Dipper pin is giving me grief

So I’ve been greasing all the grease points on the backhoe and when I got to the dipper pin . A bunch of water came out. I went to move the dipper around a bit and it started to moan pretty badly.
Then I got some wd40 , pb blaster followed by red and tacky spray grease. Moved it around and it still sounded like crapp. I greased it a lot with the ole grease gun . Water came out from the joint and some mocha mouse from the pin itself. I moved it some more but it sounds like the thing is about to fall off.
Any advice on what I should do next? Or keep moving it and greasing it ?

I agree with you, Guy. Taking it apart sounds like the way to go. Taking that pin out could be a huge can of worms , if done wrong or in the wrong sequence. So I was going to go for the easy way first. With that being said, I’ll pump a few squeezes of grease in it , move, wipe and repeat. Until clean grease comes out. I hope the moaning sound stops well before that point.

I would keep pumping grease in it like Guy said and exercising it. Taking the pin out is probably not that difficult with a big hammer and then cleaning rust off of the pin and out of the holes. Putting the pin back in may be a real pain due to alignment issues.

This particular pin holds the entire assembly together. Kind of like that screw that holds the two pieces of scissors together.
I imagine that if the whole thing is not pinned somehow that the arm will drop and then will be a huge pita to get back together.
But I’d do it as a last resort

If you need to take it apart and are concerned, there is a Case dealer fairly near you in Greenville. I've bought some odds and ends Case parts from them in the past. They are very friendly and easy to deal with and have a Service Dept. You might want to call them and see what they would charge to pull the pin, clean everything up and reassemble. As you know, the Case backhoe on the FLU419 is mostly the same as a Case 35C civilian backhoe. I'm sure they have performed this task many times in the past on a lot of backhoes. I've dealt with a guy named Chris in the past.

It's not a big deal to pull , you just have to support it.
