I believe you have to remove the spindle housing then remove the snap ring, ( you may need to clean and scrape to locate the snap ring) from the inside of housing. Now you should be able to press the shaft from the housing. Or if necessary support housing with blocks so as to drive the shaft from the housing. I would spin the nut on the shaft, then place a piece of hardwood on the shaft and drive it out with a three pound sledge. There may be a snap ring for the shaft and one for the bearings. There may not be one for the shaft as it bolts to the pulley. At any rate this should accomplish you goal. There is usually a snap ring that retains the bearings, if this is what you need to replace.

SOURCE: removing tractor deck to change belt and blades?

if i am thinking of the right model you may be able to get away with first taking off the blade, then to remove the deck should be a number of bolts under the chassis and on top of the deck where it meets the frame... you can get your parts here if your having trouble finding them

SOURCE: loud screech noise from deck area

This can be due to a belt slipping or a bad spindle bearing.
And on the difficulty scale,10 being extremely difficult, The belt would be a 1 or 2 and the spindle about 6 or 7 (because the deck usually needs removed for this job)

How do I remove blade spindle from housing on Mountfield 1436m? I have removed the pulley and the blade boss. I have removed the circlip from the blade side of the spindle. The spindle still seems ver


This will require a heavy three pound hammer and two pieces of hardwood to support the hub. It is really supposed to be pressed in. But support with blocks, use a piece of oak between shaft and hammer to keep from damaging the shaft. I t may require many hard blows. If you have a press, that is the way to go. Spray some PB blaster penetrant on it and let it sit for awhile. You should have to pound down away from the snap ring. Hope this helps, please post a comment that this is solved on fixya.com. So I get credit for a solved problem if it does. If not, check back and give me more info.

Toro 50" time cutter when engaging blade loud


I would remove the deck and belt, then spin each blade to isolate the loud noise. Also, make sure the blades are not bent hitting the deck. I always balance my blades after sharpening as well. By isolating the bearings spinning them one at a time, this will tell you where your problem lies. Hope this helps!

Loss of power when blades engaded.


Remove deck belt from blade pulleys and Tri to spin blades by hand. If they don't spin freely, you probably need new spindle bearings but if you do need a new spindle I would replace the whole spindle housing... Just make sure the one (s) you buy has housing, spindle, bearings, nut and washer.

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.

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

cheers hope it helps

I have a troy bilt riding lawn mover, it cuts the grass uneven, changed blades thinking it was the problem, but it wasn't. do they have any kind of adjustments for the blades?


The best bet is to work on the deck with it removed from the tractor. You may find the bearings are out in one of the spindles. Quite often someone hits something and the deck housing is bent where the spindle bolts to it. Use a tape measure and measure the distance from the deck to the blade. Compare the two spindles (3 if it's 3 blades) . You'll find one spindle is tilted so that it is not 90 degree to the deck. What I do is once I've located the offending spindle, and which direction it is tilted, I remove the blade, slide a piece of pipe about 4' long over the spindle (usually 1-1/2 or 2" pipe) so it clears the hub and bend it. Then I reinstall the blade and measure it again.

My Cub Cadet i1042 tractor shuts off when the blade is engaged. This happened after I ran over a ***** and/or stump. Every time I try to engage the blade the engine shuts off.


Check for bent blade against deck housing.Possible you bent something on mowing deck,check all spindles and pulleys.You could have something hung on blade and making contact with deck. Rarely will the motor be hurt from hitting object on rider.

Mower deck spindle replacement


first take the blade off the spindle, then take the belt off the top, now there should be a nut on the top of the spindle you will have to remove that nut once you get that one off the pully will come off the spindle, now you will have to remove the bolts holding the spindle housing to the deck, put the spindle housing in a vise, put the nut back on the top of the spindle so that if you mass the threads with the hammer you are going to hit it with them you can fix them with the nut by taking it off again... now you have the nut on the top of the spindle and its in the vise, now hit the spindle to knock the bearing out of the bottum once you push the bearing out, you can remove the spindle out the bottum, now flip the housing over and take a punch and push the other bearing out if you are going to replace the bearings when replacing the spindle, i would reconend it... if you need anything else just xomment and ill repost...
good luck
