I acquired my late father's Ford LT75 garden tractor and mower. The tractor is in great shape, I fixed a gas tank pinhole, replaced the brake pads with a work-around from a Honda CX500 motorcycle, and restored the charging system. Where I am foundering is that one of the blade spindles has gone to heaven, (perhaps a bit lower), and I have exhausted the internet, 4 Ford dealers, 12 lawn mower shops, 2 bone yards, many bearing shops, e-bay, and have not found a replacement.
It is a one piece (water pump style), 4-1/2 shaft length, 2" barrell length, and threads for pulley mounting. There seems to be nothing out there. I am considering mounting a replacement spindle under a wood spacer disc on the lower part of the deck and rigging the pulley to line up. If anyone has one of these decks, or spindles laying around, or have jerry rigged a replacement, I would be most appreciative. The grass is growing more every day!
