Probably wrong section but I know a lot of guys with GTs want bearing hubs for the fronts in some applications. Here is a decent option, not sure the thru bore but I bet they would fit most GTs, just thread the end of the spindles to fasten them on properly.

I wonder if they would be better than original spindles like with a FEL on?

the guy thats selling them says he'll send them with 5/8" or 3/4", tapered bearings, which ever you want.

The tappered bearings are what you want for steering. As for an FEL, I don't know how well the spindles will hold up but the hubs will improve the handling I am sure. Even if you just use them on the snowblower tractor or something, ya know, lot of weight up front.

Yeah that is what I meant would they hold up better than original spindles with the weight of a bucket full of dirt in a FEL.

My Case 600 series loader was designed with 1 1/4" tapered bearing hubs from the factory. If your going to try and put a loader on something with 3/4" spindles your probably going to break it pretty quick. I've seen 1" spindles broken but if your going to do it then use the trailer hubs from Northern Tool.

Alot of small trailer hubs and bearings will also fit some GTs.

Josh tha's good that your thinking ahead, the stamp steel hub on my 2418 broke last year , even though the loader came from the factory it wasn't made like the Case cp7 has .

I used trailer hubs on my 317 "Special", had to move the backer washer in a little, but not much (replaced it with a plate to hold the fender). ~~ grnspot

BMIkarts has a billet aluminum 4 on 4 hub that uses a 1-5/8" x 3/4" precision bearing, versus the standard 1-3/8" ball bearing most GTs use. They use to sell a steel 4 on 4 hub with a grease zerk that used the standard 1-3/8" ball bearing in 5/8" and 3/4". ALMOST EVERY trailer hub will need a 4 inch stub spindle, for the most part garden tractors have 3" stub spindles, They make a short hub, 63.00 each, that will work on a 3 inch spindle, but most tapered bearing hubs are going to be a 1" bearing. I believe the 1" inch ID L44643 is dimensionally OD the same as L44633 or what ever the number is on the 3/4" tapered bearing. For any FEL application it's best to replace the spindles with 1" or-1-1/4" spindles with 4 inch stubs, that way you can buy the small trailer hubs for about 18.00 and add the 10 inch 4 bolt wheels and tires. I've been testing different application for several years and its not just the weight of the tractor/loader, but the force exerted in turns that requires the need of a thicker stub spindle and tapered bearing. The added benefit of the taller10 inch tire/wheel will be less of a need for power steering, on a large SGT you can even use the 12 inch tire wheel if your running a 26" or larger rear tire
