Yeah thats what I'm referring to. I performed this adjustment recently on one of mine. It had some slop just as you are describing,It should tighten right up if you turn in those nuts on each end.

Your main place to find parts will probably be on the web. There is a sticky posted with some Bolens parts suppliers. The good thing is there are still many parts readily available for these.
From what I can tell this should be a simple fix and you probably will only have to take the one hub apart.

I guess no parts supplier in Canada? To access the bronze bearing you go through the bottom or just pull the hub and not the axle. would i need to replace the oil seal, thrust race and bearing as well?

This can all be done without taking the cover from the top and bottom off.
If your careful you wont need to replace the seal but since you got it off you mine as well. It's been a little while since I had a tranny appart but I believe you can just pull the hub off and do the work there,

I think Bolens parts dealers in Canada are slim

I guess i will just have to suck it up and pay the shipping, the guy i bought it from said that these tractors are built like a tank and should have no problems with it. It starts and runs fine, i had to put a new battery in thats all so far!!! I don't think it is charging the battery because the battery went dead today not sure if it is because i've been not running it for any length of time or something else. I will see about getting the parts before i open it up and try to solve this problem.I do appreciate all your help.

Like I said earlier, you should be fine to use it as is for the rest of the season so you have something to move snow.
The guy was right when he said these were built like tanks!

Another possibility you may consider is looking for another used Tranny. Most of the time your better off picking up another tranny for $75-$100 instead of buying over $100 in parts...
