The wheel bearings in one of the front wheels of my 416-8 imploded the other day while mowing. 32 years old, I'm not complaining. Anyway, with the advice of another thread I picked up a set of 4 flanged bearings off an ebay seller. . .3/4" ID, 1 3/8" OD. Problem is they are a loose fit in the wheel hub. I should need to tap them in, but they just slide in and out. No real play, but they can just fall out. The insides of the hubs are clearly worn. Any advice on snugging up the bearings"
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?)
