That's why I built this:

Works very good at holding these small wheels to put the tires on!

With that 50 lb. weight in the bottom, could be a bunch! It just helps hold the wheel still while prying those tires on and off!

Purchased a pair of braced spindles from Georgia Deere on eBay to add to the 120. Looks like I am going to drop the axle, replace the bushings, then paint it and the new spindles before I reinstall it. I have opened a big can of worms...

Nice spindles! Those should help out the steering a bunch!

Since one spindle is damaged it needed replaced. The price was good on these and I thought they would be a good addition since it will be used with the model 49 blower. I hope to pick up a blade for it too. They should be here tomorrow.

Picked up some green paint from TSC this afternoon. Looks like the hood supports will get sanded, primed, and painted this weekend. :thumbs:

Spindles arrived and they are in better shape than the spindles on the 120. I cannot wait for the weekend to play in the garage.

Those are 4 ply tires so I was planning on going tubeless. Should I go with tubes since I am running the snow blower?

If the rims are good & smooth at the bead, either way is fine. Mostly asked due to the difficulty airing up tires that are compressed so much from packing. Those shouldn't be too hard to air up tubeless. I like to use a blowgun with a tip to fit into the stem. They will flow a lot more volume to swell the beads to the rims than just a std air chuck.

I got the beads very smooth and clean when I painted them. These were shipped in a large box and their shape was not compromised during shipping. Thanks for your thoughts!


One thing that I noticed on the spindles is that the new ones do not have the turn limiters that the original 120 spindles have.
