LA852 & L4610 - bolts gone

Got off the tractor tonight and noticed a bolt laying on the left side loader mount. I’m glad I noticed. I wonder how long the other 2 have been missing. And the top one is broken, which Looks more like a stud. Yay.

At least the last one is still holdin' on, instead of having whatever is bolted there hanging down and bending the frame on the other side...

Maybe also go over the rest of the visible bolts on the tractor with a wrench to make sure they are still tight...

Re: LA852 & L4610 - bolts gone

Well, fortunately there are like 10 bolts holding each of the mounts on. Iím starting to wonder if the recent oil leak on that side (and thatís another thing!) caused oil to get on the bolts and allowed them to loosen up.

I ordered a couple M14x1.5 bolts from Fastenal, which should be in tomorrow. Apparently itís a pretty uncommon bolt size and pitch.
