Recently I have come across a solution for the 3/4" deck spindle shafts that have the 2"+ big nut on the blade end. Every one I have come across are spinning and make blade changes difficult! Cut the nut off with sawzall and thread the shaft down with a die and then thread on a 3/4NF jam nut to the end of the threads (use blue locktite ). I measure the distance from the pulley end of shaft to the front of the big nut before removing so that I thread the shaft down the correct distance. You will notice in the picture the big nut vibrated loose before i could finish cutting it. This is my 5th repair like this. Makes me wonder if others are doing the same.
I refurbished my 1985 Side Discharge Deck model j05-42MS04. And my son started mowing with it this summer on the 312-8. I've read many threads about these WH decks mowing low but were Texas newbies when it comes to mowing with them So mowing low is a known issue but has anyone come up with a solution? Since these decks are free floating has anyone tried installing larger rear deck wheels?? I'm thinking larger front roller would not help since if. I understand correctly these should not always be touching. Im looking for ideas ? I need a picture of the finished deck but you can see from these pics I completely disassembled the deck, replaced all bearing and sliders etc. Took it to bare metal. Did some straightening And repainted it.
