JD 7000 Closing Wheel Conversion

I've seen kits somewhere to convert the roll pin style closing wheels on a JD 7000 to the bolt on type. Can anyone out there tell me if the newer style bolt-through bearings will work the older style closing wheels? I have some bearings that need replaced and I was hoping I could upgrade the bearing style and re-use my old wheels. Thanks

Just take a tie rod tuning fork type of spreader tool. Find one that is just a little over 3/4 inch across the middle and it will take them right out. If you get one out then just take a small rod and drive the other side out. The cross tube is just a pipe bent and welded onto the wheel frame.

I usually have more trouble getting the two aluminum halves apart. The engineer that thought Philip's headed steel screws in to an aluminum housing needed to be shot. Heat and an impact driver will usually get them. When I can't get the old screws out I drill screw heads off. The with the wheel apart you can heat the half up and work the bolt out with a good pair of Vise-grips. I always use the new hex head screw when going back together with a lot of never-seize on it too.

The closing wheels are different. The newer bolt on style have a larger bearing in them.

Before 1994 they had an aluminum casting and plastic after. The closing wheels are the same after 1994. JD 7200 and 17 series planters.

What's wrong with the roll pin style?

I never had many troubles replacing them.

What would the bolt on advantage be?

Just wondering??

The problem is that they are all froze up tighter than heck. Got all the roll pins out no problem but the bearing posts are siezed up in the sleeves. Thought if I'd convert them to the newer style I would never have this problem again, and I'd have the option of going to spiked wheels later on.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see I just heat them up with a torch and get them off. In a pickle I've taken a handheld torch but it takes a long time.
