If the bore where the bearing fits is worn, is it possible to bore & sleeve the housing?

Couldn't find it anywhere for much cheaper either. Eventually, I was talking to a parts guy & he suggested replacing both spindles with something else. We looked thru a book of parts and found one that had the same height cut wise, but mounted to the bottom of the deck instead of the top. Got both spindles for like $50 and drilled 6 holes... The pullies were even the same diameter, so no new belt.
If you could find a unit that had a compatible mount flange, and roughly the same cut hgt, you'd be back in business.
Can't find an online PDF of what I'm talking about, but this google image search has a couple.

Bush Hog has pretty much told me I have to buy a new mower because this part simply isn't made any more. I've considered replacing it with something similar. But this mower has 3 spindles and I really didn't want to replace all 3. Do you think I could get away with just replacing the ruined one with something similar(assuming they had the same height and pulley diameters)?

Yes, even if you have to replace all 3, it will be cheaper than a new mower. And next time, it will be replaceable.
