Improve the steering on your 520 equipped with 1” spindles, by replacing the thrust bearings.

This complete set (thrust bearing and two thrust washers), is an identical replacement for the OEM parts found on your Wheel Horse 520 with 1” spindles.

Unlike the parts from McMaster & Carr and others, these washers are the 1/16” thick, not 1/32”, meaning you won't have to double up on washers. And unlike the parts available from Toro, the price is reasonable.

 

Toro part #252-66 (old #9865) Thrust-Bearing, $7.84 each

Toro part #9845 Thrust Washer (2 needed), $10.64 each

 

My Price:

Thrust-Bearing/Washer Kit (1 bearing, 2 washers) - $15.00

My swept axle machines have had the thrust bearings cleaned and re-greased. Never seen a bad one, only bearings so packed with old dried grease and dirt that they would no longer function properly.

 

For the standard axle machines I punch out 2 1/16" thick teflon  washers per side and install them in the same place as the thrust bearings in the above diagram.

That reduces friction and the machines steer much easier.

Other models without swept front axles have the 1" spindles and use these as well.
