    our Case 1840 has been a great little machine, however we have always had one major problem with it, the damn mounting bolts on the tandem pump sheer off every couple of months. We have replaced everything, bushings, splines, etc and it still does it, anyone have any suggestions?

    Sounds like it's time to move onto bolts and leave the pins in the toolbox.

    Not 100% postive but I think those bolts are tapered... that are not just any bolt that you buy at the harware store. I have my 1840 parts book here at work, at lunch I will look them up and let you know if they are tapered.. Itf they are I will post the case number ..

    so we have everything checked out, with the exception of the pump face. However someone has suggested that we could put a small tack weld on the pump to the mounting plate, we are going to give it a try because at this point i am at a loss
