  • Spindle bushing
  • I am replacing the front spindle bushing on my 1947 2n tractor. On the right side the
    bushings slip in with no resistance. Top and bottom. Does anyone know of an oversize bushing that I could modify to press into the spindle housing? Seems a shame to have to replace the housing when the rest of it is good.
    Thanks in advance and God Bless

  • The hole in the spindle housing is much to large causing the bushing to just fall in. No press fit at all. I suppose I will have to buy another housing. Thanks for the offer to come over and get a spindle off one of your machines, but kinda long drive from Georgia. The other side spindle bushings were a proper very tight press fit. Was just hoping someone would know of a good fix.

  • I have no clue on how to repair that, other than having a machine shop make you a bushing ($$). You can probably pick up a used spindle from a 9N or 2N in your area, or call Derek Barkley at Just 8N's and see if he has a used one in good condition. The last time that I visited Just 8N's in Shelby, NC, they had a mini-warehouse in the basement of good used parts they had salvaged from restoration work. Derek will treat you right.

  • Come on over and pull a spindle off of one of my machines.
    Ads can be fond in Craigslist.
