Check to see if you have a bearing company around your area. Where i live at (Pennsylvania) there is Erie Bearing Company. When ever I need bushings or bearings I just take the old ones to them and so far they always had what I needed and at a good price. So I would check around and see if there is a company like that around you. Sorry not to helpfull. Just an idea.

If it is a standard size bushing it may be easy to find. If not , many of the parts are still available from the Agco(MF) dealers. I got new front wheel bushings for my MF8 from the dealer.

The nice thing, about these older GTs, is that many of the parts are standard, from one machine to another.
Back in those days, they didn't build stuff with planned obselecence, and exclusive parts in mind. Many of those
standard wear parts are available all over the place.
Example: bushings for front axle post for MF7 thru 16. 3/4" id x 7/8" od
available at and bearing place, auto jobber, fastenal...... $0 .99 each.
Same goes with tie rod ends, wheel bearings etc.

In this case, I'd go to Agcopartsbooks.com
You're working on a 12?

Search for 12.
Turns out the axle pivot bushings are part# 831007m1 6 pc req'd (4 for the posts)
3/4" id x 7/8" od.

And when you buy them, get a bag of 20 or so, because you're gonna need them, now
that you're addicted.:smilewink:

Ordered some today from fastenal. 3/4" long-$1.50 each
As everthing else, they've gone up in price. 2 years ago from Canadian bearings they where $.99 plus shipping. Fastenal is local, so no shipping cost.
Last year, $1.30 from fastenal.
