"42" Rd mower deck ?

Recommended Posts

I have a "42" RD mower deck model #78350. I'm going to motion industries for new bearings. Part # 109966. Is this # superseded to a new bearing #? I also wanted to get O rings. Part # 971015. Is this something I can get at a local hardware store? What I thought was a bad bad belt, was 2 bad bearings. I hadn't used the deck much. When I did, it was making a light knocking sound. I inspected the belt. I thought it was bad. 2 of the 6 bearings were bad!! The deck also had 2 cracks in it. By the carriage mounts. Welded it up. Also welded a few beads along the rectangular plate underneath.

109966 is still a good number. 

Should be a common 6203 bearing  (17mm x 40mm x 12mm)

 

Local o-rings should be fine but don't know the size required.

You went all the way fixing that deck, should be good for another thirty years when you are finished. I have always had great luck going to NAPA, just take in the old parts and they will come up with a matching part if it exists.

I don't think the O ring really does much anyways if you can't find them.

 

Deck and spindles look to be in real good shape. A little paint and it would look like new.

Looks like exactly what I did last fall-including the welding.  I used high quality sealed bearings and removed the zerks and replaced them with a set screw.  If you put too much grease in them anyway you would blow out the seal on single sided bearings

Thanks guys, I agree Cleat. I don't think the O ring does much good. They were smashed. There was nothing left of them. I found a couple more cracks around the right spindle mount opening. The bearings had grease in them.  I thought 22 years and about 700- 800 hours on the deck isn't  to bad.

      Having problems. Rod for PTO will not drop down far enough. So I needed to take top bracket off to get rid out and remove belt?   Next item, is there a truck to remove belt?  I can not get it out of pulley area as it is twisted and to tight to pull through. What is the trick?  I reserved forcing through as I am not sure it will go back on?  See pics.  I appreciate any help I can get. First time pulling off the deck.

      I am in search of a mower deck for a 518xi Toro lawn tractor.  This tractor was inherited from my father who passed away.  This tractor only has 56 hours on it, and was only used to blow snow in Northern Michigan.  I am located in South Dakota and have a small acreage.  I am looking for a complete deck, 48, 52 or 60 inches.
      Thank you,
      Dave

      The title pretty much sums it up.  I picked up lawn ranger? carcass for $20 in hopes the deck will work on my 606.  It looks like they both use the attach-o-mattic, but I could be wrong.
       
      Any help is appreciated.  Also if anyone needs parts let me know. It doesn't have an engine, fuel tank, hood, front rims, or probably other things too.  (Maybe I should just list what it does have, might be shorter)


      Thanks!

      I got a phone call from a friend today who said a neighbor got some Wheel Horse parts to sell. I got this 36 inch rear discharge deck from him for $20. I can't find any ID tags on it. Does anyone know what it fits or what model number it is?
