front hubs

Recommended Posts

I have been told that there are 3/4" hubs/spindles avaialable, that are usually used on trailers. However, I have never been able to find them. If you do find hubs that will fit on the 3/4" spindles of our tractors, please let us all know! Tom

I just used a set of the narrow rims from a 710 to put tri ribs on my 716H. Unless you plan to change wheels often, I don't see the need for lug bolts on the front wheels. You can probably use trailer hubs that have one inch spindles and shim them with a bushing. I know they make narrow 8 inch wheels for the 4 lug hubs. I have a set of them.

HI Trailer hubs for 3/4" axles are fairly common, the only problem is they may be to wide for the spindles to reach through. Might have to throw them in a lathe and bore them deeper for the bearing cups and then cut the edges off. Probably will have to put a collar on the spindle for the seal to run on and to space the cup out. Al Eden

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
