Here I go, thinking again! I have a pair of 1" spindles off an JD (don't know what model). I haven't looked, but was wondering if the Ford axle ends are beefy enough to be opened up to accept these. Would be a stronger set up. I have the wheels to go with them.

You would need to open them up to 1.125 and install bushings with a .062 wall . Might be pushing it ? If you had a spare one, then you could give it a try.

I'll look into it. I will be out there today. Before doing anything, I will pull one of the Ford spindles and see if angles match up. Just in thought process right now.

I decided to install a new 3/4" shaft in the mower lift (instead of welding it). Got the old one out yesterday. Will cut a new piece to length and weld in today. Holidays sure mess with parts getting here. I have several things out there somewhere.

Upon closer inspection, it doesn't look like the JD spindles will work with the Ford axle. Oh well, I'll find another use for them.

Looking at the old pin, that is real similar to the one I took out. I kept it to use elsewhere, maybe a hitch pin for the trailer.

Update. Bushings are in town, out for delivery. UPS is usually by here late in the day. I'll have something to do tomorrow.
