Bought a Wheelhorse 212-6 lawn tractor at auction yesterday. The 12hp kawasaki fired up and ran beautifully. Found rear tire flat..went to remove it and discovered that the left axle has a lot of "wobble" are there bushings or bearings available for these transaxles..on the outboard end...

most bearings/bushings are either nylon/plastic or brass. You should be able to find either to shim out the wobble. I have gone as far as cutting a sleave to use as a bushing from a cheap broom handle, but I dont recommend that.

You should be able to find a schematic of the transaxle by searching for replacement parts. then look to see if your model has or missing parts..

I use those schematics when re-assembling my transaxles to make sure I dont leave anything out..

here is an example:
