Dane, I Wish I knew more about the JD Decks so I could Help...

There is a thread about rebuilding spindles here, will try to find it. The reason I mention it, is if you use heat, you're probably going to need to replace the lower bearings unless you get lucky.

Here it is. The deck is off a 110, but I'm hopeful most of the principles apply

I haven't had the ones on the 140 apart but I believe it is the same as the 212 and on that deck the square part of the carriage bolt was rusted and rounded off as soon as I spun the nut. So I ended up using a air die grinder with a cut off disc to cut the nut off and will replace them with new bolts when I get ready to reassemble it.

What do you mean by get the hydro ports on the back? Mine are there and work.

For the tiller and 3-pt the ports are moved to the back I believe. I have both sets of mine up front, and the ones on the rear for the deck lift.

I need to get the blades off the spindles. Are they reverse thread? Normal? Do I need to apply heat to break something loose? Thanks for the link, as that will come in handy if I rebuild these spindles.

Dane they are regular thread. You might need some force to break them loose. Heat will help. Sometimes an impact gun cannot even break them loose. If this is the case get a large breaker bar and put a pipe on the end of it. Use a big piece of wood like a stop to keep the blade from turning. You'll get them. Good luck :thumbs:

I thought you were talking about the bolts holding the spindle to the deck.

I tried a lug driver to no avail, and I can get just about anything with it. I think I am going to remove the deck, and let it sit for a while with PB on the bolts, then try later.

Might have my Pap's Harley sold for him tomorrow, and he said I get 20%, and if I do I am putting in an order for a Buford Bucket.

Dane. Heat the bolt up but not red hot. Touch it with a candle for a while to get the wax down in the seized section. That bolt should come out with a impact after that. Just don't let everything cool off..
