Have my Speedex. Need front wheel bushings or bearings. Wheels take standard 1-3/8" OD size, but axle's are 1", not 3/4" like is most common. I can find the 3/4". Orig are thick bushings with flange, maybe aluminum?? and have broken off parts or splits. These also have a groove for the grease to get inside, the stupid zerk on these wheels is right on the bearing hub, way out. So, anyway, looking for bearings or Flange Bushings like it had, even plastic will work. I DID have some plastic ones off my 990 MTD that were 1" axles, but not big enough on outside on those. They must have been 1-1/4" wheel centers. Stores here have the flange rollers, but again only for a 3/4" axle, haven't seen bigger. I tried McMaster Carr and didn't see anything there either.

Pretty much any city will have a bearing warehouse. If you can not take the bearings in take the hub and they will find something that will work. I have gone to Standard Bearing in Des Moines ever since I was in High School and have yet to stump them.

I have bought bushings for a number of projects from the local Motion Industries distributer. They have a huge selection if you check their web site.
