On the axle with bad woodruff slot, if you could fab up a copy of the key in brass, then you could simply lay it in the damaged keyway slot, then weld the axle & direct the molten weld up against the key.  The brass won't fuse and the weld runs right up against it, leaving a pretty good repair.  Then once finished, remove the key and carefully use an angle grinder to grind the weld down till it's all good & round again.  I did this on my 1st John Deere F935 with straight keys, and it did super.

Nice machine you have there, sweet engine upgrade!  What size tires is that machine sporting?  I was thinking of the same configuration on the tires as this will likely never get a mower deck on it.

 The rears are 23x8.50-12 Deestone AG's. The fronts are 4.00-8 Deestone Tri-Ribs. Thanks

Todays project was to do something with that keyway in the rear axle,,,, well I ended up doing a combination of suggestions,, I ended up welding one side of the keyway using a brass blank I made up and then since the other side was worn but not bad enough to get the welder in there I used a pric punch to deform the metal to close things up on both sides, ground things up nice and smooth then put a flat spot where the 2nd locking screw makes contact with the axle,,,, lets see it tear that up!!  While I was at it I managed to get the other hub off and put a flat on that axle also,, hopefully it should be good for another 40yrs?  Maybe tomorrow I will get the trans all painted up and ready to bolt to the frame,, thats IF I can get the danged freewheel screw to break loose, Grrrr pita thing been spraying juice on it since I got the thing and still stuck fast,, tomorrow it may get the hot wrench, done playing with it!

Transmission is back on the frame and all hooked up,, next week I better get moving on rims, tires and the engine.  Currently chasing down what looks like a nice later model 42"  single stage blower and blade,,,,, Unless I run into something terrible Im gonna have less into this thing fully equipped (snowplow, snowblower, weights, chains, moldboard plow, and disk) than buying a blower and weights, chains for the X300R, heck I might even be under the price for a new 48" blade and weights!

The previous owners son said they bought the blade and blower new and only used the blower twice, it shows as the paint is still on the auger, and inside the chute, it was also kept inside, its good as new, the blade even has the WH sticker still on the front edge,more dirty than used but not as close to new as the blower, they also had as close to a NOS WH sweeper as you will find.

Go buy the sweeper.. then sell it.. serious..  BTW.. NICE score.. i guess this means more time for your tractor as the attachments need nothing..

How about that I finally got something I dont have to work on before I can use it :smilewink: ,,,,, I dont think I got the deal of a lifetime with these and I paid the asking price without a blink but,,,,,,,ya suppose they was worth a buc and a half a piece? That blower is sweet 79360 model all original paint and decals.  Yes I have the flag! and the helper spring for a manual lift tractor.  The blade is also complete including a nice rear mount, the one on the tractor has noticeable wear from running a tiller.
