    Can't attach toothbar.

    Last year I bought a new 3039R. I ordered a toothbar that crimps on the FEL, from Bucket Solutions. Bucket Forks, Tractor Forks, Loader Forks by Bucket SolutionsIt arrived and was installed by my dealer. At the end of fall I removed the toothbar for snow work. I just went to reattach the toothbar and ran into a problem.

    The teeth are joined by a bar and they slide over the lip of the bucket. There are two large bolts through the bar that screw against the bucket, pinching the bar on the FEL. There are also two end teeth that extend about a foot long under the bucket. The top of these teeth then attached to the bar with 3/4" bolts that are threaded into each end of the bar. I attached one long tooth and it was fine. I went to attach the other end and find that the bar is not tapped. the ends of the bolts just slip into the large holes at the end of the bar.

    I have no recollection of how it was held on last year. Anyone have one of these can help????

    When replying or posting a message, scroll down below the message box under Additional options. You'll see a tab labeled Manage Attachments. Click on that and see whether your type of image is within the size limits. If not, you can resize it. The other option is to use a 3rd party hosting. I use Imgur, I don't really like it for anything other than hosting. There are others out there too.

    Is this what you have? It appears there is a nut welded to the bar which a jam bolt threads into. Nut missing?

    That is it. My problem has to do with the very last tooth, not with the green jam nut screwed into the bolt. On the right side, the bar is threaded and the two bolts fit fine. On the left side, the bar is not threaded the two silver bolts just drop into a large, open and unthreaded hole.

    When you did this were they threaded or not? I mean you should have noticed if they were just laying in there.

    Unless they were overtightened when installed and when he removed them it stripped the thread out of the tooth. I would check the bolts to see if there is any material in the threads.

    The holes are much larger than the bolts and have black paint in them. They were never tapped. I was guessing JB Weld the nuts to the bar??

    Look at the underside of the bar......maybe it is counter sunk for a flat head bolt and they come up through the tooth on that side???
    JB weld is good stuff but that application is way beyond it's ability to hold anything.
