   All I can say is amazing!!!!! I have to note  that having bought from you before, these bearings are something to rival your other products and that is saying something.I may not need any now but I may purchase some as insurance.Well done.Luck,JAinVA

And the 3, 4 and 6 speeds. All the Unidrives with the 2-piece case up until Wheel Horse couldn't get them anymore. :)

If you have to ask, you haven't needed them and searched everywhere for them.

Just visit his web page and try not to drool on your keyboard.

Great job Lowell.

Is the price for individual bearings or a pair. Inquiring minds want to know.

The description reads....

 

Just remove the seals and install!

 
That's not been my experience. I had to split the case in order to get to the bearings...
 
But yeah, thanks for making these available. :)

Only thing you can do without spliitng cases is change the seals Cheetah...splitting the cases is most of the fun anyway!

 

More reference on this bearing folks ... this is just one of many threads here. No one, here anyway, would have ever thought in their wildest dreams, me included, would have thunk it that these would be NOS again.

That's my point. The description makes it sound like you just pull the seals and you can replace the bearings.

Actually, you don't have to remove the seals to replace the bearing (assuming they are ok).

I don't know Jim. I'll bet he will before the day is over.

Cheetah I think you're misinterpreting what he meant by that. :)

I'm wondering if he is referring to the black seal of the bearing? Wouldn't it have to be removed for oil to get through it?

I'm thinking Lowell already knows/assumes you have the cases split to find out your 1533's are toast :)

Which brings up another ? Lowell, should a guy just take out the inside seal or both? I would think both to allow some 80/90 to get out and lube the outer axle seal??

After reading @C-101plowerpower's post I did't notice your handle on the seal! Good eye Koen...

Richies got the same thought...oh no I'm in trouble...:huh:

Glad to see this got pinned ...in an hour I will have forgotten who has them! :wacko:

Ok, I see what's meant by "pull the seals and install" now. The bearings themselves have seals in them when you purchase them, and those need to be removed before installing.

The original 1533 are closed on one side only so I'd say just do the same. :)

      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.

      Well maybe not for free but on a budget! Some of you old timers  may already know this trick.
      I wash my horses & decks alot. Almost after every mowing i wash the tops of the decks off and have underside quick wash connects installed on all of my mowers. The price I pay for all this cleanliness is usually payed back in the form of noisy deck pulleys, idlers & spindle bearings. Hence I have been known to spend a small fortune on pulleys & idlers that, for some, can be 40-to 50 bucks a wack. So after finally figuring out that these things just have common bearings in them that could be replaced if they weren't welded in tighter than a buxom beautie in a brass bra!!
      Alas no more....
      First step is wire brush the offending noise maker so you can identify where it is spot welded together. Usually a dark spot or a dimple marks the spot. Center punch the spot, notice the symetrical patern of the welds.

      Next drill out the welds starting with 1/8" bit then 1/4". proceed to 5/16' if it appears that 1/4 " did not take out 90% of the weld.

      Next position the pully on a block of wood and separate the halfs.
      Use a small cold chisel.

      It may take a bit of effort to separate them. If the half bend a little they can be hammered strait after apart.
      Remove the bearing & drive out the bushing if it has one.

      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.
