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.

SOURCE: remove pulley on mower deck spindle

These are generally held on with just one large nut, I recommend you use a impact wrench otherwise it mau prove difficult ( you wont be able to hold the spindle tight enough) and certainly you will need a impact wrench to reassemble the spindle

SOURCE: deck is leveled, blades are fine,spindle not bent it still cuts

there was a problem with the lighter gauge decks [thinner steel], and the deck would actually bend inward on the left side. this would tilt the mandrel inward making the blade cut at a slight angle to the right blade - there is tool to straighten the deck [the left mandrel housing usually breaks, though] - some shops have this tool, others have never heard of such a thing - most sears l&g field techs have this tool in their trucks - i have the tool in my shop, but i have had luck with turning the deck over and whapping it a couple of times on the inside edge of the left mandrel until the blades line up

Main spindle needs replacement how to


Typical Kubota mower spindles are mounted with 4 bolts. Some have 4 more on a larger support plate. First the belt pulley must be removed, possibly with the help of a jaw-type puller. Then remove the 4 bolts around the perimeter of the spindle. Using a soft mallet or wood block, drive the spindle assembly down through the deck, making sure there is room underneath for it to fall. Kubota sells replacements as complete assemblies which saves a lot of time vs. rebuilding the spindle.

How to replace the spindle on a 48 inch mower deck


OK, Now I see your question under a different post. You are going to have to pull the deck out from under the spindle housing and spindle and replace them. They usually come as an assembly. after removing teh deck you should see the spindle housing retaining bolts to remove. Make sure you pull the blade off that spindle before you try removing it.

Smoke coming out when i engage the blades


Most likely the mower belt is rubbing and causing this. But don't try to find it with the mower running! With the engine off, lower the deck and inspect the mower belt for worn or burnt spots. The problem isn't the belt, though. Look under the mower deck - is a branch or other object stuck in there? Get it out, and replace the belt if it's badly burnt.

If it's not a stuck object, than you probably have a frozen spindle (the bearings that hold the mower blades) or idler pulley. Remove the belt and spin each of these by hand to find the problem. The pulleys are not expensive, but the spindles are. I hope it's just a branch. Good luck! Please rate if helpful, thanks!

How to remove blade pulley on a kubota RCK40LT mower deck


To remove the two smaller single blade pulleys you will need at least a 5 inch bearing puller (the kind with three legs. There are two sets of bearings in both assemblies, one on the top of the spindle shaft and the second at the top. If you plan on removing the double pulley in the center that takes the power from the engine and transfers to the blades you will need at least a 6 inch bearing pulley. My recommendation is replace all the bearings, cheap insurance in my opinion. Keep notes of what, where, how each item is removed so it goes back in the right place.
