Sounds like you may have waited too long to fix a bad rear (inside) bearing and it galled thereby welding itself to the spindle. The best approach would be to replace the hub and spindle if you have a local source of used tractor parts. If not, you may be able to use a gear puller to remove the hub and an accetylene torch to cut off the seized inner race. If the grease seal area of the hub and/or spindle are worn/damaged to make it impossible to install a seal, you still may need to replace the whole assembly to keep grease in and dirt and water out of the bearings.

Thanks for the input. There is a used tractor parts business about 50 miles away. I will give him a call today. Is there any difference between the N tractors as far as these assemblies go? I will let him know it is an 8N.
I will take the old one apart to access damages after I get a new-used one. Just purchased the tractor this summer. PO must have used it a lot.
I am guessing that this wear groove also weakened the spindle. I do a fair amount of heavy FEL wood moving. It would have been a surprise to have it snap under load. Any other thoughts or hints are appreciated.

I think all 8N are the same.....but if others disagree, hopefully they will say so here. The 9N/2N will not work. Your used parts source person may have an opinion about interchangeability too, but be carefull because sometimes the person on the phone or behind the counter knows less than you and is willing to guess if he can sell a part......I would take the old one with me on the 50 mile drive to match it up before buying. Be carefull because the left and right are not interchangable so check the top of the new spindle carefully to be sure they give you the correct side.

Look carefully at the position of the woodruff keyway compared to the direction of the spindle axle. This is where the left and right side spindles are different.

Even though badly abused, it might be possible to save the hub. You can take out a badly damaged inner bearing race with an arc welder (stick or MIG) by welding a good hot continual bead around the inner circumference of the race. The welding shrinks the race and it comes out easily. An Oxy torch on that same race will probably nick the hub, as you usually can't see through all the rust, muck, and buggered metal.

Both the hub and spindle (and grease seal) can be ordered from this site.
