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!

One thing that I cant get over while im taking this tractor apart is the quality of the metal. Its got some rust but the thickness of the metal is by far fasinating. These tractors were made to last and they did.

I bought some Dupont Spectramaster Green paint. The color is about as close as I could get to the original color. I was going to spray the whole tractor with the paint gun but im thinking that just to get it a little thicker on the chassis I may paint some of it with a brush. Anythoughts?

Wow - you've been busy, alright! After all of this work, I'd stick with doing it with the spray gun. If you do it with a brush, it will look like it. What did you use to strip the dark blue paint off? Easy-Off Oven Cleaner works great without removing the original paint underneath. Looking good so far :thumbs:
