front spindle bearings

Recommended Posts

i am finally getting to the point of putting the thrust bearings on the spindles. the tractor is a 2012 landlord. i have read and reread the article in the resource section. i vaguely remember a posting about keeping the washer square to the spindle. someone had made a jig to do it or had a little trick to hold it while the JBWeld set up. it is not in the resource article. can anyone tell me where to find the post? or how they did, or would, insure that the bottom washer is square to the spindle?

Can't say that I remember a discussion about keeping it square to the kingpin, but you might want to try a set screw collar. The spindle and kingpin is 3/4" diameter. Tractor Supply or your local hardware store will stock a 3/4" set screw collar. Slide it down against the washer and lightly tighten the set screw. The face of the collar will be as square to the kingpin as you need. Come to think of it, you don't even have to buy one. You already have one on each spindle to hold on the wheel bearings.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
