I can't say for sure, as I've never worked on a 400 series, but I know with my B-series machines, I add a bronze bushing to the rear (and front, and everywhere else for that matter). Makes a nice, replaceable bearing that soaks up wear and keeps things nice and tight. On my FEL machine, I even bored the pivot out and bumped up to a larger pin and bushings.

on the 300's the pin is static in the frame of the tractor...
there are 2 bronze bushings in the axle.
these bushings are still available from Simplicity
but you could probably find generic... the pin is NLA

drive the bushings out from the opposite side of the axle
with an impact rod and press in the new bushings.

hopefully the pin is not too far gone but you could easily have one made
there is also one now on ebay but they do wear... if your pin is worn
it might be easier and better to have one made.

of note, your diagram appears to be of a 300 axle and a 400 pin
