Hi

 

I purchased a new set of front tires for the tractor.

 

1. My question is the first item to be removed is the cap does the cap screw off, and if so left or right hand thread or does it pry off ?

 

2. Mine has a greas fiting in the cap is that normal?

 

3. Is the king pin shaft tapered or straigh?

 

4. I believe that front axle on  4200,5200 and 6200 are all the same?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Many Thanks

 

Antique

If you mean the small cap in the center of the front wheel, you should be able to pull straight out on it to take it off. None of mine have a grease zirk in them that I can remember. Look at this photo. Click on it to enlarge.

King Pin Shaft? Are you asking about the shaft that the wheel is mounted on (spindle), or the pin that holds the spindle assembly to the end of the axle? 

The spindle is stepped with two bears on it. There is a nut under that cap that holds everything together. Cotter key has to be taken out then the nut and washer. Pull the wheel toward you and try and catch the bearing as it slides off of the shaft so it doesn't get dirty. The back bearing should stay inside the hub unless the seal is shot. 

As far as I know the axles are all the same but I could be corrected on this.

Thanks Cvans

 

It was exactley as you decribed the the removal . I found that the grease fitting was on the hub of the front wheel.

 

The removal of the tire was quite challinging as I believe it  was the original tire.

The tractor must have operated in a wet field or marsh for years the inside of wheel is quite rusted.

I will look for a new set of wheels rather than take a chance with the old front wheels.

 

Any sujestions for source of wheels I find a lot of 8" x 5 3/8" wheels have barings with 3/4' ID

 

I did check the king pin assembly an it is a 1" shaft that the wheel mounts to with  the washer an nut with slopt for split pin. 

 

Thanks
