Going thru a bunch of parts and sorting,, I noticed several different types of spindle bearing housings. So I went to the mauals and noticed there are several different part #s for what seem to be the same housing On a 42" tube frame deck.. How I noticed it in the first place was some of the zerks are on the spindle shaft ( on top ) and some are on the housing,, ( meaning you have to grease from the bottom )
Anyone know if they are all the same except for the zerks.???? O ,,, some are made of steel,, and some are more the aluminum, type.
The box on the aluminum ones read------- 1716949 with zerk on housing..
Steel ones no number can be read on them....
