Can any of you old farm guys help me ID this disc.  Model/SunFlower?  Year?  Did anybody have Sunflower make discs for them that were YELLOW?

I love the thing because it is heavy and cuts anything we put it on.

I need to replace a bearing and would like to have a bit of info before searching for parts.

No idea about who built it but it does look like it uses standard pillow block bearings.

That's what I was thinking also Chris.

I am pretty sure that Sunflower built it but can not find a # on the machine.

I wouldn't worry about original just Google pillow block bearing for info on sizes. You'll find a massive selection from Northern Tool, Amazon, Mcmaster Carr, Grainger etc. I would prefer Grainger if you had one local where you could just walk in & compare. Nice rig a guy could do some damage with that.

I believe I found something.  Seems to be a Taylor-Way.  Built by Taylor Pittsburg out of Athen, TN.

 

Thanks all for your help.

Called the # on there web site and no answer.

Went to All State Tractor Parts and they have not heard of that brand. :wallbanging:

Took a ride out to the disc area and no bearing housing that style. :(

Will keep my eyes open and see what turns up.  At least for now I can do what to PO did to keep it going.

I love this disc to much to do that. :wave:  This thing will stop a 100 HP tractor with singles if you drop it down.

Have you tried Napa? Pull the bearing and take it into a Napa store. They will measure the bearing and find the right one. My local Napa has never let me down and I have brought in some pretty odd stuff.

 

What is the width of that disk? Sounds like it's to much for my Farmall 400 (50hp)
