changing the front support assemble

I purchased a WD with dual front wheels with a bad spindle. The tractor came with a whole front support assemble. My questions is to replace the front support is it just a matter of removing the 8 bolts on the side and the steering shaft? Does anyone have any tricks to changing it out?

You are correct when you say side doesn't matter. I did the left side because the belt pulley is on the right side and I didn't want to take the chance of having the cork gasket leak when I was done. I went all the way back and was glad I did. I needed 3-4" and I don't think I'd have gotten that without going to the axle. The OP could also drop the entire spindle block off with 2 bolts and just change the whole bottom end of the pedistal. That would be the easiest.

I thought about changing the spindle. I removed the pin but couldnt get the spindle to budge. Thought there might be another bolt I was missing. Changing the spindle would be much easier as far as I can tell. I think I'll give that a go again. Will I need a piller of some sort?

There is no bolt....per the parts diagram- just a driven pin. Yes, likely need a puller. Regarding loosening a side rail...side doesn"t matter, and certainly not necessary to go all the way back to the differential to get enough slack, but yes, remove one bolt between the side rail and the angle iron on the front engine mount....either side, to get some slack between the rails. Details...I&T AC-11 manual.

You need to remove the 8 bolts on the pedistal, then loosen the left frame rail. The left radiator bolt, engine support bolt (under the front of the engine0it's an angle iron), and the left frame bolts at the axle housing. Also need to remove the steering shaft. You'll need a good pry bar and about an hour or two of time. I have a trick for the raidator bolt if you decide to replace the whole pedistal instead of just the spindle.

BTW- you could just switch spindles......they are held in place with a driven pin. Clean the area well and look for a hole or pin....chances are it"s horizontal. It is near the inner end of the spindle.

Should be an easy swap. Will help to loosen frame bolts a ways back, remove one of the bolts holding the engine support angle to the frame, and pry the rails apart. Can use a jack to hold them apart.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: JB Weld - by Staff. JB Weld is basically an epoxy glue that does an exceptionally good job of bonding to cast iron and steel along with several other materials. As I mentioned, it is so common that I have yet to buy a tractor that did not have JB Weld used somewhere. It is sometimes used so well you can't tell its there and other times used as a sloppy quick fix. Finding where and how it can be used correctly is key to whether you are using it as an "inelegant hack" or an integral solution to difficult and expens ... [Read Article]
