Got a size or part number?

 

I can get a bushing thats like that but you'll have to drill the hole.

Baum Hydraulics has about any kind of bushing or bearing you would ever need.  In Omaha, NE.

Did the bushing you got ever work out? I actually have the same problem with the same snowblower I have. Have any tips on replacing these?

i ordered some.. it seems the shaft on my spare snowblower is different size than on my tractor now.  The "outside" end of the shaft is different size anyways.  I think i will just need to ream the bushings i bought or turn on a lathe.

IF YOU HAVE ACCESS TO A LATHE - make your own. I ran into that problem when refurbing my LGT165. There were lots of bushings in the mower carriage that were worn, but the shafts were worn as well. I bought a 12 inch bar of bearing brass and just made what I needed to fit each spot. And I still have plenty left for future use.

Bearing brass is EXPENSIVE - a 1 inch thick bar 12 inches long was $35 or so, but you can make whatever you need as long as the od fits. And probably cheaper in the long run than buying premade ones. a foot goes a long way....

Been a year or so ago, but my lgt165 rebuild with some pictures of the bearing making are on here if you are interested.

I would be interested in seeing the pictures. Do you have a link leading to the pictures?

Filled Tires, not sure I did this right, but here is a link to the post:

http://gardentractor...tures/?p=323529

If that didn't work it was originally started March 6, 2013, here in the Ford group and titled "Ford LGT165 Closed Side Refurbish Pictures". Post 20 is the one with the bearing pictures....
