Hello, this is my first post on this forum, thanks in advance for your help. I recently bought my first garden tractor, a used Scott's John Deere S2554, 25 HP, 54" mowing deck. The front left tire was already bubbled and developed leak after first use. I took the wheel off to take to local shop to replace the tire, and of course with the age of the tractor, I also realized the front wheel bushing and wheel spindle were badly worn. I bought replacement parts, and installed the spindle with no issues, but the bushing I was going to upgrade to sealed bearings part number AM127304. However, this does not seem to be the correct size, it won't slide onto the spindle. Does anyone have experience with this model and upgrading the bushing to sealed bearings, or do I need to stick with bushings for the front wheels? Thanks a lot!

Welcome to GTT. I do not know the answer to your question but I want to direct you to our Manuals Section where I believe there is a real good shop manual for your tractor. I will try to find it for you and post it below. Good Luck, Rick

This is not exact but should be close: http://gardentractor...42-s1742-s2046/
