42" mower center arbor diagram?

Recommended Posts


Wondering if anyone has an assembly diagram for the arbor? Previous owner pulled it apart "about 10 yrs. ago" and doesn't remember how it went together. Bearings were shot, and threw them away along with the woodruf keys. I am going to get new bearings and keys, and see if I can save the shaft as the vibration must have been so bad that the keyways are wobbled out, and the pulleys vibrated loose.

I have never had one of these apart on my own decks, so want to be able to do it correctly.

Can't seem to get anything off the Simplicity site.

Thanks much, Ken. This is exactly what I needed. Now will go buy the bearings and keys and get to work on it!

Sure is great to be a member of a group like this that has so much more knowledge than I do!

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
