Mower spindle repair

Recommended Posts


Thanks for the reply. I have the manual and saw to apply sealant when reassembling, but do I just forcefully pry them apart? I hate to really beat on it for fear of warping one or the other.

Thanks to all for the responses. I found that the top bolt was barely tightened and when I removed it the threads were in bad shape so thinking the the shaft may be the same. Also the bottom end of the shaft was butchered to where there were no splines to mate with the spline washer. Given the difficulty of getting the thing apart I decided to just replace the whole thing with parts from Jack. I need a mower and have a Simplicity Grabber and an antique car that I have to work on. Does anyone know of another living Grabber? I've not found any except one in Australia that was on Ebay years ago. Again, Thank you all.

      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!😁
