Trying to figure out what I have so I can possibly get bearings replaced. I've took most apart to restore it and I will pull with atv if possible to get fixed.

What kind of bearings did you find in there when you took it apart? I'd guess either wood or cast iron.

There was nothing in the housings. Not a single piece of metal or wood left. I can get more pictures as I have took one side apart to try and find out what I need.

If your wanting to use it and do not care if it is period correct you can easily install new bearings. Take your axles and get pillow block bearings that will fit the axles. Then you can usually get the housings to bolt up to the old standards. To hold the spacing you will need to cut the old spools. Example: If the bearings are two inch wide you will need to cut two inches out of the spools. Then just use each half on each side of the bearing to space the disk to where they should be.

I have done a fair number of them this way.

How many acres are you planning to work up with that and for how many years. It likely had a piece of hardwood in there for a bearing and it has since rotted and disintegrated. If you only plan to do a small food plot with it I'd probably just put it back together and use it.

It appears to me that nothing is missing or wrong unless you have a great deal of play or looseness. So like the one man said unless your going to farm a lot put it back grease it well and use it. Many of the old disk prior to sealed bearings are made this way and nothing else is in there. I used to grease 3 times per day and sometimes they still make a little noise.

That will have to have some weight, or an operator riding it to do much good as a disk.

There is quite a bit of play like something is missing. One of the sleeves is broke. i will try and get some more pictures in a little while to show the play. Im thinking it was a international harvester mule drawn disc. the front steel wheels were missing. I may and try to call the place that sells wood bearings.

My dad made new wooden bushings for the disc I have. It was also down to metal against metal.

That was a horse drawn disk and doughtfull you can ever find the make as there were hundreds of companys making them at that time. But some made very few. The picture of the bearing the spool looks like it is wore very tapered where the bearing runs, that is supposed to be straight. Never heard of a horse drawn disk that did not have wood bearings but not saying they are not out there. The housing looks like it is round inside so if it is there has to be something that should show up to keep the wood from turning, some was just like the end of a bolt that fit into a hole in the bearing , (actually called a boxing and some were steel that floated in between the housing and the spool) others were hex shaped to keep them from turning. And you will find that spool is a very hard brittle steel to keep it from wearing. To tell if it should have a wood boxing in thak the housing and the spool and with the least wear lay them together and if you have 3/8" of play they did not have the wood in them. If you have over an inch then they did have the wood. And if you can do or find somebody with tha ability to drill a 2 1/2" hole you can make them yourself. For the amount you could do with it any wood even soft wood will last as long as you need. But orignally they would have if wood been made out of hard maple for the wear properties plus its ability to soak in oil grease And they would have been soaked in oil for 6 months before being sold. A hard wood like oak will not absorb the oil so when you grease the bearing it will just push out and you would be running a drw bearing, I think the soft would will also absorb the oil to keep bearing lubed longer.

Im guessing that was a disc used in vineyards, pulled by a skinny mule.
