WHX21

Pulleys & idlers for Free

I've done this with a couple of Mule Drive pulleys and it's as simple as WHX^ described.   I scribe a match mark before I take the 2 halves apart to put it back exactly as it came apart. I also use some of the Blue Loctite on the nuts just for insurance.

Yes works excellent on muleys Oliver.. This one just happened to have that extra (drain???)  hole in it for reference on reassembly. Leave it open for drainage if used in a horizontal app.

Best thing about this is the pully can be easiliy reseparated for future replace. :)

Genius!  Between this idea and bringing a bike to the big show, I'd say you're a genius!

Excellent write up Jim and great pictures.  If you don't mind, I will move this thread to the "reference section" in a couple weeks.  It is worthy of that.  :handgestures-thumbupright:

This one was given to me by another member. It is the clutch idler pully for tractors with that 5003/5010 transmissions. The bearing was seized and I needed it for the mounting stud. I will rplace the bearing in it so if someone else needs one let me know.

 

It helps if grind down the top of the rivet flat for a good center punch. This one has a 30 OD x 10 ID x 9 width (MM) or a very common 6200 bearing. 5 clams on ebay.

OK now for the what not to do. After drilling the heads off the rivets they punch out easy just make sure you do it on a FLAT surface and not on the top of the vise like I did...otherwise it will end up looking like this. I can straiten this out but the idea is not to do it in the first place! One of those "I knew better not to do that"  things.....56 yo metal bends pretty easy!

      Question. I have a 1990 single stage snow thrower for my 312-8. I am trying to replace the bearings on the drive shaft. How do you remove them? I have taken out the set screw, soaked the collar in pb blaster, put some heat to them, pounded on them. etc. They will not move. Am I missing something? The only thing that is curious is, there is only one set screw in each bearing collar. There appears to be a second partially drilled hole but no set screw installed and it does not appear to be tapped. What gives???

      Hi folks:
      The wheel bearings in one of the front wheels of my 416-8 imploded the other day while mowing. 32 years old, I'm not complaining. Anyway, with the advice of another thread I picked up a set of 4 flanged bearings off an ebay seller. . .3/4" ID, 1 3/8" OD. Problem is they are a loose fit in the wheel hub. I should need to tap them in, but they just slide in and out. No real play, but they can just fall out. The insides of the hubs are clearly worn.  Any advice on snugging up the bearings"
       
      Thanks,
      J

      Hi everyone I'm looking for the center/drive spindle assembly with double pulley for my 1985 36" rear discharge wh mower deck. The only #'s  I have are off the mower deck. 85-6MR01-08150   8038. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

      Good Morning everybody!
       
      I am in the process of sharpening the blades for my mowing deck (Model 78360 - Serial 7904987) and I noticed that the deck has a crack in it right where the bracket to the mounting hardware (to the tractor) is. SO I know I have to get that repaired.
       
      But while I was at this, I thought I could do a good quick once over on the deck to make sure I am ready for the season.
      What I would like to do is the following:
      Change the bearings for the spindles (or pack them with more grease)
      Get new rear tires (since they squeak)
      And that's about it
       
      If anyone here thinks I should do anything else, I would love to hear it!
       
      Where does everyone get the hardware (bearings, wheels for these rebuilds?)
