I have a MTD tractor that is not supported by MTD in either the US or Canada!

The Model# is 147-834-599

Serial# 41-027-14743

MFG Date F066D

They cannot find any record of this model of tractor! Pictures below!

I have checked and re-checked these numbers on the tractor so many times I know them by heart!

I suspect it is Canadian made as there is french on the model # decal!

I need the 4 wheel bushings for the front wheels on this tractor.

They are for a 3/4" Dia. wheel spindle, wheel opening for the bushing, is 1.25" ID overall length of bushing is about 1.165, bushing flange is about 3/16" thick and 1.5" OD. (on the one I measured) I need 4 of these and I'm not having any luck finding them here! 

I even tried MTD support in the US, and Canada too, they do not recognize that serial # at all. A 1985 MTD Legend series, after I talked to them, I found that Model 834-327 shows the bushings as part #27 but, does not show a MTD part # for item #27, Thanks in advance for any help you can provide! 

Regards

Brian

Tractor almost looks like my YT16H Ford tractor, which was made by Gilson. But it does say MTD on yours. Go to a local mower shop, and see if they can match up some thing. Just a thought.

Is it a bushing or a bearing. Post a picture of the part your looking for, that may help.

This is almost identical to your tractor.

#27 Bushing part number is MTD 941-0312 or MTD 734-0312 or this depending on what size front wheels are on it (15 x 6.00) Rib Tread = # MTD 741-0382

 

I think I would just go down to your local tractor repair and sales place and get 4 Brass bushings the size that you need.They will last alot longer VS the nylon ones if you keep them greased.

Welcome aboard a lot of fine folks on here I'm sure can help. Do a google search for White by MTD. They badged many GT's back n the day. Don't feel bad I have a MTD 990 badged Turf Trac that has model numbers that don't show up nowhere. It looks nice & well maintained. Does she run good.

Thank you sir! That is the correct part # for my tractor!  Now, I can call my guy tomorrow and get them ordered!

AGAIN, THANK YOU!

Welcome to GTT. Check out our Manuals Section. Good Luck, Rick

I did check it out, mine wasn't listed. Maybe that would make good research for someone with more time!

Here are the wheel bushing pictures for Noel.

Tractor looks like common 990 or similar smaller version.  McMaster Carr.com has those bushings in many different ways, good prices if you don't won't Hardened ones and shop fast.  Site is real easy to find things on also.  My local ACE hardware has common brass ones, think they are same. Listed by common fraction sizes.  I've had those plastic bushings and they are usually busted up, don't belong in a wheel I'm thinking. Least you have 3/4" axles, not 1", which are real hard to find bushings for that fit in wheel hole. AND, why not just check out common wheel bearings for trailers?  Or again ACE has common shoulder bearings with flanges too. Not sure if heavy enough, but better than plastic would think. Cheap too!  Take a wheel along and try the ones in it. The 3/4" size center will be common, need to check outside. Was thinking most wheels were 1-3/8" center hub holes??

Should be able to get bearings that would fit. Massey and fords have bearings in the front wheels. I don't have a picture of them, but if you took that bushing with you to a mower shop, they may be able to get bearings.

I just replaced the 1" bushings on my 995.
Five bucks each. I'm sure I could have done better but $20 and it's done.
eBay had em.
