    H120 Loader problem, pivot pin bolt loose but nut is tight.

    I have what appears to be a loose nut where the hydraulic cylinder attaches to the bucket of my H120 FEL. If you look at the photo, it is the nut that also holds the bucket guide bracket. You can see there are no threads showing. The bucket guide bracket is VERY loose - I don't remember it being that loose before (tractor has 290 hrs). The cylinder on the other side has lots of thread showing (other picture).

    My problem is when I try to tighten the nut, it doesn't want to budge at all! I even used a two foot breaker. The loader manual says to torque the nut to 110 ftlbs, but I think I will break the bolt if I twist any harder.

    Anyone have any ideas? I don't want the cylinder to come off unexpectedly.

    Thanks

    Looks perfectly normal to me. matches mine. The reason you don't see threads in the bracket
    takes up that space compared to the opposite side.

    Beautiful beaches, moderated summer heat and lake effect snows. Right where I want to be.

    This may sound like a stupid question, but can you loosen the nut and remove it from the stud, or did you simply try to tighten it?

    I tried to move it both ways. It is stuck. I don't remember the bucket guide being this loose.

    The image in the parts schematic shows 3 "Washers" which are the number 5 in the image on the actual mounting bracket bolt.

    If it matches yours (no threads past the nut), then I am okay. I just don't remember the bucket guide being that loose.

    If the nut can't be loosened, I wouldn't worry about losing the bracket.

    The space the bracket takes up along with the 3 washers would certainly result in less threads showing on the end of the bolt. You could always loosen it with an impact wrench if you have one and then re-tighten it with a torque wrench to be sure it is correct. But if you don't have an air impact wrench or a torque wrench to re-tighten it, I would simply keep an eye on it.

    You can't lose the bracket if the nut won't come off.........

    By the way, welcome the the GTT forum.......

    I feel like my bucket is very loose and has a lot of slop, is that normal?

    I can't say if it is normal, but mine has always been loose. I notice it only every once in a while.
