 J-Pin Won't Stay Put on Belly Mower

One of the J-Pins that holds up the front of the 60 inch belly mower on my JD 4400 keeps coming out. After each acre mowed, it is necessary to beat the J-pin back into position before it comes fully out. The dealer suggested bending the J-Pin and I did so, but that didn't help much--actually broke one since I bent it too much. I even tried drilling a hole in it for a cotter pin, but it is not possible to drill the material of which the J-Pins are made. Lucky me--I had this same problem with one of the J-Pins on my previous 955. Have any of you had this problem and were able to solve it? Mike S.

I had the same problem with my 4300 and the 60" deck. I was able to drill a 1/8" hole through the j-pin although I destroyed 3 or 4 bits in the process. I have not had the same problem with the 72" mower on my 4600.

We have a really high-tech solution...the Handyman's Secret Weapon... DUCT TAPE!! A little bit of this stuff around the end of the offending pin will keep it in place during even the longest mowing job over the roughest land. Best of luck.
