How difficult is it to replace the front spindle bearing and bushings on a 1959 601?

Please excuse my ignorance, but is the spindle the same thing as the axle pin?

Hunter, I think you are talking about the single front axle pin. I'm talking about the front (two) wheel spindles.

REcommend you get a real brand Ford/NH Repair Manual first. Follow it to the letter. Easy job.
Don't get off-brand or IT Manual - waste of money.

I'm assuming this is an all-purpose or wide front, tractor. The worst part is usually removing the old bushings. They're usually worn very thin and it can be a pain to get them out. Sometimes it's worth removing the outer axle from the center section (after the spindle is removed) so it can be put in a vise for better access. I've had some that I've had to drive a thin, narrow screwdriver blade (which I've modified for this job) behind the bushing to split it lengthwise, then pull it out. Inspect the spindles, they're probably worn in the bearing areas. Worn spindles will eat up new bushings in short order. The thrust bearing just slips over the spindle so it's usually quite loose. Hope this helps...

Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
