I have a Case...

I have a Case 580K backhoe and the boom pivot pin started to slide out. Is there a pin retainer for this.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

It is a 1988 Case 580 K Sn# ***** a 4X4 unit

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

The breaks with the former owner

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the construction mechanic to know before I connect you?

It seems like there should be a retainer for the boom pivot pin.
