Sears front wheel bearing hub and assembly
I was a bit negligent in not greasing the front wheel often enough (once a year) and letting the bearing hub go to the point where that got worn, the front axle assembly got worn, and the opposite side of the rims where the axle goes through got worn as well. It looks like I have to replace the L and R axle assemblies and both front rims.
I can get the front axle assemblies for about $26. However, the front rims (15 x 6) are around $56 each from Sears.
Has anyone purchased new front rims and tires for a Sears/AYP tractor from another source?
Looking at what happened here, I can appreciate why the better tractors (like the John Deere X300) use ball bearings for the front wheels. I know, I should have greased the thing more often than I did, so I admit that this would have lasted longer if I had done that.
