My neighbor has an JD L130. about 2 years ago, I replaced the front axle for them, welded up the front wheel spindles, and replaced the front wheel bushings with heavy duty wheel bearings. Yesterday, the front axle broke again, and apparently the "heavy duty" wheel bearings on the left side let go some time ago. On the up side, the spindles are still in good shape! God bless 7018 rod! However, the bearing races ate into the wheel hub and it is junked! I looked everywhere I could think of for a used wheel as the dealer want $70 for a new one. The JD part # is GY20563. Anyone know where the honey hole is for this particular part?

Ug, not really. Seems to be a common problem on these L130's. I might even try to replace the whole thing. Or the whole mower. Sorry I can't really help ya.
