While dealing with the load control shaft issue, I decided to go through all the lift components. I bought this tractor used with mower attached and never messed with the leveling links until now. The right link mechanism is locked up and will only turn about a half turn. I've been attempting to get into the housing to see what needs to be replaced and am having trouble removing the bushing from the housing. I've tried penetrants and heating the housing. Is there another trick to get this thing out? Yes, I did flatten the washer which was bent over the bushing.
Thanks for any suggestions.
