Question about Garden
Posted by Anonymous on
I've been down this road before and I'd suggest if you really need them out, use a press. I do believe they are pressed in and trying to beat them out without damaging something isn't going to be easy.
I didn't have access to a press and couldn't get mine free. The mandrels on mine were all good except it sounded like they needed grease and considering it had been sitting outside for a few years when I revived the old mower I'm sure it would have been a matter of time before I burnt a bearing. So, and I'm not saying this is the best way, but I drilled a 1/16" hole throw the bearing housing once I got the blades off the bottom of the shaft and the pulleys off the top. I discovered the top bearings have a removable shield that protects the bearings and I was able to pack grease here and put the cover back on. I drilled through the bottom of the mandrel shaft and it took about 1/4" to reach the bearings. I then took a basketball needle and cut the needle off to about a 1/4" deep to insert into the hole I just drilled. It worked, I was about to pump grease in until it came out around the bearing rails and then gave it a spin and added more. I cleaned up around the hole then added silicone to seal the hole. I think it will get me another few years this way and I know the bearings are covered in fresh grease now. We'll see.
