Had Farm King wheels brought down to me to work on. Found four BIG plastic bushings in them. No grease, no zerk for grease. They knocked right out with no damage. Wheel was too small diameter to fit over my tire changer center, durn! Tires were soft enough I got them off OK. These bushings look old and not worn at all, guess they must work pretty good. Wouldn't be MY idea of material, but whatever. The wheel is too small to put in bearings that I have had in others, so guess they will be going back in. I now have spindles and three bolt wheels I got off epay and plan in future to put those on tractor, hoping they just bolt up w/out mods. My wheels painted, now to get the new tires and be good to go!
