Oh, not sure, but those deck spindles may get pricey.  Many from that era have unrebuildable spindles, sealed units you can't do anything with.  Around $100+ each!!!!!  If this is the case, I'd opt to swap the spindles to a rebuildable type.

:ditto:   Can't beat the deal, or the wife!   :thumbs:   Give her a hug from all of us!

Yeah, I agree.  Esp. the wife.  We've been married 37 years come November 11th.  (I married her on Veteran's Day just so I wouldn't forget my anniversary.....just kidding).  We've been through some real tough times, but we've hung together, and I'm glad...

I don't know if any of the older metal hoods would be a direct bolt on but to me at least it'd be worth the extra effort to install one.

Thanks.  The CC Quietline hoods and panels have similar lines, but a different grill.  Might be a good candidate...

Well, they have grease zerks in them so I'm hoping they can be rebuilt...

That looks like a 50C deck. If it is they can be rebuilt.

I know my 48" deck could have come with either the "water pump" type spindles, or the "Chevy wheel bearing" type. Mine has the chevy type. Rebuilding these was like $40.00 apiece. The water pump type is about $68.00 apiece.

I went out and found the data tag... had to clean it off a little.  Looks like it's a 44C deck, so I assume it's similar to the 50C.

Yep. Same design. Different width.
