I almost did it last nite

Recommended Posts

Started mowing last nite, 5 minutes in, threw the center deck bearing on my 48 inch deck. if I wouldn't have have had 2 bearings sitting around I would have broken out the brand new 1999 48" deck, I have changed bearings so many times I can do the job in a half hour. I was as close as ever to using that deck.

I'm not the only one who keeps a spare set of deck bearings around?

Only, the last rebuild, I made sure that the word "CHINA" was nowhere close to the ones I put in the deck. The Peer bearings sold by many Simplicity dealers, are from China. I spent a lot more on this set of bearings, will let you know about how long they last.

As a general rule better quality bearings can be bought from industrial

supply houses for less $$$ than can be bought from equipment parts dept as original replacments.

Went out again next day after about 5 minutes idler pulley for the hydro pump froze up and burned the belt pretty bad, Luckily had a spare idler and belt. Which bearing will go next, this 916h of mine has 100 lives.

      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!😁
