WHX12

Pulleys & idlers for Free

Recommended Posts

I've done this with a couple of Mule Drive pulleys and it's as simple as WHX^ described.   I scribe a match mark before I take the 2 halves apart to put it back exactly as it came apart. I also use some of the Blue Loctite on the nuts just for insurance.

Yes works excellent on muleys Oliver.. This one just happened to have that extra (drain???)  hole in it for reference on reassembly. Leave it open for drainage if used in a horizontal app.

Best thing about this is the pully can be easiliy reseparated for future replace. :)

Genius!  Between this idea and bringing a bike to the big show, I'd say you're a genius!

Excellent write up Jim and great pictures.  If you don't mind, I will move this thread to the "reference section" in a couple weeks.  It is worthy of that.  :handgestures-thumbupright:

This one was given to me by another member. It is the clutch idler pully for tractors with that 5003/5010 transmissions. The bearing was seized and I needed it for the mounting stud. I will rplace the bearing in it so if someone else needs one let me know.

 

It helps if grind down the top of the rivet flat for a good center punch. This one has a 30 OD x 10 ID x 9 width (MM) or a very common 6200 bearing. 5 clams on ebay.

OK now for the what not to do. After drilling the heads off the rivets they punch out easy just make sure you do it on a FLAT surface and not on the top of the vise like I did...otherwise it will end up looking like this. I can straiten this out but the idea is not to do it in the first place! One of those "I knew better not to do that"  things.....56 yo metal bends pretty easy!

      Hello, everyone and thank you in advance. I got bit by the bug a few months ago and bought a 1974 b 80  the rod broke, about a month after i bought it. So to keep my 4yr old mowing i picked up a c120 auto and i was going to change rear wheel seals pulled the hub to find the axle moves up and down and side to side about an 1/8"  what's involved in put in new bearing and does it need to be done now or a winter project. Thanks  
       
       
       
               PS sorry about the grammar

      I have a snowblower that has a bad bearing inside the auger on the chain side. Took it apart, and now I can't find a bearing like the one I need! One thing I need to know is if these parts are metric or American? If it is American, it is a 3/4" inside diameter, 1 5/8" outside diameter, 7/16" width. Anybody have a place they get them? Near Rochester, MN. It is a model 53321 snowblower I think as the model # plate is really scratched up.

      When going thru my front end I decided to replace the front wheel bearings, the real common 1 3/8" x 3/4".  After getting a set of four off ebay they came with the grease seals on both the outside and inside. Question is should I remove the seals on the backside and continue to grease thru the zerk or let them ride as sealed bearings? My inclination is to let them ride as sealed bearings.
