Here's a few shots of things I've been working on for my next tractor. And before this goes somewhere I don't want it to, I am not doing this because it "needs" to be done. I'm not even doing it because someone else "needs" it done. I'm just doing it because I can, and, I want to.

Trailer hubs, golf cart tires and wheels I created the axle"extensions" by centering 1" bolts and then machined them off for the correct squeeze on the taper bearings in the hubs, removed the factory stop for the sealed bearings and machined the bearing stop/seal surface then welded them on. Yes, I drilled the spot welds and moved the centers back to mimic "super" rear wheels. This is going to be a Quiet Line SGT.

OK, let me get this straight, you're building a custom front axle/steering and are then going to build a Cadet around it? Well that's a different approach! What about the tires, you staying with that tread pattern or switching to something more like a lawn mower, or something resembling tractor style tread patterns? What you have done thus far looks pretty good.

Kind of. The axle and wheels were accessible, and I could fiddle with them when ever time allowed. The front tires will be fine as this is intended to be a BIG mower with power steering. My wife and I are deep in the throws of the "mid-life downsizing thing" and our new home is nearing completion, so "free" time has been and will continue to be elusive. I have 2 quiet line frames as well as a nicely scored 2072 stripped chassis that still had the power steering column and valve/cylinder in tact as well as the dual brake pedals. But planning for the up coming move, my welders are disconnected and the new garage may not be "set up" till late winter. (we're hoping for a good snowmobile season this year).

Looks like the outer bearing is supported on the extension that you machined and that is only supported by a 1/2" bolt. Let me know how that works.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
