Question about Garden

1 Answer

Wheel horse The spindles are on a 36" deck, model 57361. No grease fittings on spindle housing; sealed bearing assembly. I need to replace the bearing shaft assembly, Toro part number 103119. It looks like I just remove the belt pulley, re-insert the pully bolt part way then smack the bolt to drive the pully / spindle shaft from the spindle housing. Wish I could post a photo and diagram on FixYa. Effectivly, the bearings are fixed to the shaft. I have access to a new shaft assembly. So... am I correct in saying the shaft drives out of the housing from the top and drops to the floor below the deck? Any pointers on re-installing the new spindle shaft? Thanks, tombones49@gmail.com

    I left fixya four years ago. I looked in my files for the XT250 service manual. No luck doing that. I looked online with little success, (unless I paid $30 and bought a manual). At this point I can't really help you other than to say to set the idle (pilot) screw to idle speed desired, then turn the air screw in /out to achieve the highest rpm at the initial pilot screw setting. Re-adjust idle speed to desired rpm and repeat the air screw adjustment. You must have looked long and hard to find me. Best wishes...

SOURCE: How do I remove the spindle from the deck of a Craftsman mower.

Put your blade back on so you will have some backup on the nut. Wedge a piece of 2x4 between the blade and deck to hold the shaft while you take off the nut. You should do that before unbolting the spindle. If you are just replacing bearings, you don't have to unbolt the spindle at all. Just remove the pulley on top and the shaft with blade attached will slide out the bottom. The botton bearing, however, will be on the shaft and is difficult to get off. I use a bearing splitter to get it down far enough to drive off the shaft.

Is that how your manual recommends changing the belt?

On most riding mowers, the deck must be lowered in order to replace the belt

SOURCE: need to remove pulley from spindle to replace

If you do not the facilities to use an impact wrench, you will need to find to hold the pulley and you a breaker bar with a socket on it to get the pulley nut loose. I would use either"PB Blaster or Deep Creep" penetrating oil and spray it on the nut before you try to take it apart.
Or you may find a professional shop, take the deck to them and may may take the pulley off for a small fee.

You say you checked everything. I would remove the deck and belt and physically make sure both blades spin freely. Then I'd install the belt and check again, it sounds as though each component works fine alone but when in conjunction with other parts something is binding. Good luck

How do I fix a loose blade.


By loose blade I assume you mean that it can be moved up and down at the tip of the blade. It is most unlikely that the central nut has come loose, but check anyway. If this nut is tight and the shaft is loose in the bearing this means the bearing has worn out. Remove the deck from the machine. Photograph the run of the belt as this has to be removed. Also the direction of the grease nipple. Remove pulley from loose spindle. Turn deck on its edge or mount on two saw horses or similar so you can get to top and bottom of spindle bolts. Remove cutting blade. Remove spindle housing and clean area so no rubbish gets caught when reassembling. Otherwise spindle may be set different and mower will leave a line of differing cut. Take spindle to vise and remove any retaining nuts or circlips from shaft and clean as clean as new. Apply light oil or CRC etc to help move bearing along shaft. Open vise wider that outside of bearing, usually 44 to 50mm [1 3/4" to 2"] and refit nut on thread. Check nut is always spaced free of top bearing. With cushion of hardwood or nylon tap the shaft to move it down with lower bearing coming out of spindle housing. To remove top bearing from housing, turn housing up other way and use a wooden shaft such as a broom handle to tap bearing free of housing. Clean out grease and replace when reassembling. Do not reuse other bearing. They are cheap and likely to fail shortly anyway. These bearings usually have no seals on inside.

Replacing bearinon spindle housing


Remove deck and place on two boxes or saw horses so that you can access both top and bottom of bolts holding spindle housing. Remove drive pulley from spindle. Remove cutting blade. Remove four bolts holding spindle housing to deck frame, noting which way grease nipple is pointing. Take spindle housing off and scrub deck frame clean of rust etc and also clean housing with wire brush. To remove bearings, look for retainers such as nuts or circlips. Remove these and ensure that the shaft is clean so bearing can be slid off. Apply CRC or light oil to assist bearing removal. Use a vise and set jaws wide enough that the bearing outside can fit between. This is usually 45 to 50mm. [1 3/4" to 2"] Place a hard wood block [or something that will not bruise the thread such as solid nylon] and screw nut well on to thread but make sure there is space for movement between nut and bearing. Firmly tap spindle end. Shaft should go down into top bearing and bottom bearing should start to emerge between vice jaws. Make sure that there is always space between nut and bearing before knocking end of shaft again. To knock top bearing out, place it on bottom over vise jaws and take a length of wood such as a section of broom handle and knock it out. Normally there should be no seals on the inside of these spindle bearings as they are greased from a grease gun thru the grease nipple.

