I pulled the little 3 bolt cap off the center of the wheel.. SURPRISE
The nuts on both spindles are welded to the spindle. looks like the threads on the spindles were worn or stripped so some idiot welded the nuts to the spindles.

NOW WHAT?????

It's easy to give someone else advice in a situation like this, if the seals are not leaking and the bearings are tight, just get as much lube (regular wheel bearing grease) into the bearing and forget about it.

Wide front.. This guy I know has a machine shop.He said to grind the weld & nuts off. says he can build the spindle up where the threads are worn then he will rethread them to original size.

what do ya'll think? This is on the Cockshutt 560

If it were mine, that's what I would do. Particularly because I already have all the equipment and machines to fix it right.

If I was going to have to pay a shop some serious money to do the repairs, then I'd explore other options like spindles from a salvage yard or something.

I'd probably just run it for now if there is no other problem.Would it be possible to rethread the spindles with a slightly smaller thread maybe something metric?

I did the same type of repair to an extra spindle for a Massey 285. Threads were stripped so I welded them up and used a cnc machining center to mill it back down and then threadmill the proper threads back on. Never did put it to use, and the tractor is sold now.

Not at all hard to believe. Wheel probably fell off in the field, had to get the crops in, and it was a Sunday of course, so out came the old buzz box and a stick of 6011.

Alternative scenario, wheel falls off on a weekday with no crops needing to be brought in before the weather hit. Went to the dealer and priced a new spindle. Soiled trousers when told the price. Pay the feed bill or fix the tractor. Cows can't go hungry and they're the ones actually providing income, so out came the buzz box and a stick of 6011.

i
I will be taking the spindles to the guy on Thursday & will let him decide which he wants to pursue either build them up & rethread to the original or rethread with a smaller size.

Yup this is the route I'm hoping he will take.
