Hi. I don't know what stage you now reached but I've been trying valiantly to reengage my brain. Thoughts are.(If you cant get correct bearings)
1. Your suggested shim should work. Or have 2mm groung off the back of the cup, the roller bearing will still fit in but it will protrude 2mm toward the wheel. Or just put the overwidth bearing straight in. At worst it means your bull gear will stand proud(overlap) by 2mm and I cant see any thing which that would foul and you will only lose about 2-3% of driving surface contact. MTF

Thanks Mike. It seems we are thinking the same. The bearings i found are $87us each which is a lot better than $180+ for the correct ones. I struck out in trying to find used ones. One local place just wanted to sell me the whole tractor. I think they are liquidating their salvage yard. Depending on the year and condition i might just go ahead and buy the thing for spare parts.

I am going to order the bearings and then do a test fit to see how things come together. 2-3% loss of surface should make any difference. Most of the time i will be using the backhoe part of the tractor and won't be farming with it. I'll post my results when I have it figured out.
