Anyone have bearing and seal numbers to replace all the bearings and seals in a BGB.  I have one apart and going to replace the bearing and seals in it while it is out and apart.

Are all BGB's the same? I have 2 1974ish 416 shuttles with BGB's and wondering if that is the same as the earlier models?

I have atleast three different BGBs with my Simplicitys that are 1971 and earlier. I think the one in my Snapper is different too. I think the "varidrive" made a difference on some. Check the Manuals Section. Good Luck, Rick

ya mine would be BGB from the 700 series or the 7000 series simplicity.    I was hoping someone had rebuilt one already and had current bearing and seal numbers.

here is the problem bearing that caused my lock up.  I at 1st thought is was a solid metal trust type bearing, just used to keep alignment.  till I looked that the BGB diagram / parts blow up.  it is a needle bearing and it seized up.

 

it is the smaller one on the right side of the shaft.

 

2nd picture shows the matching bearing from the other location in the BGB housing.  I would have missed it if it was not for the parts blow up.

If I were you I would put some medium strength locktite on the capscrew #14. Since they are right hand thread and the shaft turns CW they sometimes back out and tear up the cross shaft.
