Got any pics of the 3-bolt pattern? Not familiar with the Cub design but know others.

Great looking 682, hope you find a spindle that will work.

You might look at this PDF. http://www.docstoc.c...SHMOWER-PARTS-B
It has some pics of quills with some measurements. Maybe one of them will work. Even if you have to replace all three at $50 each, it's still cheaper than just one OEM.

Alan, I bookmarked that. Pretty neat things in there. May come in handy later. Thanks!

You might try some from a 48" or 42" deck some of those have cast iron housings and use Chevy wheel bearings. I rebuilt mine for about $20 a piece.


Do you by any chance have a part number for the assembly?

No pictures yet but I messured the hole to hole spacing this morning and it is roughly 3-5/8"

Thank you, I'll check that site out! It would be nice to figure out a good replacement to share with the others in my boat...

I love the 82s and the Quietlines. The styling and the mechanics were the last and best IHC gts. I almost had one for free, but it had a type 1 engine and had been in a river flood. I didn't have the time for that much work.

Yeah, they are pretty. The engine has got to be one of the quietest and smoothest running engines I've ever used. Since the deck is going through a rebuild I put it on yard sweeper duty Friday. The hydro really is nice for that.

I think there are 2 versions of the spindles. The early style was norebuildable and the later ones were rebuildable. To find reasonable replacements, have you checked with Patton Acres or Ray's IH Parts yet? Either one of those guys should have what you need. Also I saw a set on ebay last night too.

Thanks AJ. Mine are what I would consider semi-rebuildable. They use the shaft/bearing parts in the picture below. I will just rebuild these if I have to but I would prefer to change over to a fully rebuildable... I'm surprised that one of the CC specialist companies haven't marketed a replacement spindle for these "C" decks.

I worked on my spindles last night... These assemblies have to be one of the worst designs. The shaft/bearing piece (shown above) is sandwiched between two stamped housing halves. When these halves wear out they allow the whold shaft/bearing to wabble around. I should be able to get another couple of years out of two my three shaft/bearing assemblies so I cleaned them up and greased them. Then I put the stamped housings in the press and "tightened" them up a little. I'm going to see how they do.

I need a sandblasting cabinet... or a friend with one.

As I have followed your thread I have wondered if you could adapt another type/brand of spindle to the deck. I am thinking the classic Deere spindle that is easily rebuild and was used on millions of decks. Any thoughts on this?

Not sure but I would like to find out. The budget is limited these days so I can't afford to just buy a bunch of them to try out though. I have started on the rebuild of mine and once I get one of them back together I will make a drawing of it to compare to others.

Also, I am finding strange things when I search for 44C or 44A decks... Sometimes they have wheels on the front and sometimes they don't. I can't seem to find any ryme or reason. Anyone have any idea?

examples of "44A":

There are several different types of JD spindles on this search:
