The forgetting is just a factor of our ages. I've been fighting with my Ford 4500 hoses for three months. I changed them 15 and 25 years ago but can't figure out how I did it before.

 

What is your axle diameter? Will a hub from a Wheelhorse fit?  Good Luck, Rick

It's a tapered up to 1.125". Not sure what all tractors had 6 bolt hubs & the Peerless.

If it is going to be very expensive, maybe you could buy one of these and drill it for your bolt pattern? http://www.surplusce...1-4-TAPERED.axd

Massey 1655/1855  Bush Hog JBI also have the same taper & 6 lugs, but you'll not find those easily.  I used MF1655 hubs on my JBI, so I know they are the same taper & 1/4" keyway.

These are a 6 on 6" bolt pattern, Rick. So that wouldn't work too well. Glad you're looking & trying to help. I can use that!

 

I finished topping off the fluid a while ago. Jacked up the other side and ran it through the paces. No sign of leakage as yet!

Got a hub on the way! Since I found no excessive play in the outer bearing, I am hoping the new seal takes care of it. The original seal was in there a bit crooked, one side was flush with the housing and the other in just a bit. That could have led to it's leaking.

Broken hub was caused from the wrong tool for the wrong job, sorry to see that my friend :( . Bearing splitter type puller for any hub like that! Especially alloy, gad zukes! Let me know if ya's can't find one.... Might be able to whittle one out of steel for ya??

 

EDIT: DoH ! See ya found a hub....

My bearing splitter isn't big enough for the dia of this hub. 3 jaw puller did fine on the other tractor, though it would here. It didn't help with someone beating the daylights out of it before.

I ran it through the paces some more yesterday. Even jacked up the left side so it was higher. No sign of seepage with it full of fluid. Just waiting on the hub to arrive!

Got the new hub today! Got it on and tried out the new adjustment for the hydro. All is good!
