Where did you find the 2 peice?  I would like to change the rims to something easier to work with.

Here's the links.  I got the wheels and hubs seperately, too.

The trick is to ask for the 3/4 bearings when you order the hub instead of the 5/8.  Even when you get the 3/4, best to check the condition of your spindles, too because the 3/4 bearings wont slide on if they are worn too bad.

Here's another option. Sucks there's no picture.. but should be a direct replacement front wheel/tire combo.

Thanks guys, im looking into these options.

 

About 2 weeks ago I sold a Craftsman lawn tractor to a guy on Craigslist, I had some brand new tire for lawn tractors that I had gotten given to me from a local business that was sending the to the tar factory.  This was only because the tires were discontinued and new stock came in.  So I gave about 14 tires to this guy who was getting a small engine business off the ground.  When he was at my house he noticed my Panzer and asked what I needed to finish it.  Since I gave him all the tires, all brand new with nubs still on them, he wanted to help me out.  I mentioned that I needed a new carb for my Panzer so I can get the engine running.

 

Last night I got home there was a box with 2 flow jet carbs and a walkbehind leaf blower and a carb that that machine needed as well.  I was taken back that this guy actually followed through with what he told me he was going to do, I wasnt expecting anything in return.  There are still some people out there that appreciate what others do for them.  I was taken back.

 

Just wanted to share this story.

Thats right I have to get her going now, I grabbed a small pallet so I can bolt the engine to it and get it started without getting all sorts of crap on my nice paint!
