Another newbie here....

Not to thread hijack too much 'cause we've almost veered there, when everyone is saying "bearings" are you actually talking about the plastic bushings that I've found in most all the 8" wheels I see?

What are you old-timers using for 8" wheels in your heavy duty rigs? Does anyone make real roller bearing wheels for a 3/4" spindle?  My project JD 111H has 6" wheels with real bearings.

Thanks.

Well it depends on the tractor I suppose.

Some do have steel or plastic bushings like you mentioned, while others have little replaceable bearings. The 8" rims I put on the front of the MTD in my profile picture have long straight roller bearings that are almost like a super heavy duty needle bearing. Then some older garden tractors, like my Allis B-110, have special rims than use races and tapered roller bearings.

That sounds just like what I'm looking for.....

Do you have any idea where you sourced the rims?

Or part numbers for the bearings?

Thanks again.

Okay, I've come up with these:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/BL-B1212-OH-Needle-Brg-Drawn-Cup-Bore-0-750-In-G2097518B-1212-Drawn-Cup-Needle-R/323627292919?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

which appear to duplicate the specs of the flanged plastic bushings.  

Have you guys been driving them in or are they a slip fit?  Do you use a spacer sleeve in between (inside the wheel)?

Looks like one would have to add a few washers to make up for the flanges on the ends, but otherwise, any other insight?

Thanks again and again.

I split these last few post and made a new thread, so we could keep the other thread on topic.

AK moved this while I was typing.  geek

More on the line of these for the ball bearing ones....
https://www.mscdirect.com/browse/tnpla/60967726

These are the typical metal ones.
https://www.amazon.com/Rotary-Bearing-bushing-9040H-532009040/dp/B004XJ42EY/ref=asc_df_B004XJ42EY/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=198076851563&hvpos=2o4&hvnetw=g&hvrand=14903308374665605694&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9026715&hvtargid=pla-319503375011&psc=1

That would be a bearing on each side of 1 wheel. Note the flange that keeps it from going in too far. If they go in and out loosely, you may need to peen the wheel a bit.

He he he

Sorry about the thread-jack. Embarassed

Yeah, Mighty, those are the bearings for the OEM JD 6" wheels, but I've got a pair of MTD 8" wheels with the 1" hub made for the plastic bushings I'm trying to retro-fit.

I can always find the hard way around.

Thanks guys.
