I am in somwhat of a crossroad situation. The front rims on my725 have bushings instead of original bearings and are too big for the shaft. The rims are good but rusty. I would like to fix them up but by the time I get new bushings sand blast them, paint them I am woundering would I be better off buyying new??? My qestion is,,Does anyone know of a place to by rims for these tractors with a 3/4'' shaft ? I am also getting new tires for the front. I have called a Sim dealer and they had trouble with it,,,,werent to friendly Thnx Herm

Been a while since I restored one , but I think the front rims on the 700's used bushings instead of bearings. I wonder if the rims you have are from a earlier 700?

I believe Sam is correct about the earlier ones(700 WB and 700) using the bushings. I have run into that myself once or twice. If you feel like making a trip down I'm sure I can hook you up with a trade for the rims and maybe even decent tires too. I have both sizes of tire machines so swapping tires around isn't a problem either..
