Want to tighten up the front end on your M-H 44 Standard? New king pins are still available through your local Massey Dealer for about $80 CDN each. I got Oilite bronze bushings (1.125"OD x 1" ID x 1.5" Long) from a local bearing distributor ($2.95 CDN each). Make sure you ream the bushings and drill grease holes once they're installed. For thrust bearings, I used NICE #610's ($11.00 CDN each); all parts fit like a glove.Derek Wilson -

We are preparing to manufacture new cast iron housings for the gear-type hydraulic pumps used on 66, 77, 88, Supers, 770, 880, etc. We have proto-types in testing right now. We hope to be able to offer rebuilt pumps with new housings soon. We will need to determine an appropriate quantity to machine for the first batch. I would like to know how much interest there may be in these parts from those who read this list. Please E-Mail or fax a note to 330-567-2033. Timing and price both uncertain, but we hope to have testing done in the next 4 to 6 weeks.
