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

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

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

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.
