Front hubs

Recommended Posts

Guest
I remember a while ago reading something about adding hubs to the front wheels. There were a bunch of pictures of weld jobs and so forth but someone mentioned a now hard to find 3/4" trailer hub. Well I found these: [url]http://www.acmemowersports.com/3_4_rear_hub_1.html[/url] Anyone think that would work???

I didnt browse that site to see what else they had but those will not work for front hubs, they are keyed to the shaft (drive axle) for the front you need something with a bearing. For my mini truck I used some off an old trailer but I have no idea what make or anything, just something I had laying around, and I had to make the spindles longer to use those.

Remember that you do not need hubs like this to upgrade your front wheels. All of the 8" front wheels from large frame tractors (landlord sovereign type) have real roller bearings, and will fit right onto the existing spindes for the older Broadmoor tractors and the 4000/5000/6000 series. If you still want to go with hubs, the ones from mfgr supply will work. Tom

I would put the hubs on a LandLord (or a 2210) so I can make longer steering spindles and put larger tires on the rear. Plus I just like the look :)
