Trying to find some wheels to replace the severely worn ones on the deck that came with my 120. They don't need to be a factory match, just something functional (I have a factory set on my other deck in pretty good shape but I'd like to preserve them). I searched everywhere I can find online and I can't find a hub/bearing diameter that will fit.

I need wheels that are between 6" and 7", preferably 7", ball bearing. The catch is that the hub can't be over 1 5/8" thick and it needs to have a 5/8" bore so the special pin that Ford used will fit thru and lock into the deck properly. Any tips on where to look?

Try our sponsors. Another possibility is NAPA, they have a small engine and mower catalog that has lots of parts by size as well as brand. Good Luck, Rick

Thanks for the tip, after I even struck out at McMaster-Carr I figured it was nearly hopeless and that I'd have to have the mounting pins milled down or just rig something but I'd rather not have to resort to that...

Well I solved my problem quite neatly and inexpensively. Since I couldn't find wheels to fit the quick adjust pins and didn't want to modify anything I decided to make pins that fit readily available wheels...one half inch bolt and a little time you can see what I wound up with... Here's a comparison pic between the original and the new one: uploadfromtaptalk1368994873071.jpg
