    How to install JD wheel spinner

    Very simple post, after buying and trying to install the wheel spinner, I was left a little pissed off and irritated about the design and fit. I then looked here to find many posts about the same issue, and was still unable to get it installed to my satisfaction.

    So with a belt sander and some time, this is what I came up with. Thought I would share for anyone else looking to install in the future.

    Top piece sanded to mate with the wheel. small side fits over the wheel spoke. (note, had to add a small piece of the rubber spacer to adjust the angle back up as I took off a little too much material, so add about 1/16" back to the right side)

    Bottom section needed to be sanded down both in height and width to fit into the underside of the wheel.

    One small hole has to be drilled in the wheel.

    Longer screw is need to fit in the side trough the wheel. (these were a little too long and did have to be shortened.)

    Hopefully this will help others in the future, or maybe even others will want to re install their units for a better fit.

    Happy ing

    Nice job! I actually prefer mine a little tilted towards the inside. It keeps it a bit out of the way when I am using the steering wheel normally.

    That is the same I have , I don't remember it not fitting right...but it was 6 years ago...and I can't remember last weekend...

    I have always meant to get a smooth one, the rough ones feel odd.

    I cut a small section off the rubber strap they include to help offset the spinner. Since the profile of the wheel isnít round, that rubber piece sits in it nicely and allows the spinners to be installed perfectly perpendicular to the wheel.

    Is that supposed to be a direct fit on this tractor? If so it looks like %^&#@*

    Definitely looks add on rather than something that goes on this tractor. Sorry if I hurt feelings. Just being honest.

    All steering wheel spinner knobs are universal fit... there are none that are a direct fit on any particular tractor.

    I did mine exactly like this ^^^^^^
    No need whatsoever for sanding, let alone drilling a hole in the steering wheel.
