thank you for your insight. i have not tried heat yet and im told if heat doesnt work the small pins are soft metal so you can drill them out. will heat mess the bushings up? i dont want to replace those. thank youHave you tried heat? Are you talking about the keeper pin that keeps the big pin in the bushing that holds the cylinder to the tractor mount?
If so, maybe the pin has turned and the keeper pin is pinched. Can you raise the boom and work the bucket to see if the pin will turn and free the keeper?
