Tiller bearings

Recommended Posts

Just wondering on the 36" tiller (990503) does the case need to be split to change the tine shaft bearings or can it be done without splitting the case? Are the nuts that are inside the case that hold the pillow block in place welded to the case? Thanks for any help.

I never split the case when I replaced the bearings on one I had a long while back. The nuts must be fastened to the back of the case plate somehow because the bolts went in and out just fine. Its the tine shafts that gave me fits. Soaked them repeatedly, tried heat. Heated them to cherry red and still wouldnt budge. Ended up repeatedly heating and beating them off. Completely ruined one side in the process. Managed to weld it up and re -use it with a slight wobble to it. Wasnt interested in paying over $100 for a new shaft. Got a used one now to replace it with when I decide to take the time.

I think there are a couple of eccentric lock collars you have to get off. Seems I had trouble with removing those too. I think the bearings were the easiexst removal of the whole operation. My overall experience was enough to last a lifetime. Hopefully yours will be better..

Thanks Sam for the help. I got it finished. I tried heating and beating to no end. Finally decided since I had 4 or 5 extra sets of tineshafts that I would cut the tineshafts off of this tiller and then cut along the top of the keyway with my sawsall. That approach worked great and now I have it back together.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
