Old Ariens axle / wheel

My brother is using our restored 1970 Ariens. Last winter the right wheel pin came out and he lost the key that locks the wheel to the axle.

I thought it was a standard Woodruff key. But tried several 3/16 and even 1/4Ē keys and they were too tall. That made me think it might just be some key stock. The model # tag is long gone so I canít find out what itís supposed to be.

Ariens sells some, but I think they are standard parts?

You could take the other wheel off, NOT lose the key ...to find out what the dimensions are.

If you know the engine and bucket width (assuming the originals), chances are the key itself is the same one used on the whole 1970 line for I'm betting it's a 10,000 series. You'd also know what model you actually own.

Assuming it's a 10,000 series...

Looking at the series' parts manual and 1970's my hunch is it's Ariens part 66011 or 0601100. It appears there's 3 keys on the axle shaft and this shows two are required. Ariens still carries the part too, might be able to find it cheaper though.

That looks like a WOODRUFF key..... 1/2 moon shape at the bottom?? hard to tell from pix. Available at hardware store.... NOT big box stores.

Most big box stores also have Woodruff keys.

But the ones we got were too tall. Perhaps wrong pattern.

do you have a bench grinder to trim down a standard woodruff key?

The dimensions of a 06601100 is per the parts manual for my 922008...

Key 3/16 x 3/16 x 1 1/4

What intrigues me is the fact you have a keyed/pinned wheel with an inflatable tire and a 1970 - the wheel looks like it's a split hub too but not 6 total nuts and bolts per wheel like my 922008. To me that means mid to late 70's or later maybe, or a different than stock axle. I might be wrong...but something ain't adding up.

Maybe we need separate pics of the tractor and attachment, along with the engine plate data to know for certain.

I checked my parts manuals for my 910962 and 922008, and unless you go to 22,000 series 1974 model year, or 10,000 series 1974 or mid 60's model years...66011/06601100 is the key used on all. But every one of those has wheels with hubs, and it's the hubs that are keyed.

I'm stumped.

That all seems normal, it is indeed a stepped woodruff key. They are pricey too. The problem you will encounter even if you buy a new key is that the keyway will be worn and when you assemble there will be lots of play. I always just machine a longer keyway and use standard key stock. I'm located at the NH border near Hudson. If you disassemble axle and make the trip down I'd machine it for you, no charge. If your interested just pm me and we can make arrangements.
