Deck spindle moves???

Recommended Posts

More from previous 712H 48" mower deck 1690502 Well after getting off the pully, sheeve (spelling). One of the spindles on the side of the deck moves up and down when grabbed and moved, the other does not. Ok question is when taking off the sheeve a (light hammering to break the rusted thing off) could i have moved the lower bearing up about 1/4". If so has anybody had this happened should i get a new one and will it hurt anything to use it as is. And thanks to whomever told me to buy the bearings and the shaft from the dealer. The bearings were already pressed meaning no work at all!!! To everyone thanks for all the advice and parts It brought another AC back to life!

When I rebuilt my deck last summer, I had a friend press out the old bearings and press in the new ones in. When I started to install the units, I noticed that two of mine had the up and down movement same as yours. I removed the pulley and installed shim washers to remove the slack. Also when I bolted the arbors on to the deck, the center pulley was sitting too low for the belt to track properly. I had to remove that pulley and put in additional washers to raise it into proper alignment with the outer pulleys. It now works great and is very quiet.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
