If replacing just the blades, it's easier to turn the mower up, lock the blade down with a piece of wood or ?? to prevent moving while taking bolt off. It takes about 3min to change them this way.

Vibrating 38" deck on MTD yardman mower


Hi, first replace the blade spindle bearings, if you had to hit them to free them up the bearings are shot. Secondly, replace the deck belt. Because you engaged the blades with a siezed bearing the belt will have a worn section where the v will be thinner thus causing the vibration as it passes through the pulleys. Regards Phil.

Cutting blade barring ***


I think that part is called a mandrel, pulley on top and blade on the bottom.
Generally you remove the deck, take off the deck belt, take off the covers, take off the blade, remove the bolts holding the mandrel to the deck. Get a new mandrel at a sears store or small engine repair shop and reassemble in reverse order. May want to do them all while you are at it and save yourself duplication of work next year.

The oil on your pulley could definitely be the culprit. You need friction in order for your belts to work properly.

check for a broken belt tension er or maybe grass clippings under belt area, check for a broken or loose pulley bearing, even a bent shaft on the deck.

I need to remove a bent blade on a yard machines 42 inch deck.


To remove the blades from a tiller, all you need to do is pull the pins out of the blades at the shaft and remove the offending blade. If it is an inner blade, it too will have a pin. The pins have a head on one end, pass through the shaft, and a locking pin through the other end.

Craftsman mandrel replacement::?????HELP


You dont have to drop the deck. Remove the belt first then hold the blade in place so you can loosen the nut on top of the pulley. after you remove the pully then remove the blade. There are 3 bolts holding the mandrel in place remove the bolts. Then pull the mandrel out from underneath the mower deck. There is a shroud that will come loose with it or it may stick from accumilated grass regardless it needs to go back during reassembly. When putting it back together the 3 bolts are usually self tapping into the new aluminum mandrel. Its much easier to put these in and take them out before you install the new mandrel as the bolts cut the threads.

Hope this helps
