Question about Mtd Garden
I have early 90's MTD lawnmower with a 42" cut at 18 hp.
The mmiddle blade appears to either slip or not work at all.
This is a belt drive blade system. Is there something that I should be checking for. The blade is attached quite tight to the bottom of the mower deck.
Raise the deck and reach into the bad blade and try and turn it. If it turns easily then try to wiggle the blade up and down. If it moves up and down then the bearings are bad. You will have to remove the shaft and install new bearings. It is best to take it to a shop that can replace them. If you try and beat them off with a hammer you will probably mess up the shaft. I know from experience. You might be able to buy the whole new shaft with bearings already installed pretty cheap. Just find your part number and go to www.jackssmallengines.com and input the part number into the search box. They have reasonable shipping prices. You can also go to your local small engine repair shop they might even have free shipping.
Good luck and let me know if this helps.
