I have been rebuilding this disk and need to know what make and model it is in order to start looking for replacement parts. It is a 12ft disk with reddish orange paint on it. I thought it was a faded out International 37 disk, but when I went to order a new axle, I couldn't find a 64" axle listed. So I got to thinking maybe this is a Kewanee or Alice Chalmers or something else? I've added some photos to let you see what it looks like. Thanks in advance for any help identifying this disk.

First series Keawannee (don't think it had a model number)and no Shoup does not have the bearings, only for later units (with model 100 & up) with sealed bearings. His should have white iron bearings that are greased 2-3 times a day. IfI would have the money I would be getting several out of a junk pile for rebuilding as the Amish like them being short coupled for ease of turning But I would have to cut the larger units down to 6-7 blade models.

Looks just like the old 16' kewannee disk I used to have.It had 'double' tapered roller bearings that were greasable.I got them from Shoupe.

Yours sounds like it was the 100 series and they do have those bearings, I had one of those. frame was more rounded.

It actually has old cast iron grease bearings that are the size of the spindles that go between the blades. Here"s a photo of the bearings.

If you need an axle made you might try ER Tillage ((855) 378-
4552 formerly Erb & Roberts). They used to do axles to order,
not sure if they still offer that service.

Thanks to you all for your help in identifying my disk. I think now it must be an older Kewanee. It looks like Shoup does have the axles for it (aprox 64"), but the bearings are older than the ones they have at Shoup. I'll just have to keep using a lot of grease and maybe eventually I can find a few scrap Kewanees and salvage parts from them now that I know the proper make. Here's another photo of my bearings if anyone knows where I might find them reasonably priced, otherwise like I said I'll just have to try to find some salvage disks to steal parts from.

Thanks again for your help.....

Those type of bearings I have never heard of one wearing out but we don't have sand here that could wear them out. They are designed loose so they keep working the dirt out so it does not grind out the bearings. Once in a great while one will break but it is not common. Planning this winters work and the disks I have to do all have the wood boxings in them that I will have to have made. But then I think some of those bpxings are noe in the 70 year old range. You have the white iron type.
