Good Morning everybody!
I am in the process of sharpening the blades for my mowing deck (Model 78360 - Serial 7904987) and I noticed that the deck has a crack in it right where the bracket to the mounting hardware (to the tractor) is. SO I know I have to get that repaired.
But while I was at this, I thought I could do a good quick once over on the deck to make sure I am ready for the season.
What I would like to do is the following:
Change the bearings for the spindles (or pack them with more grease)
Get new rear tires (since they squeak)
And that's about it
If anyone here thinks I should do anything else, I would love to hear it!
Where does everyone get the hardware (bearings, wheels for these rebuilds?)
Does anybody have a good source for replacement front wheel bearings for a mid to late 1970's D160 wheel horse tractor? There are two push in bearing units (inner and outer) per wheel. I first attempted to replace with standard bearings but quickly found out these are not standard sizes. It's been a while since I check and I don't completely remember, but I think the wheelhorse bearings where something like 1/16" of an inch larger OD than a standard catalog bearing. At the time, I remember finding bearings but they wanted somthing like $100 for each bearing. I was able to located two bearings and did purchase them for a reasonible price, but am still looking for two for completing the set. The part numbe ron the two that I was able to locate is 104396. If anybody has any ideas, I would appreciate.
