can the bearings be replaced?

it is from a Deere STX38 - black mower deck

 

Deere wants over $60 

Amazon wants $44 shipped

 

the mower is my neighbor's - so I done want to take it apart to see if them can be fixed 

 

hear it the the problem

I had to work on the motor for him and it is work great

idle the rpms are around 1250

it high speed the rpms are around 3700

you can drive it around the rpms do not drop

but turn on the mower deck and the rpms drop to around 2950

yes I did grease the spindles and the 2 idle pulleys seams okay

 

I had to replace the spindles, if I can just replace the bearing in the spindles

 

has anybody replaced the bearings in the spindle?

 

thanks for any help

If you can get a new spindle shipped for $44, I'd say "why waste the time" and buy a new set. 

 

If you give me a part number I might be able to beat the price.  :D

I can't beat those prices without leaving barely enough to make it worth my time to push the mouse to order it! 

 

However, if you decide to order from your poor starving site supporter, I can do $44 plus shipping.

Are you sure it's the bearings causing that much drag? Could it be a governor problem or some other issue to cause the engine to lack power?

$44 is a steal!

List is over $75

Sorry Ben...  I often go outside the realm of Mudder Deere to shop for parts as the machines they make are increasingly made up of other manufacturers pieces and parts..  I would order from you @ that price for sure!  

 

Thanks for supporting this place!!

Good observation and worthy of investigation as well..
