36" RD conversion

2 posts in this topic

Hi, I found a 200 series RD 36" mower (05-36XR01-11097) in really great shape. It was from a vertical shaft mower and had the mower drive belt guide towards the rear as a separate unit (not on the front spindle). I am trying to convert it to use on my 1972 Commando.  The spindles are have round shafts with grease fittings.   The spindle shafts look long enough to use the double belt pulley on the front spindle.  Can you still buy the double belt pulleys that will fit on these round spindle shafts?  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!  I have two double belt pulleys from old decks but the are for the shafts with two flat sides!

The decks with the 3/4" round shafts are the latest design they used so parts including blades are much easier to find.

This is what you are trying to get to using the appropriate drive belt I think

      It took me forever and a year but last spring i found something that fits perfectly. Had to measure the 3 hole separation, but found snapper occasionally uses a blade of the same spec. Readily available online although i have forgotten the site.
