    Newbie iMatch quick hitch and JD Ballast box question

    Hello,

    I purchased a JD Ballast Box today for my new 1025R. I also purchased the iMatch quick hitch. I read that I needed the bushing kit and purchased one. (BW15056)

    I am a little confused on the install. I think I have the lower bushings for the Ballast box correct, please see the picture with the roll pin. (Assuming I just hammer the roll pins in?) But, I am confused on the top pin on the Ballast box. I have taken a picture of what all came in the bushing kit. I saw another thread about putting the two smaller bushings in the kit together, but I cannot see how they will stay in? Am I missing another kit or just clueless, lol.

    I appreciate the help!

    The ones with the knobs get roll pinned on the lowers with the knobs out. The other ones just slides over the pin you put through the top. I have a Heavy Hitch so you can't see the top pin when engaged but there is a bushing over the pin the iMatch is engaged on

    I can go get some pics if it would help.
    That would be very helpful. Does it appear I am missing parts, or do my pics show that I have all that I need. (Besides a clue)

    You have all that's needed for bushings. Will need a pin for the top hook. The bushing you show on bottom pin in pic will go over pin for top hook. The bushings with the "lip" goes on bottom pins of implement for bottom hooks of quick hitch to connect onto

    Does the pin for the top hook not come with the imatch or the JD Ballast box? Assuming I can pick one up at tractor supply or Home Depot. But, I just wanted to make sure they did not short change me.

    Any tips on removing a half installed roll pin. Let's just pretend I tried to install the bushings on the bottom in my pic and have a half installed roll pin.

    Yup you can get the pin at tractor supply. I've used a bolt when in a pinch but a pin is better. If the roll pin isn't fully knocked in just turn it over and use a punch, small bolt, etc to use as something to rest against roll pin and pound it out with a hammer. The top pin doesn't come with imatch or implements

    That is exactly what I tried, but it is not budging. About 5/8" is still sticking out. Ugh...

    I suggest a B.A.H. I installed the bushings onto my box blade and then discovered it wasn't quick hitch compatible, haven't had time to make it compatible yet but needed the blade so I had to remove the bushings. I had to beat the snot out of the roll pins to get them out.

    Okay, I just took that roll pin out to the wood shed. All is good now. Now I just need the top pin and should be good.

    Thanks everyone!
