So I was trying to mow the lawn last weekend and my mower deck started making a lot of noise. Shut her down looked at the deck and seen my middle blade was about 1/2 inch lower then the others. So I ripped the deck off started to tear into it. Lost the bottom bearing and when I took it all apart to survea the damage I found that the ball bearings tried to go through the bottom of the housing so I ordered a housing and 2new bearings. Almost 60 bucks worth of parts. I called all the local parts stores/implements about the bearings not one available one the Jackson county area what a crock lol. But the good news I should get my simplicity over priced parts by Wednesday day. And maybe if I don't get mad I'll take some pics of the new parts

Best part about this is I got to clean the deck inside and out. And I found I will need to do a little weld job on a few small unused hole that fill the inside of the guards wit h clippings and that's not cool.

This is the culprit
