Good Morning Tiger Joe,

Last year I changed the axle pin and bushing on my Ford 3600 tractor. No washers and no spacers. If you look at the attached parts diagrams for a 9N and 8N, you will see no washers or spacers. My axle is basically centered on the pin. The radius rods hold the axle relatively centered on the axle pin. There must be a difference in the 9N/8N support castings to cause someone to put washers and spacer on your axle pin? I would install a 9N support on your tractor and leave the washers/spacers off.

I have never thought about it, but it appears to me that the designers/engineers allowed for the axle to move forward and aft as necessary plus rotation on the axle pin. The radius rods hold the axle relatively centered on the axle pin. I operate my tractor on flat land so I do not have much axle motion.
