    In the photos in post #8, that grease looks fresh, new.

    Do you suppose the previous owner had it apart just before he sold it?

    thanks for the support guys , got my bearings today and then found out my axle is broken at the outer bearing, and it broke there for the last owner as well .so Im looking for an axle and trying to figure out why the axles are breaking.
    must be loose at the spot where the diagonal arm from the track frame attaches, although the caps are tight it must be where the problem is I think. was to dirty to get the camera out but I will take pictures tomorrow.

    If the diagonal brace bearing is Ok , i think you should compare the measurements of the standard track frame on the other side and the one that has been fitted . Make sure the length of the diagonal braces are the same , the pad where the spring sits too the axle bearing cap centers etc , also the condition of the bracing on the blades 'C' frame as if that is crook the forces put on the blade whilst pushing can skew the track frame and put great strain on the axle .
