Hello all  . So one of the blade spindles on my old 165 is on its way out as i can hear it and as it warms up while mowing after a while is makes the engine rpms drop as im thinking it working harder to spin .

So ilooked to see how much new spindles cost and yeah not cheap at 100 bucks each .

 So i also have a STX38 which is dead it will not start so im thinking can i swap decks over as they are 38 inch decks i was hoping some one out there might know ifis is a yes or no  to swap

I am not sure but I would think you would have deck hanger issues an deck drive belt issues. I would try just replacing the bearings.
