yeah, what John said. You left the "D" off the part number. It is 43550D.

I'll try that with the D when I call the CNH dealer again.

Have you tried ebay???

Bigbill,

No I did not think of Ebay. Hmmmmmmmmmm.....

Mudflap sounds like a great idea. What can be so special about 8 rubber washers?

I suppose thickness, and elasticity are the biggest factors.

They have to be strong enough to stand the torque of the engine, the bolts actually push against them, using them like shock absorbers.

Rubber hardness is measured by durometer, the higher the number, the harder the rubber. Rubber changes durometer somewhat as it ages, thus a used part might not have the same properties as new. If scarcity of these parts appears to be near, it would be very useful if the person finding a new one would take it to a commercial/industrial rubber supplier for identification of the durometer and other characteristics. Such suppliers can get equivalent material and cut it to any shape/size required. The specifications would be most welcome for my records.
