well it wasnt fun, but i got it apart and i have started sandblasting the deck. when i put it back together, i think i will use a liberal amount of never-seize, so if i have to in the future i can take it apart again. question, since i have this apart should i replace bearings in seals in the spindles. they seem nice and tight, just dont think i want to go through this again. how expensive or difficult are they to replace and are they common failure items?
i also managed to salvage ALL of the pulleys except for the first one that i broke. everything appears to be useable. this was not fun, when i put it back together what is the best way to ensure that future rebuilds will be much easier? i plan on keeping this tractor and this belly mower for a long time.
