48" deck pt 2

Recommended Posts


Ever finish a project then you think about it and decide it just isn't right? I just fixed up a 48" deck ( 1690021 ) replaced all the bearings and it looked fine but I had to play with the center arbor shaft. Doctored up the shaft so the blade would fit. It has been updated to the 1685083 arbor assembly. As pointed out to me from PhanDad. Found one but it's $300 bucks. I did find the original arbor (T style 1685004SM ) $48. Now do I need to change the tin housing that I had so much fun taking apart last time (previous thread) or can I use it with the T style shaft. Sorry for the length.

Thanks for the reply. I will keep looking for just the shaft that I have or a used old style assembly. E bay most likely the best shot. unless someone here has one or the other:)

      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!😁
