All 4 of my Ariens machines have the small 4.10/3.50-6 size tires with 3 hole drive flanges on them. Does anyone know what structural changes that Ariens made when they started equipping some of their machines with the larger tires? Was it as simple as the 4 bolt drive flanges, larger tires and wheels or are the tractors different in some way?

Still hoping someone can answer this for me. I'm contemplating a custom project and need a place to start.

The Tractors with the Larger Tires used Ball Bearings and a Different axle instead of the Sleeve bearing setup. Internal workings seem to be the same.

Personally I don't know but I'd start with axel diameter and how the hubs are attached to the axel. Once you have that info, it's a starting point to research your question.

I went out and checked , My Personal Machine, an Early 924 32" Machine with the Old Style Bucket has Ball Bearings. I also have a 92040 Chassis with Sleeve Bearings.

Thanks for the hints and the model numbers. Since I don't have any examples here to get model numbers off of, I could not compare IPLs.

My 924040 came equipped with a solid axle (no differential) and it had bushings. I scooped up a 924050 for parts and installed the differential from the 924050 on the 924040. I also went with new axle bearings and bearing carriers at the same time.

Db130 Did you Change to the Ball Bearings, or stick with the Bushings?
