This is an older restoration from last year, but it was never posted here. I figured I would do so and attach a link to the sticky with the parts info.
This mower deck was in need of a ground up restoration, the bearings were shot, and the deck rough. To start, I needed to remove the spindles, but the pulleys were stuck. I tired to sneak them off with electrolysis, but in the end I had to just cut them off with my grinder.
With those removed, I now had the deck stripped bare. I was able to find the missing top shield on e-bay and armed with these, it was time to sandblast the deck. Once blasted, any dents and heavy rust pitting that would show was filled with body filler and primed.
