Default looking for jd 15A rotary chopper part

i'm stuck on finding a 40 yr old part that John deere doesn't make anymore. idid a search with the part number and came up empty.
part is C503E Hub can anyone help? it is a cap that slides over the axle hub shaft that you remove when replacing the tire. the cap is cast an i removed it in chunks after ordering the part. then i was told they no longer have it.
wheel bolts to the hub and needed part slides over the axle then bolts to the outside body/frame to support the wheel.
the auger has been removed because i just cut weeds with it now.

Use the rear axle hub from a front wheel drive car, don’t buy the expensive JD parts

the hub is ok. when the whole assembly is bolted to the large flat part with the wheel on the hub the axle is flush with the outside. the part i need is like a cap. it slides in from the outside over the axle and holds it. no bearings it is a tight fit and heavy cast. you pull it off to drop the wheel with hub to change.
it may be easier to build than i think. i have no idea why it is called a HUB by jd.
thanks.

It doesn't sound like it would be rocket science to build. some 1/2" or 3/4" plate and some pipe bored or sleeved to fit the axle.
