I recently receive a 1968 110 with an 8 hp Kholer. Everything seems to work fine but when the deck is engaged it is really noisy. I have tried to find pulleys for the deck on ebay and other sites. I was wondering if any one could point me in the right direction?

Welcome to the forum. The belt tensioner pulley should be fairly common. The spindles have replaceable bearings. The double sheave pulley was a little tougher. Not sure if Deere carries it or not. I was able to find a bearing for it and replace just the bearing.

I have attached two diagrams from JDParts.  The second one MP569 shows the break down of the spindles which are rebuildable.  I suspect the noise is from spindle bearings #4 (x2) in the pics.  Deere part for the complete spindle is AM30302 and a quick search shows they are available on Amazon, Ebay, and other places.

I just went through my 39 deck not long ago. The double stack pulley is still available. I opted to buy a new spindle assembly (expensive I know) and plan on replacing the bearings on the one I replaced and keep as a spare. My is extremely quiet with new idlers and the like.

Noise usually comes from bad bearings, not the pulleys.

Thanks for the quick replies. Has anyone had luck with getting the spindles apart to rebuild them? Should I replace the pulleys while I have it all apart? I added the only picture of the tractor I have at this time. It seems to be a nice tractor.

They are not hard to disassemble but not a pleasant experience.  It is easiest done with a press and lots of PB Blaster in my experience.

I have not attempted to take one apart yet since I don't have a press. As for the pulley, if there is nothing wrong with the pulley itself, just replace the bearing if you can. If I remember correctly the pulley bearing assembly was about 11 bucks from mother deere, so I opted to just replace the whole thing. The new replacements will require a bushing to ride on though.

When I rebuild the spindles on the 314 I owned for a while (the two outer spindles are the same as the three in your deck), I used the Deere part number to x-ref them and picked up replacements at the local Napa store.  IIRC they were about $7 per bearing.  Part number is JD9296 and a quick google search will yield cheaper options than "ford4wd08" offered.  

 

 

Here is a Timken option:

 For years people did this kind of work with zero nice tools just a hammer and punch .     It can be done just as well even without a press .    You can do it yourself no problem go slow and check the work as you go .
