Hopefully someone has done this before and give me a few tips. Everything is off except the two mandrills. I have removed the blades, and top pulleys and keys. They spin free, but the bearings sound dry, and one has some slight play. If not too expensive I would like to replace all 4. We do have a Purvis Bearing shop locally. I studied the manual, but still not completely sure how to remove these.

I never had to tear into my spindles, you need the other KATT for that one.

Made a little progress, had trouble getting the C clips off, watched a youtube https://www.youtube....h?v=Ewu4-oU8U6k
NOT DOING THAT!  :mad2:  So I drilled a hole in one side to use my C Clip pliers to pull out one edge so to get a screw driver behind it and pry it off. Next is to remove the lower bearings.

Success! You don't want to know how many 3/32 drill bits I destroyed drilling those holes, but once through removal was easy. I checked the availability of 4 (204RR6) bearings and they seem readily available. I am also going to get 4 proper C-Clips. I'm done for the day. Went way over my normal quota of only doing one thing at a time. KATT will probably come along and have a better method, but I Got-r-done.
PS, I broke my vice when doing Old Girl's deck bearings, and I could have uses it for these, so I think I'll be getting a new vice before assembly.

Don't think we did our spindles either. Glad you got it done!

I look at it this way. If I am tearing it all the way down, why not replace the 27 year old bearings, PS the grease in there was hard.

Larry I'm sure there's a tool for those butterfly snap rings . Maybe some members who do transmission work or something similar would know .

Yea, I tried several small screwdrivers, I couldn't get behind the clip to pry it up. Drilling the hole allowed me to use one side of the snap ring pliers to pry the clip out and then get behind it with the small screwdriver and pry it up. I'll be replacing the bearings, and snap rings.

Hey I hear ya ingenuity. If it don't work make it better. I've never honestly seen tools made for it in either a heavy equipment shop or many other shops my family has worked...it's just a cheap disposable method vs tiny bit more expensive clips that add up? ...I'm guessing here lol. I do the same in the ways of replacing them with snap rings.

I don't think I'll be adding zerks to these. Housing is too thick. I'll just use high quality Timken bearings and pack to 60% with high quality grease. Should last another 30 years!
