Question about Craftsman 21 hp 42 in. Deck Yard Tractor - CA Model
I ran over some deer netting and it wrapped extremely tight around one of the mower blades and pully assembly. I removed the deck, removed the blade and tried cutting and used a propane torch to melt the netting entwined around the shaft but the shaft still does not turn easily. I am trying to remove the entire puuly assembly from the deck but cannot get the pully detached from the blade assembly. Any suggestion as to how to get this done. I believe if I can disassemble this and get whatever netting is still around the shaft, and then grease the shaft I should be OK.
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. :-)

Your torch torched the plastic races in the bearings. Get a new spindle, they're maybe 30 bucks on eBay. You probably cooked the pulley bearings as well as the spindle bearings. Just get a new set, it beats taking it to a shop or buying a new mower.
