Hey;

I have two bad bearings on the front mule drive pulleys on this LGT 120, , small is 3-1/2" O.D. large is 4-1/2" O.D with the 1/2" V belt.

Any help in locating new ones would be appreciated.

All the best

I just quickly scanned ebay for you real quick & didnt see ford mule drives specifically however i did get mine from there for my Sears. 778 mule drives popped up however in the search so you may wanna try there. I paid under $25 for mine. Good luck...

You should be able to buy new pulleys with bearings at TSC, Harbor Freight etc....lots of places. They just bolt on.

Shouldn't be that hard to find those pulleys. Normal off the shelf Items, I would think!

Hey ;

I drove out to Farm and Fleet but no luck on the pulleys.

On the arnold site I saw some 4" and 3" pulleys, but not sure if they are for 1/2" belts. If they match, will the one inch reduction from the stock ones make any difference?

Thanks

The only difference in smaller pulleys would be belt length. You would need a shorter one.
