Ooops! Sorry I don't have one for you, but I wish you good luck. Maybe make one of the steel ones is a solution, like that guy across the pond did. ( IIRC, he was in Sweden)

Well its been broke twice before. The old man had it welded once. I was twisted up a bit pushing on a rock pile and I heard a pop and then didn't have steering worth a crap.

.

I'd try three of our site sponsors first, Rick Show, Bob Hill, or Joe's Outdoor Power, none on Ebay that I can see right now, probably can be seen as a weak link IMO ,however there are more surviving intact than broken so I don't know, but usually something is the culprit as to why it broke that's outside of the ordinary wear and tear ( ie 2-stage blower).

Two different versions of bolsters, basically differing axle support pin diameters, later model 23's they went to a larger pin (3/4" I believe ) the early LF models had bushing sleeves in axle for smaller pin, either will work you can bore the old style bolster out, or sleeve the newer axle to fit in an older bolster, have done both and had no problems, if sleeving the axle based on bolster is your choice, McMaster - Carr has the correct size plus longer lengthed ones

Ouch!

 

Hope you can find a new one and be up and running soon.

Did they ever use steel or were all of the ones cast?

My Dad replaced one on his 1476 (with a front end loader on it) with a torch cut plate and it's still working.

All cast,like Kevin said always seemed to be the weak point on them,the 2 stage blowers were always hard on them

Nothing like a pair of 51 year old machines to get a job done. 20.25 total hp. 1.75 less than the hdt 1000 by itself

Yeah get some!
