I have a 20hp Craftsman Garden Tractor model #917.272243. I also have a Danco loader in just picked-up yesterday. I main concern is the 3/4 spindle. I saw where a guy slipped a 1" spindle over his 3/4 spindle and added upgraded rims and tires. So, is the weak point the 3/4 metal spindle arm or the rims?

Lucky...

Sears used 3/4" axles on everything back in the day even their loader tractors. That being said, I think since the 80's the quality has gone down hill a little. But you can't lift (or shouldn't lift) more than like 400lbs anyway so it may be ok on your machine.
