I am tearing down the transmission to my GT-14 and I found out that the key that goes between the axle and the rear hub is worn out.  Can anyone here help me to find replacement keys?  My book says it is part number 937046 Key # RX Woodruff.  I found some on ebay but the part number is 037108.  Wonder if these would fit. 

 

Did I mention that I have several very large hammers? :D

You can make your own from the corner of a piece of flat plate

Key stock is normally universal - square stock or woodruff, and are carried by most decent hardware stores.  Problems arise when keyways wear and the keys get sloppy on the hubs.  Then it is time to weld up the keyway and mill it out again (dremmel) to get rid of the excess movement.

I got a box of 80 woodruff keys from Harbor Freight for my tractor needs (on sale now for $7.99).

RX is the Woodruff key part number. Only thing is it does not tell us how hard the material is.

 

1/4"x2-3/4" -  Actual length 2"

 

The Wheel Horse/Toro part number should be 937108.

Thanks for the information.

 

The slots on the axles and hubs were pretty tight.  The keys had gaps in them.  Could be where the hub bolt hit them.  If I can get a picture of them, I'll post it.  I hope everyone can wait on the pictures until Monday.

Ace Hardware or others with those little cardboard drawers of special hardware.  That does seem pretty big, maybe not the place to find. Mcmaster-Carr should have them then, couple days to get shipped. Might wanna order something else too so shipping is worth it.
