I have been working on my ratty 44c deck recently. I grabbed the blades and gave them a shake which made the pulleys wobble so I thought the bearings were worn. I bought three new replacement spindles and disassembled the spindle housings to replace the spindles. Upon inspection I found the spindle bearings weren't actually loose rather the spindle was loose in the housing (I think). The spindles were a little stiff and one was frozen. I pumped them full of grease, each one took about 30 pumps with a small hand held gun. All of them started to spin smoothly. I pumped slowly so as not to damage the seals. You can see grease escaping the lower seal on the right side looks rusty compared to the upper seal. I guess some water had entered where the grease should have been. If I use these old spindles I'll try to get more of that rusty grease out of them.

Probably won't last long as dark and rusty looking as that grease looks. Grease likely tightened up the bearing too, which will last about 2 min once they are engaged with the engine. Keep an eye on them.

I just bought a sandblast cabinet which I am using to clean up the rusty bits. I started with the spindle housings. Here is a set blasted primed and painted.

I also have a tank sandblaster that I will use to clean up the crusty deck. There are a few pin holes in the deck that needs attention from my mig welder. I need welding practice so this is the perfect opportunity. Pictured are the badly pitted deck and reinforcement plate. You can see I have my hands full but I hope to be mowing this spring.

Default worn mule drive

While I'm working on the mower deck, what is a good way to fix my worn mule drive lift holes? I thought a bushing of some sort would work but I can get them welded up and re-drilled. The hole on the left is about 50% taller than it used to be.

Default bronze bushings for worn mule drive

Looks like these will do the trick.

Mcmaster has 1/2" high-load oil-embedded bushings in various sizes for 1 or 2 dollars. I plan to drill the egged out holes to 5/8" or 11/16" and pop in a bushing

Those won't last long. It will beat them to pieces. Better off welding and redrilling them.

Let us know how you make out, those old spindle housings get worn out and create the slop.

Those are bronze, they will disintegrate in a matter of minutes upon use.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
