My 420 loader is quite wiggly, with about a quarter of inch in lateral wiggle in the mounting masts.

I was looking at the way it mounts and it seems the claws on the loader have worn. Is the accepted fix for this shimming up the mount point?

The JD "shim" kit was just different thicknesses of plates to tack weld on, you can make your own.

Ok, makes sense.

I'm thinking about running a tubular support between the tops of the masts after I stiffen them up. (Unless there is a reason not to. )

I think that would help prevent this sort of issue in the future.

It wouldn't hurt, that's for sure.

shims work, also, the dealer showed me that loosening the bracket mounts on the tractor and rotating them a bit also takes up part of the slop. When I say rotate, only talking with in the bolt hole distance.
