I have a 1980 Sears GT18 with 42 inch deck. I need to replace the center spindle bearings and seals. The Sears numbers are no longer available, though the Sears Parts site substitutes numbers for the bearing cone and cup, but not the seal.

The info I have is:

Bearing Cone:
Sears # 9494H--superseded to Hoover STD315656; Timken #LM12749

Bearing Cup:
Sears #888R Superseded to Hoover STD315666--don't have a Timken #.

Seal:
Sears # 882R--discontinued at Sears and haven't found any more info.

If any of you have found numbers that will work with this, please reply...

Thanks,

Utah Smitty

Hi Utah Smitty, Don't have the #'s you need but I have links:

Bearing cross reference: bearingtrends.com/bearing

This next site is located in the Mid-west but it's a great company to work with and I'm sure they can help find/get any bearing you need.
bearingheadquarters.com

Hope this helps.

Do you have the model# of the deck? looking for the seal for you, but the # will help. I found that the Timken Lm12749 comes in a set bearing and cone. They have some on Ebay for $9.19 w/free shipping.

If you have the old seal you can take it in to find a replacement by measurement. I have had luck this way at NAPA and a bearing specialty store. Or if you take the bore where the seal goes into and the shaft size works sometimes too. These places have seal lists that give the sizes and you can work from there. You might be looking till the cows come home for the part number. Just bear in mind that there may be more than one close option. Or just look at this link.

Well, I took the spindle apart and found out why the bearing had failed--no seals in it!!!! The lower bearing was in pieces and the rollers dinged the housing and shaft pretty good, the upper was still greased, but needed replaced. I drove out the old cups, and got the number from it-- Timken LM12711.

It took a couple hours, but I finally got a seal number from accurately measuring the bore (same as for the bearing cup), and the shaft size.

This is what I found:
Bore 1.8089"
Shaft 0.8664"

These basically work out to 22mm x 45mm x 7mm (ID x OD x Thickness).

There is a Chicago Rawhide number that's close-- # 8563, or, use the nominal metric dimensions. Seals are typically about $5-$7 each.

Hope this helps.

I have the deck number, but I just listed the Sears number (882R for the seal and the X-over for the bearings).

Thanks for the info. I found the Timken sets at our local "Parts Plus" auto parts store for about the same cost--plus there's no freight.
