Brian, what's the OD of that steering wheel hub?

 

Will, It measures 1.758" with paint on it.

 

What are you thinking??

If you can't find a bolens chrome cap, the cap on a simplicity landlord

is the same size. So, allis...will fit too.

 has the 3 notches for the spokes, but no hole

for bolt.

Steering Wheel shaft and wheel are now separated. It was all my 30T press wanted and it sounded like a rifle when she let go. :D Lots of rust and rust pits on the shaft.

There's no shoulder on that shaft.

Good thing the wheel was rusted on, or it might have slid

all the way down the shaft.

The way it's captured in the tower with the gear on one end and the steering wheel on the other, it can't go anywhere. But if the wheel came off, the shaft could fall to the ground.

Found a Pulley and shaft but the price is way too high for a rusted used assembly IMO

I think I have a lead on the PTO engagement rod, rear fender/tool box, good steering wheel and a good drive shaft double pulley. I will know the first of the week on those parts. I did get to do more tear down yesterday in between the interruptions of work :D , I hate when work gets in the way. :wallbanging:

 

Here are a few photos of the brake setup on the trans. NOTE, the brake drum has already been removed from the input shaft.

I did bring home a lot of stuf to run in my small E-tank this weekend and will update as I can.

Kenny, From what I can figure out. The tractor has a brake on the drive shaft and also on the output shaft to the rear-end so you have a brake when it's in neutral.

Is that steering wheel 15" diameter with a 3/4 shaft?

Jerome, I think so, but will have to check. It's the same as the 600/900 I've been told.

My son has one of these Wards / Bolens tractors but someone had cut the hood up to put in a different engine.

He has found the correct engine for it but hasn't been able to find another hood yet.

 

If anyone has a hood for sale for this style tractor would you please contact me by email ?

I sure would appreciate it.

I am going to have to replace the plastic bushings that go in the left foot rest for the Brake/Clutch pedal, I will need 2 of them. I thought I had a parts list for the 600, but I can't find it in my downloads. Does anyone know if we have one here?

MF5 and 6 RERs use those bushings for front spindles. They should be easy enough to find.
