Just out of curiosity, does cranky have 1" spindles/axle? I am looking for just the axle, as I have spindles and wheels for 1". They came off a JD that looked similar to Cranky, but all that was left was the fenders and frame.


Kenny, his front axle uses 3/4" spindles. If you are still in need of a 1" spindled axle, let me know. I have an extra out in the shed. It came off of a 1972 140.

Well, it's either find an axle or offer these spindles & wheels for sale. LOL I'll shoot a PM your way.

Some of the sites on building an FEL have instructions for upgrading to 1 inch spindles by using spindles made for utility trailers. Places like northerntool sell them. Just an idea - can't say I've actually done it.

I've seen those. But you almost have to have a machine shop to do what they say. I do not have the ability to bore a hole larger that 5/8". To me. it would be easier to change the whole axle out!
