I am in the process of rebuilding a 50" mower deck (09JC9838) and need some help.

Are there other sources for the idler pulley spring and spindle bearings, other than New Holland?

Idler spring ($25) and bearings ($35/ea) seem a LITTLE pricey to me.

Any suggestions?

Pictures to follow shortly.

Thanks

I haven't had to find bearings as yet. Do you have a local bearing supply? Maybe a lot cheaper there!

KennyP;

Thanks for the reply. Haven't checked local bearing suppliers, yet.

Also, I see that 2 types of spindle housings are used, the 6 hole aluminum housing was dropped in favor of the 4 hole steel housing. Any ideas as to why, and which is better?

Also, any sources for the spindle pulleys?

The idler springs for most decks can be purchased at a good hardware store, as long as you don't mind bending wire to make it work.

 

Spindle pulleys, keyed, can be found at an industrial supply store or a good farm/hardware store.

Thanks for the replys.
Does anyone have an opinion about the spindle housings?
I have both the aluminum and steel housings. Which is the better ones to use in my rebuild?

I'd use the steel ones over the aluminum, less likley to get damaged

I found a part number on MTF for bearings for the steel spindle, "E1ADKN7600A". I googled that number and found several sources, and one place had a price around $4.50. They are referring to them as Fordson pilot bearings, but their dimensions look similar to what I think mine are, if I can ever get the outside pulleys off. (And I'm not going to attempt that until I have replacements in hand.)