How do I replace the bearings on the mower deck spindle housing on my toro mx 5060


To replace spindle bearings: Remove deck and either rest on two saw horses or similar mounts, or stand on its side and fix to make safe and secure. Photograph the belt layout and also the grease nipple so you can easily refit.The object is to access the top and bottom of the spindle. Remove cutting blade. Remove pulley on top side. I reccomend that you also remove the spindle housing from the deck. You can remove bearings while still fitted but it is not so easy. Clean the shaft and remove any circlips or retaining nuts from spindle. Take the unit and clean shaft as clean as new. Use emery paper if necessary. Use light oil or CRC to lube the shaft to slide bearings off. Do not hold shaft in vise as this will cause deformation of the shaft surface and jam the bearing. Place lower side of housing on vise which should be open slightly more than bearing outer diameter. Take hardwood or industrial nylon [to protect the thread from bruising,] after refitting nut on shaft thread, and ensuring there is space between nut and bearing, tap down firmly with hammer. The shaft will move more easily after the initial freeing up. When it moves easily remove nut and tap down with wood between hammer and thread end. To remove the top bearing use a wooden shaft, a broom handle is ideal. The replacement bearings should have no seals on the inside. Remove if necessary. Make sure to scrub clean both housing end and deck where the housing fits. Any rubbish there will cause lines in the mowing as it can tilt the blades. The thickness of paper can mean 3mm at the end of the blades!

Cub cadet riding mower Mower Blade and shaft wiggle


I am not familiar with Cub Cadet but would suggest that if spindle is loose [wiggles] then one or more bearings need replacing. Remove the whole deck from the machine and turn over. Check the blade [s] are firm. If not undo the nut holding the blade on and remove the spindle and its housing from the deck frame. Remove the driving pulley also. Usually these types of drives have a spindle with a special fitting on the lower end for the blades to fit onto. Some are forged on the end of the spindle and the bearings come off the other end. Others will be removeable and so the bearings will come off each end. What ever, clean up with fuel and replace both bearings. You may have to remove the seals on the inside to let grease in. Make sure the top bearing has plenty of grease as it may miss out if all the grease goes down. Some machines it is better to leave the seals on top bearing. I have found that it does not pay to use the hose connection to clean the deck as the water destroys the bearings and only half cleans the deck. Best to put planks onto trailer or ute deck and run mower up so you can get underneath with big screw driver every now and then. Take blades off and sharpen them then also.

How to replace rear wheel hub


Sodium based grease is not compatible with lithium based grease. Do not lubricate the wheel bearings without first thoroughly cleaning all old grease from the bearing. Use of incompatible bearing lubricants could result in premature lubricant breakdown.
  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  2. Remove the wheels.
  3. Remove the brake drum or brake disc.
  4. Remove the hub grease cap.
  5. Remove the cotter pin retainer, adjusting nut and flatwasher from the rear wheel spindle. Discard the cotter pin.
  6. Remove the outer bearing and cone assembly.
  7. Remove the rear hub from rear wheel spindle.
  8. Using Seal Remover (TOOL-1175-AC) or equivalent, remove and discard the oil seal.
  9. Remove the inner bearing cone and roller assembly.
  10. Clean the inner and outer bearing cups with solvent. Inspect the bearing cups for scratches, pits, excessive wear and other damage. If the bearing cups are worn or damaged, remove them using a Bearing Cup Puller (T77F-1102A) or equivalent.
To install:
  1. Throughly clean old grease from the surrounding surfaces. If a new hub assembly is being installed, remove the protective coating using degreaser.
  2. If the inner or outer bearing cups were removed, install replacement cups using Bearing Cup Replacer (T73-1202-A) or equivalent. Seat the cups properly in the hub.
If a bearing packer is not available, work as much grease as possible between the rollers and cages. Grease the cone surfaces.
  1. Using a bearing packer, pack the bearing cone and roller assemblies with a premium bearing grease.
  2. Place inner bearing cone and roller assembly in the inner cup. A light film of grease should be included between the lips of the new grease retainer.
  3. Install the retainer with Hub Seal Replacer (T83T-1175-B) or equivalent. Be sure the retainer is properly seated.
Keep the hub centered on the spindle to prevent damage to the retainer and spindle threads.
  1. Install the hub assembly on the spindle.
  2. Install the outer bearing cone and roller assembly on the spindle.
  3. Install the flat washer and nut. Tighten the nut to 18-23 ft. lbs. (24-31 Nm) while rotating the hub to set the end-play. Back off the nut and retighten to 18 inch lbs. (2 Nm).
  4. Install the new cotter pin.
  5. Install hub grease cap.
  6. Install brake drum or disc.
  7. Install the wheels.
  8. Lower the vehicle.
