I have a pair of wheels and spindles w/tie rod off an unknown JD. These are 1" D, and had a c-clip holding them in the axle. Dummy me, I didn't think to grab the axle. Don't know what model they came off of. I would like to find an axle to go with them, but don't know what they fit. Any help?

Kenny the140 and older 300 series 312 14 etc have the 1" spindles. The 318 also has them but the axle bushing is longer to make the axle and spindle stronger and wear less under weight. One other clue is that the older 300 series axle does not have a grease fitting in the center pivot. One spindle will have a splined top and the other the circlip if it's a 300 based axle. Heres a pic to help . If you have a look at 318, 400 etc diagrams on JDParts you can probably identify the parts by shape. I'm not sure about the spindle diameter on 110 120 etc I guess they could also be from a newer tractor like a 345 or 425 x475 etc.

There is no spline. Drag link hooks under the axle, instead of on top.

Those are from a late model 200 series like the 210 212 and so on.

Those are later than both sets of spindles that I have for the 120. Mine use the friction fit pain in the keester to install bearing dust caps. Late square fender 110/112 or 200 series maybe?

Brian, I've exhausted all the models you gave. No luck! It was a squared fendered unit, w/ bolt on rear wheels. Can't remember much more about it.

Kenny. The fact that they are green was another clue. The newer GT's have black spindles.

What size are the rims that are with it. That might narrow it down a bit more. i think you are looking at one of the older tractors. Is that a Bearing in the rim or a bushing. That's another way to distinguish them.

Kenny I'm wondering if it was one of the newer GT's like a 345. It seems to me that the frames on those tractors were green. They would probably have 1" spindles as well. Just checked and all the ones with 1" spindles have power steering and have the spline on the top of one spindle. The ones that look like your spindles are all 3/4" like on the GT 245 for instance.

These both have the c-clip/snap ring slots at the top. The drag link from the steering box mounts to the left spindle below the axle ( pic #2, post #3). The 210 looks like these, if they are 1" spindles on it. May just have to make my own axle for these.


I looked again. The 210 parts pic looks right. These spindles(part# AM35185 for LH) were used on the following tractors:
1276 - 110 (250001- ) Lawn and Garden Tractor - 17May11
1277 - 112 (250001- ) Lawn and Garden Tractor - 30Aug01

1617 - 208 Lawn and Garden Tractor - 13Oct03

I think the 110/112 had the axles painted green so that may be the solution. I think they are black on the 200's. Do you have the axle as well? Are you going to retrofit this onto one of your tractors?

I didn't get the axle, that's why I'm trying to figure out what these fit. That was a thought, if possible!
