Thanks for sharing that video with us. That deck looks in reasonably good condition to start with.

The deck is very straight for its age, the spindles will have to be rebuilt, I will have to replace the pullies I bent two of them trying to pull them, but at least they are all the same.

I need. Find a machine shop to make some bushings for the rear roller. I am thinking some hardened bushing stock would be the thing to use

Thanks for the video. Looking forward to how it turns out. I just took mine apart last weekend for general cleaning and to scope things out. So far no issues.

Definitely keep your videos coming. I enjoyed looking at your videos on restoring the MF 10. I have been trying to get the pulleys off of my 610 deck and have not had much luck. I have used PB Blaster, heat and a gear puller. One pulley is half way off the shaft but will go no further. I tried a second one and I have yet to get it to move.

Any suggestions?

I will wind up cutting the pullies off, and I will have to cut the bolts that hold the spindles on as well.

I did the same, when I did my 610 deck. Much easier, than heating and beating. I then bought blank pulleys, and weld in hubs.
Seemed to be the cheapest way to go.

Thanks for the video.

Where would I go to find replacement pulleys or "blank pulleys and weld in hubs"?

I plan to go to one of those Industrial Supply Stores, they sell bearings, seals, pullies, and other type stuff.

Thanks for the info, I just want to make sure that I have replacements before I start cutting on the old pulleys.

The spindle pulleys on the 610 mower are the same as the pair on the PTO mule drive/jack shaft assembly on the MF10 and MF12. They come up on ebay quite often for about $35 per pair- sometimes less if you are lucky.
