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.
