    If it the bolt I think it is. it is jsut a 1/2" bolt 6" long NC. That is what the parts manual says, #16

    on my 750 it was jsut a standard 1/2" bolt. jsut went over to the bolt bin and got a new one and replaced it, when mine was damaged in shipping, (long story not worth explaining).

      part 60537 is the drum shaft. fig #2 on the drawing.

      the knurled nut that holds the drum on, screws onto this shaft. it's also the shaft that the drum bearing rides on.

        they make what is called a thread restoring file as well, most quality auto parts stores or hard ware store, should carry them, you would need to know the threads per inch to get the correct file, (usaly there square and have 8 sets of different pitches per file unit (each end is different), but still you would need to know the thread per inch, to pick up the right one, and you may be able to dress the unit you have and not need to replace, it,

          I got tired of screwing with the nut and ran a die down the pinion to clean it up then installed a normal nut. Now I can remove it with a wrench and not have to fight it all the time.
          I welded a spacer on the end that goes towards the bearing. Works great!
