Replace spindle shaft on 42 insch cutting deck


take the deck off. the shaft you want to replace take the nut off the pulley on top and hit it with a hammer it should fall out the bottom. take blade off and there go. be sure bearings are good put new shaft in and put pulley and washer and nut and blade . take a picture of how it comes apart so you don't forget when you go to put it back together.

Model # 917.289072 19.5 42" When i engage blades it is very noisy like metal on metal It seems to cut ok but I don't want to mess it up more I changed blades and changed oil


Did you check the spindle assembly. I had one that cracked on my mower and had to replace it.It could be broken at one of the corners and this makes the blade spin off balance or not turn at all.Or a pulley could be worn or bent and the belt makes it rotate against the other metal parts.This happened because I hit some stones. They can damage other parts of the mower deck as well as ruin the cutting blades.You can do an online chat with SEARS parts too and their tech may have more info which may hepl diagnose the problem. Good luck,

I have a 15 year old Moen bathfaucet 4650-P that I want to replace. I can't figure out how to remove this old faucet. It has three holes with the outer holes on 4 inch spacing. The two handles and the...


There is definitly a nut or nuts holding the faucet to the sink. It could be around the center shaft that goes through the sink, but most likely 2 small nuts that screw onto the 2 outer stubs. These are your hot and cold wated supplies. crawl underneath the cabinets and check. It might be difficult to get them off, but they do make a pipe wrench tool that has a rotating head that makes this easier

My 6 hp yard machine tiller has a problem when you pull the rope. It has a hard **** or pull back when you pull on the rope. Is the engine out of timing. Thanks JD James It is approx. 4 years old...


sounds like the timing is off.
need to remove the pull cord cover and take the nut off on the shaft and take the cover off and see if the key on the shaft is broke and put a new one on.
when you hit something solid the key will shear.

Shaft problems


un hook l/h and r/h lift pins from both lift arms , remove front draft arm from front of deck ( it attaches under the muffler on the chassis )
discoonect the blade engage cable from arm if it uses this type or pop the deck belt off the electric pto if the tractor uses this type

you could just spin each spindle without the blade on ( but leave the top pulleys on ) if spindles bent you should see a wobble , if hard seeing it refit both blades and re-spin each spindle and check for quite a noticable variation in blade tracking when each blade is turned through a rev or two

remove deck , remove both mandrell pulleys from the top of thier shafts
remove both blades and use block of wood and knock the blade spindles out of their mandrells from the pulley side


here is website for parts

609 yard machine tractor idler pulley spring broke


Here's a diagram, not a great copy, but it may help:
bdb5270.jpg

The spring hooks to the idler arm on the opposite end from where the pulley is mounted. The other end of the spring looks like it hooks to a raised tab on the deck, straight behind the left mower spindle. Hope this helps you, please rate my solution if so, thanks!

Removing pulleys from 42 inch Craftsman mower deck


Put the blade back on the star on the shaft and tighten it down. Now you have some backup for the pulley nut. You may have to wedge a 2x4 between the blade and deck. THe EASIEST way is get an impact and zip it off. :-)

Trouble removing the faucet from a Delta Waterfall 174


I wouldn't worry about messing up the threads as it is an old unit that you wish to discard. Do what is necessary to hold the threads still with the vise-grips and loosen the nut until you reach the damaged threads. Then pull the faucet up from the top until the nut hits the bottom of the sink and cut the threaded nipple from the faucet with a hack-saw blade. Lay down cardboard to protect the finish of the sink and surrounding counter top.

I have had to do this many times and it usually saves you the headache of bloody knuckles.
