A friend came up with another axle, an earlier beam I believe. Otherwise, the front axle is completely apart, I should have kingpin bushings tomorrow and need to decide which way to go.
The tie rod ends are also some kind of hammered and need bushed.

Got the axle ends rebuilt, got some bushings in, machined on the lathe and pressed into the spindles. A friend gave me these honing kits, "precision hone" company, I don't know how old it is but it actually works pretty well for honing out the kingpin bushings, it would sure be a lot faster with a ream but I don't have anything in that area to use besides one too large and several too small. I think by what little instructions the kit had that this is designed to hone out piston pin holes, maybe wrist pin bushings. Anyway, at work this noon I found that my air drill makes it go a lot quicker than my electric drill at home. Also used sleeve locktite product to insure they wouldn't turn in the bore.
I also had this old sunnex hone lying around and thought about making it do some work, but the belt broke. I think it is actually a rod hone without the stand, I have a whole slew of stones and attachments for it and never have used it since I bought it many years ago.

Before we finished plowing I noticed the oil pressure had dropped to 15 psi, so I shut it down for the front axle rebuild and bought some more oil and a filter. Sure enough, the oil was black and thin again, and after removing the filter I found it to be collapsed. Fresh oil, left the new filter out, pressure is back up to 30psi.

Anyway, the detergent oil episode has made for a great story. When I told Jerry about it this morning he said;
"You gave it a detergent oil enema."
