I'm curios how long have you had them on.Is the bright orange on end of spindle a spacer? Usually with two piece taper wants to walk out of race. Hence the pin able nut to keep the constant pressure.Are they wanting to work loose?

Yes it is a spacer. There is no slop in the hub, so it would not walk out of the race. What is pictured is only a temporary setup. Unless it works.

I can see there is no slop in hub the spacer is what I noticed so if in time the constant turning back and forth works against the cotter key and loosens up the spacer means you have room for a caste or slotted nut application if spindle is not to hard to thread.

Like I said, it's temporary unless it works. lol
Castle nut would be very good, and ideally that is what you would want. I'll probably end up going that route eventually. I would need to buy a 2nd pair of spindles to do it though. We'll see what happens. maybe this time next year I'll pull it apart and see how it's holding up. Then make alterations if nessessary. My tractors are not exactly worked hard, or often.
