Are these the ones you ordered 2938T45. Those are the ones that I got & they worked great. I use product that I got from work called No Oxide. We use it when assemble equipment. Bolts that have it on them even looking very rusty come apart with no problems. After I use this next winter I will remove some to see how well it holds up.

I used the 2938T18 bronze ones because they are oil impregnated and softer on steel than the harder ones.

I made them ;-) out of stainless hex shaft,the stuff was pre hardened too, made for some tough turning and threading for sure, but I like a challenge LOL.

Is this the 50" deck you found the new blades for?
I use a 42" deck. And I just love it!
I have two 50" decks. But thier so big and heavy, they just wear everything out!

By the way, someone posted a new old stock 42" deck on Maine Craigslist.
But at $950, I don't think it will sell!

Those bolts look nice. I have some spares from the parts frame that I purchased, so I think I have enough for both tractors. There might be a market for those because I do not know of any place to find replacements if needed.

That looks like the way to do it right.

 Yes I have new blades now for all my decks , but Im afraid I'll never find any more for the 50 ? I'll keep looking for alternatives, as I would love a set of mulching blades for it.

Well the pto has been working very well, yesterday I put over an hour on it filling the rows in the huge garden, and yes, I forgot to take pics... I'll get some tonight, with the new heavy ujoints on the pto shaft, it really runs smooth, and I can lift it almost a foot off the ground with it still humming.
My LGT 165 as it sits with out any attachments, is tipping the scales at 1105 lbs. My 200 lbs on it, and the tiller, its dang near 3/4 ton, pretty heavy for the bed of my pickup, me thinks a trailer is definitely in order.

Yep, I sprung for a new trailer last week, Out grew the 4X5. I can't imagine trying to get that in the bed of a PU.
