Good evening everyone...I hope someone can help me out with some info on how to get the bearing off the spindle shaft.  I pressed the shaft through the upper bearing with no problem, but not quite sure how to tackle the lower bearing that is pressed onto the shaft.  I am working on a 917.253150 42" off a 1971 SS14. 



    Proud to be Deplorable

We did one on a 46" deck. It is a bit of a bugger, but I think we had to use heat, a big hammer and one of those under-bearing puller plates. Wish I had done a thread on it, memory is failing on this one.
