Farm Wagon Auto Steering-Spindle Parts

It would be data prohibitive to list each individual part with shipping. Therefore, shipping & handling is based on an average purchase of a few parts. If you just need a small item that can ship USPS contact us. We do charge a minimum $12 flat base rate on all items regardless of the size. This is to cover the cost to process, pack, drop ship, and actual shipping charges.
Additional shipping may be required for larger orders. We will let you know if additional shipping will be needed. If you checkout using PayPal we can send you an invoice if needed. Otherwise, we will also need to have credit card information as our system does not store it with the order.
Wagon gear hardware is made for working Amish farms still using horse-drawn implements modernized for standard roller bearing wheel hubs.
The references to a right or left orientation are based on standing at the rear of the wagon and looking forward. Note, that these spindles are made for front operating tie rods. Order in reverse if you are ordering for a rear tie rod wagon assembly.
1-3/4” rear spindles and “L” shape front spindles for use on our tie rod automobile style steering assemblies fit standard 6-bolt AG roller bearing hubs.
We receive ongoing calls looking for spindles and parts for old farm wagons that haven't been built for decades. The parts that we list here are made for the Amish-built Reliable farm wagons. As far as we know we are the only ones offering replacement parts for wagons. Most are ordering and modifying to fit other old brands. It would be cost-prohibitive to custom-make parts. Such things as ordering our spindle tubes and cutting off the old ones to fit these spindles, lengthening or shortening the tie rods might be the only option available to restore an older farm wagon back into service. Consideration also needs to be given to hubs and wheels. The hubs we sell are for 6-bolt agriculture wheels and we have no others available.
