I am looking to change the front hubs and wheels on a Jim Dandy to the type of hub that the wheel bolts to instead of the one that you have to remove the whole assembly at once, was wondering if there was a kit to do this, it is serial # 14501E. Would appreciate any info and help I could get, Thanks Bill Dotson

If I remember correctly the Jim Dandy's had 8 inch front tires. 

Your best bet would be to get a couple of generic light-duty trailer hubs in a 4 bolt pattern.  Then with a couple of 8 inch trailer wheels you'd be ready to go. 

good luck!

Hi earlD, welcome to the group, don't think you'll find a kit to convert, but one place to check would be e bay, you'll want Power King spindles (they are shorter for the larger tires) and Power king hubs, if you want to stay with the 8" wheels you could search for 5 hole 8" rims and then use PK hubs. How about posting some photos of your JD

Here's some 5 hole  8" rims that may work  http://recstuff.com/...Ld8bxoCqM_w_wcB
