3410 deck problems

Recommended Posts

Chris727

Someone put the wrong middle spindle on this 42 deck off a 3410. Does the pulley height look right? The middle blade is lower than the other two. I plan to just get a different deck because this one is rusted out very badly, unless anyone has a better suggestion? Do the earlier 42 inch decks from 2210, b110 etc have the same height for the center pulley? I know the earlier decks have different brackets but I could use my old ones. Happy Holidays. -Chris

What you have there is a older deck that has had the newer type splined shaft and split cup spindle/bearing housing installed. These are installed into older decks because lack of availability of the original type of shaft. Usually these use 2 aluminum spacers to put the blade at close to the same level as the others. The thing that most customers are not told is that unless you replace all 3 with the newer style using the aluminum spacer rings is that the blades will end up uneven in relation to each other. I have mowed with these decks having one replacement spindle like yours and the only way I could get them to mow evenly is to replace all 3 spindle assemblies. I have a 48" deck so equipped with all 3 new type spindles and it mows great. Does anyone know the part number for those aluminum spacers? and/or where I can get more? and how much?? All the ones I have obtained thus far have been off junk decks I have parted out.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
