Where's your go-to source for QUALITY 103119 bearing shaft assemblies? Also, I don't have my deck apart yet, but seem to remember they're tough to remove from the housings. Any tips or tricks? Finally, just recently I've had a couple of the center bearings go loose on two different decks. Once is one thing, but twice? More than a coincidence? Should I be releasing tension on the belt by loosening the mule drive when not in use? We've had WH tractors for over 40+ years and I've never done that before! THANKS in advance!
I need some confirmation from some experts please! The quick background is that my 1975 B-80 has had "slop" in the steering for some time, jumping teeth any time you attempted to turn the wheel when stopped or slowly moving. The gear teeth on both the upper and lower shaft were worn, but the lower was worse and when I found one at a good price on eBay I finally decided to do something about it, After a lot of cursing, I finally got the old one out, but when I went to install the new shaft it would not fit. A comparison of the two parts shows the new part to be at least 2" longer. So my question is, am I correct in assuming that the lower steering shafts remained constant for all four years the B-80 was built? I ask because the shaft was sold specifically as a B-80 part. I haven't contacted the seller yet and I have no reason to expect any difficulties returning the part, but before I claim the part was misidentified, I'd like to make sure I know what the heck I'm talking about. Also, while you can't see it very well in the photo, the shaft from my tractor (the shorter one) has three holes below the gear teeth, the new one does not. Can anyone with a B-80 confirm their's does/doesn't have the holes? Any input would be appreciated!
