Some of them are rebuildable. Depends if those are the originals. The manual and diagram should help out.

I had a spindle on a 1650 (50" deck, same spindle) that the spindle housing was worn where the bearing goes.  It felt like the bearing was bad, but it was fine.  The entire bearing was moving in the bearing race in the spindle.  Tear it down and inspect the spindle housing before ordering parts.  The only replacement at the time was a throw-away spindle assembly.  I wasn't crazy about the replacement, but it did work fine and get me going again.  Good luck!

I'm restoring a 50c deck right now and I took notice today that it has the throw away spindles.  Luckily there in good shape.  If you have the repairable spindles and find that you need new bearings, they have them on fleebay for much cheaper than cub cadet.
