Again, THANK you for ALL the info/links...
The bearings I was able to source locally for $6.00 each and just finished my order on Green Parts for the additional bushings needed to rebuild the idler pulleys / tensioner and a deck belt. Should have the #46 deck rebuild by the end of next week.
While I'm at it and waiting for parts to arrive, since everything will be apart, I'm going to clean it all up and treat it to a couple coats of JD Yellow.
Just can let this deck die as they are getting hard to find in this part of the world. Hard to believe that it's been mowing 2.5 acres for the past 17+ years and other than two spindle bearings and a few belts, it has caused me not ONE bit of trouble. I'll have about $60.00 and my time into a restored #46 OH happy days !
And some say it is just a color... LOL
