    Default Need help with Dad's tractor - Ford 3610

    While mowing with my Dad's Ford 3610 the left from tire turned the wrong way. When I lifted the tire off the ground with the FEL the tire fell off. Is this called the spindle axle assembly? How do I go about repairing it?

    Don, if that snapped in half, maybe simplest thing to do is just bolt a new spindle in; they aren't crazy expensive, don't know shipping time though

    Same thing happened to our 3910. Replace the spindle. I also got new bearings and bushings at the time. Hardest part is removing the steering arm from the broken off piece of spindle.

    Thanks, I got the spindle off the tractor in the field and the hub off in the shop. new spindle.
    ordered and bushing kit. The local Ford/New Holland tractor dealers did not stock the part.

    Drew, your link had better prices, but I had already ordered. I think the 102˚ is clouding my bargain hunting thinking.

    We had that happen to our Jubilee and we had it welded and turned down on a lathe. Done remember what it cost, it was many moons ago. Hope it goes well. Ed

    That's a pretty hefty shaft to break in 2 like that. Wonder what caused it?
    Over-worrying about something is like putting a down payment on trouble.

    A word of caution, there are 2 spindles for the 3610 as listed on this page:

    Steering and front axle parts for Ford 3610 tractors | All States Ag Parts


    And of course I got the wrong one because the site I ordered from only had one listed.

    I just made that same repair to a Ford 3600. Pretty easy, the hardest thing was jacking up the tractor with a loader on the front. Learn how to check/adjust wheel bearing play. It will save you issues down the road.

    Hint..."Made in China"

    The original OEM spindle was probably US/UK made. I have repaired a few of those in the last few years and most aftermarket spindles were made in China or India.
