Having a hard time justifying $300 to rebuild the spindles and replace pulleys on my deck.  The deck is a (i believe) 05-36MS01 on my 1982 C85. I found these kits on Pat's and was wondering if anyone had tried to adapt them to a deck like mine?  Thanks

300$ seems pretty high is there a reason your replacing all the pulleys? I believe most just replace bearings and blades but i know the pulleys can be damaged when removing them. Been there done. As for adapting the newer style spindles as long as they fit and the depth of the blades are right and you can get the pulley sizes and rpm that the blades would be spinning right go for it

The photo doesn't show it very well but the pulleys are badly corroded.  The deck itself is in pretty good shape, good and solid and all parts there. I haven't taken the spindles apart yet but they seem a little tight so I was hoping the shafts and housings are good and just needing to replace the bearings and seals. Those items plus pulleys,belt and blades were about $300.  Was looking at those spindle kits as a backup plan if mine turn out to be shot. I'm near Richmond, VA.

Looks great JackHorse. Thanks for posting your success! :handgestures-thumbupright:

 

My Ms. loved the RD deck. She towed a Parker or Jackson, whatever it was, sweeper. Lawns looked great when I pulled in the driveway after wo....wo....WORK.  :ROTF:

      I got a couple of questions here, my (1997-ish) Toro Wheel Horse 520H (hydro) was doing a couple of things that I noticed. First thing I noticed is that after an hour or so of cutting grass, I noticed the hydro temp light went on. The fluid level was fine. I even changed the fluid at the beginning of this season. So I am at a loss as to what is going on.
       
      Secondly, I noticed after riding the tractor for a while, when I back off the throttle, I can hear squeaking. It sounds like it is coming from the pulley under the seat ( I am guessing where the hydro fluid pump/fan is).
       
      Ay help/ advice/ comments would be appreciated. thanks in advance!

      Help please
      I have a 36" deck ( not the one in picture which is complete) on a 216-5 and its missing the raised double drive pulley taking drive from vertical engine to deck  can any one help me locate either complete deck or pulley assembly? Or advise if possible to fit a deck with the wider mounting frame.
      Thanks Mark

      I would like to check with you guys about the pros and cons of increasing the speed of the deck blades, possibly by increasing the diameter of the drive pulley on the PTO clutch. Anybody do this????? I'm not so worried about the spindle shafts on the deck as I grease the heck out of them on a regular basis. The Mule longevity however, without a grease fitting concerns me. Your thoughts????
