D vs DC Wide Front

Is a D front axle narrower than a DC (not row crop)? I currently have a D axle under my DC and have been curious. I could also really use the axle spacer for it if anyone has one. I know John has 'em new, but used would be great since I'm on a tight budget. And hey if anyone wants to trade a DC front end for a D let me know!

This is my D axle under a DC, note the spindles are nearly even with the body of the axle.

I am very confused and facinated with this subject. Not having a profound knowledge of front axles that were used on the various models. Maybe, someone could post some pictures of the different front end set-ups and configurations. I learn best with pictures. No I'm not from the "Show me state" but should be. gobble

The D and DC-4 front axle is the same thing. The spindles are different. The front spindles are lower and that gives the front axle more ground clearance on the DC-4. The spacer that fits on the axle on the DC-4 will fit a D.

Just to get the termonology right-DC-3 is the row crop version with the both the narrow and wide fronts sticks out beyond the radiator. The D has fixed rear and front with small tires that the DC tractors. The DC-4 is the wide front where the axle sits under the radiator. the later DC-4s have the heart shaped part to hold the front axle and is more desireable than the older style fronts. DC-4 has adjustable rear wheels but front is not. As you know the D rear axle is not adjustable. You should be looking for a DC-4 axle.

Yes I know the difference, thanks for the info though. I'd most like a DC-4 front end, but if the D is the same width, I'll leave it on there and just get the spacer. If not the same width, I'd like to find either a DC-4 or even a DC-3 narrow front end. Really don't care which, I just want it to sit right and not have the front narrower than it should be (if using the wide front). Hope that makes sense.

Today's Featured Article - Recollections of a John Deere GP - by Charlie Cook. I grew up on my dad's 280 acre general farm in Western Michigan. Dad's only tractor when I was very young was the old GP. My first recollection of this tractor was when dad allowed my brother and myself to ride on the tractor with him driving. One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
