Cool F-12 Front Wheel and Axle

Good Morning All

So the story goes. I was given a F-12 by my uncle who had made an attempt to restor it twenty or so years ago. It is not a bad tractor it has been sand blasted and put back in primer. The engine is stuck, not bad I think but I am intending on doing a rebuild anyway. The issue Is that it has a front wheel on it that I have never seen befor on a F-12. I am sure it is factory but I am more of a JD guy so I will ask the experts. This is a single front split wheel type that weighs every bit of 100 lbs and has four long bolts that hold it togeather. The wheel bolts around the axle and wheel bearings. But it is unlike any other single front wheel F-12 I Have seen befor. The axle looks like it has been run without bearings for some distance so it is not useable and I cant get any measurements off of it to turn another one. If I can find a set of bearings I can pull the I.D. and make a new one. It looks to have the standard single front steel wheel mounting system and I do not know if I can use the standard single front wheel axle of bearings. If any one has info on this or knows were I can get an axle and set of wheel bearings I would be very greatful.

Thanks
Chris

That is a very common F-12 front wheel. You should be able to find parts at any number of places including ones that advertise on this website.
