To bend or not to bend - 185 Mule drive pulley bracket

Postby widespreadpanic » Tue Apr 06, 2021 6:32 pm

Need a couple posts to look at the pdf manuals. I think it is a 31 or 3260 mower, need to ID. 185 lo boy pulley bearing exploded. Think I found a bearing online will post link if it is the right one. Now question is... Are those brackets supposed to be 90 or does the left bend do something with tension or orienting the belt with the center spindle?

I put the torch on it and bent it back to 90 with a couple whacks of the Tanya Harding.
