I've not tried to change those.

Are they not "driving in"  all the way?

They seat properly at the flanges, yes.

 

But the center sleeve (the part in contact with the axle) sticks out 1/8” and I’m head scratching.

Design change perhaps?

Time for some washers! I did this to my restored rj58 because at the time i couldnt find the original front rims to save my life. Some day I will get some original front rims. Its all painted and perdy and works so i have left it alone. This is the only thing i wished was better on the restored rj58. I went threw this whole machine inside and out.

I’m already out of axle length.

I can’t add more washers.

The thing is, someone told me to switch to sealed bearings to make it easier and less maintenance heavy (no grease).

 

But I didn’t expect to run into this shenanigan.

 

Nobody mentioned this.

Perhaps a spacer that measures 3/4 OD to match the axle shaft and (3/8??) ID to match the bolt?

McMaster Carr would likely have something...

I bought a set of those bearings off eBay about a year ago from a different vendor. I'll check them when I get home tonight to see if mine have the same issue. I did not install them yet, but will be very soon, have a long list of things to do to my WH

Meanwhile, I need a rototiller, like, immediately.

 

Anyone that has one of these things; can you tell me if this will work on this 74 C160 Auto?

I couldn’t find one locally, so I went out and rented a full hydraulic unit.

 

15 mins into the job, the Honda motor blows and the Horse has to pull it back to the trailer.
