Siezed Wheel bearing on 1971 mustang?

The wheel bearing went out while i was in town and i had to drive it about 1-2 miles so i could park it in a safe spot so i could find a trailer and bring it home. Once i got it home i pulled the wheel and drum off and the wheel bearing was seized to the spindle so i took my grinder and grind each side of the wheel bearing and took a chisel and pop it off, so it wasn't welded to it but when i was looking at the spindle i could see that it grind some on the spindle and if i remember it wasn't smooth either, the drum isn't usable any more but is the spindle still good?

Start calling wrecking yards for a replacement spindle. Reusing the damaged one will quickly eat up any bearing you put on it. Bummer but it's best to replace it.

I recommend replacing the spindle. Mismatched surfaces may cause another bearing failure, and the spindle hardness may have been affected by heat from the bad bearing possibly.

If the spindle is marked up replace it.
