I failed to mention the bolts that hold the fan on were tight, but that whole piece was loose. I am guessing this means I need a new water pump...

Sounds like it

Sure sounds like it. JD is proud of those Yanmar pumps. On my JD F935 they wanted $268 or around there, but I got the parts to rebuild it for around $60 shipped to me. I ran into serious probs, but got my pump repaired still, so maybe a nerw pump or send yours off for rebuild.

Could the wobble mean the housing is bad also? Or is it the bearing? And could this be the nasty grinding metal sound I am hearing?

Unless the bearing has frozen, the odds are pretty good that it is just the bearing and not the housing. The seal cartridge will have to be replaced also. Usually when the shaft starts to wobble you will see signs of antifreeze leaking around the shaft seal. Have you noticed any coolant loss?
The noise could be a number of things but the first thing I would check is to see if the pulley is rubbing on the pump housing.

No, not at all, I have really been keeping an eye on fluids as this tractor is new to me.

Odd thing is, my JD F935 leaked, but the bearing was good as new! Never was a bit loose & smooth as silk. But I bought the entire kit anyway. Not sure if I can find this place I bought my stuff from, as my computer crashed & I lost all the emails & info.

Just ordered, hopefully this is all it is and not the alternator at all.

Take your belt off and spin the alternator by had. If the bearings are rough you should be able to hear them. Also take the pulley lightly between your fingers and gently rock it back and forth about a 1/4 turn. check in several different positions to see if there are any tight or rough spots. There will be some friction from the brushes but that should feel the same for the full rotation.
Seems odd to me that the shaft was that loose with no leakage. Will be interesting to see what turns up.
