John Deere 420 loader quick hitch pin boss rebuild


New member
Hello Again:
The quick hitch on my John Deere FEL was almost worn out. The lower pin holes had walled out to the point that it was difficult to change attachments without getting off the tractor. I repaired the pin holes by cutting the holes large enough to accept a pin boss made from DOM tubing and welding it in. The DOM tubing provided a nice new 1 inch hole with more wear surface.

I posted a few picture on this site and I posted a video on Youtube. Here are the links:

Thanks, Mars
P.S. A picture is worth a thousand words and a 10 minute video has about one hundred thousand pictures in it.
