Most of the time you get self tapping screws with them or if you want you could get bolts nuts and washers (,lock) make sure the shafts and height are right.

Instructions for removing Mandrel from Husqvarna Model YTH24


There should be 3 (or 4 dependent on model) mounting bolts holding the mandrel assembly onto the deck. These are self taping bolts and if the mandrel is a couple years old, these bolts normally break when you remove them. The new assembly should come with new mounting bolts.

How to remove shaft assembly from mandrel housing of a husqvarna yth2348


It's much easier to do on the tractor.
1. Leave deck installed.
2. Jack tractor up and lower deck.
3. Run a heavy wire through the mandrel pulley's tie down hole.
4. Raise deck and tie wire around the deck.
5. Lower deck and remove top nut.
6. Raise deck and remove shaft.
You can modify this procedure to loose the nut if you don't have a jack and remove it once the deck is off. Retorque nut to 35 ft. lbs during install.

I'm replacing the mandrel housing on the deck. the new housing has no threads in it. Can i tap threads and use regular bolts to mount housing to deck.


The old bolts in the old spindle should be self-tapping. Put a little oil on them and screw them into the spindle. Otherwise, yes, you can tap them and use any good quality grade 5 bolt.
Good luck!

If your blade will secure on the star, just jam the blade with a block of wood and proceed. If you have ruined your star, remove the three bolts that secure the mandrel housing, allowing the pulley to drop down to the deck (this requires some room beneath the deck, so get the whole thing off the ground first) and secure the pulley with heavy wire to the deck. There are a couple holes in the pulley and those bolt holes in the deck. Twist tight. The nut is threaded normally (counter clockwise to remove). A socket with a long handle does the trick after you use a few drops of break free oil.

I am replacing the mandrell housing the replacement housing does not have threads in the mounting holes. Are they self tapping or do I need to replace with bolts?


You didn't indicate any model or brand. If the housing goes in from the bottom and the bolts from the top, then it's nice for them to be threaded so you don't have to get under the machine, and nothing more to catch grass on. If the mandrel housing sits on top of the machine, I'd use carriage bolts from the bottom with nuts on top.

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

Mandrel on right side has broken 3 times have only done 7.3 hours


It sounds like your blade is hitting the ground when you are mowing.If you have high spots in your yard the blade will cut into the ground and the mounts on the mandrel will break. Make sure the mower rake adjustment is set correctly,the mower blade should be level or a maximum of 1/4 inch lower in the front.This adjustment is done with the adjuster bolt that runs from the front of the mower to the frame under the muffler, it may have one or two rods connecting the mower at this point. Also make sure the wheels are set down far enough so they can prevent the deck from scalping,they have five different mount holes,if they are up in the highest they will not do anything.Unfortunately these mower mandrels will not take a lot of punishment and they can break when the blades contact anything like dirt or tree roots. Your ultimate action may be just to mow the grass a little higher to keep from scalping. Hope this helps.
