I am building a Custom 6 puller for my grandson (5 yrs. old) to pull in the light classes. It has a broken hub, 1" keyed shaft, what other tractor has the 3 bolt hubs and can I convert it to a 5 bolt hub, it is a peerless unit 3 speed. And could I swap it for a different transaxle with a high/low option. Thanks for any help.

Wheel Horse has 5 bolt hubs that are 1" diameter and have key-ways.

transaxle out of any old suburban will fit.Rear frame section and 6 speed out of a SS16 would be strong enough + it has splined hubs.No keys to shear off or splitting of the hub at the keyway.
Would be easier to just swap the rear frame section then mess around with cutting the hole for the Hi/Lo leaver and mounting the bracket underneath.
If you can't find anything this might be an option.Looks pretty close to ya.Maybe this fella will sell the parts tractor to ya cheap and just swap the whole rear frame section with transaxle.It's a 6 speed.It will still have the 3 bolt hubs but they will last for a while till you can find a good transaxle with splined hubs to put in it.

If I were you, I would watch for one and see if you can't just slide the hood and dash from the Custom over.
Eric's suggestion of transplanting the whole rear end could be a viable option also.
