You have to remove the nut on top of the pulley. With the pulley off, the shaft will slide out the bottom with the blade. Don't forget when you put the pulley back on, the washer/spacer goes BETWEEN the pully and housing, NOT on top of the pulley. Dwain

SOURCE: i am having problems stripping the mandrel shafts

Are you saying the pulley on top of the blade spindle is stripping out? If it has done it once and you did not replace the pulley and shaft, it will happen again. The shaft and the pulley are splined and if they gets loose, it will strip the splines from both. In other words, you have to replace the pulley and the shaft for it to work...and tighten them securely. If that doesn't answer your question, let me know. Dwain

SOURCE: mandrel ruins pulley

there are only a couple of things that could be causing this: either the spacer [looks like a thick washer] is put on above the pulley [it goes UNDER the pulley], or the nut holding the pulley on is not being tightened enough

SOURCE: How can I un-bolt the Mandrel Pulley from the shaft?

If you have the deck removed from under the tractor you can try putting the blade back on tight if you have removed it and then use the blade to keep the mandrel shaft from turning. It takes quite a bit of torque to break the nut loose on the pulley so a socket and ratchet or breaker bar is the best thing to use. Other than that there is no "special" tool required

SOURCE: how do i remove pully wheel to remove mandrel from

Think you're going at it from the wrong end, should be four bolts holding the whole assembly. Take off the blade and pull the rest up through the whole, leave the pulley on it. Don't buy new bearings, better off and cheaper to get a used one that works.

I replaed the blade drive mandrel and reattacheed the blade and the blade does not freelyturn t is so bound up tht I cannot turnit manually


okay check see if brakes is on the mower, not the tractor but the blades of the mower deck if not then take belt off of the new mandrel side and try turning blade by hand. should turn freely if not mandrel is bad but unlikely. sounds like you changed wrong side mandrel I presume you have 2 blades and mandrels. or when you installed it back on. the belt may be bound up between a guide and pulley just kind of look things over before a tear apart. and then do your tear apart one step at a time then check blade to see if it turns does not seem serious you may have put belt on wrong, I have done it my self. hope this helps major note do not do this with engine running cut you hand off in a flash.

Pulley blade assembly /how to get it appart to change barrings


You will need to remove the pulley from the deck and using a mallet carefully knock the shaft out. There is another way that does not involve disassembly of the mandrel/spindle, you can purchase another mandrel/spindle for replacement. For me, I always break the mandrel/spindle before the bearings go out anyway.

I hope that this gets you going soon.

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

One blade cuts and one doesn't. Is this a pulley or a belt problem?drive belt sound hasn't changed. can belts be adjusted or only replaced? what tools are needed?


Set the thing up on some blocks and try to remove the blade which does not turn. Since your belt is working, the pulley must be spinning or there would briefly be an awful racket. If the pulley is spinning but the blade is not then there is something wrong with the mandrel/spindle, or the blade has come loose and has somehow not cut off anyone's foot. Sometimes the pulley and top of the mandrel become rounded out but again there would be some metal on metal noise. Often there is a star shaped protrusion on the bottom of the mandrel which locks into the blade and by virtue of hitting some immovable object, that unstoppable keeper has been destroyed.

Mandrel chews pulley


Are you sure the spindle is not bent and also are you balancing the blades when sharpening. Other then that make sure bolts are tight on the mandrel. With the deck off and standing up spin the blades and watch center of balde to see if something is bent. Also watch pulley on the other side to see if its bent.
