Changing the Spindle Bearings On Your Lawn Mower Deck

August 23, 2012

When you turn on your lawnmower and engage the mower deck, at some point you may hear a squealing sound. This sound is most likely the sound of the spindle bearings seizing up. The spindle bearings are the bearings that allow the decks pulleys to spin. The process for changing spindle bearings is straightforward and will only take a short while to complete. However, before you can change the bearings, you must have knowledge of how to remove your mower deck from your lawn tractor since this process is different for virtually every mower brand and model.

Things you will need:

Wooden Blocks

Wrench Set

Hole Punch

Mallet

Rags

First place wooden blocks on either side of the mower deck and then lower the deck onto the blocks. Disconnect the rods that hold the deck onto the bottom of the lawn tractor by removing the cotter pins. Pull the deck belt off the engine pulley on the motor and then slide the deck out from under the lawn tractor. This is a general process; your model might differ slightly. Take a picture or draw a diagram of how the belts route around the pulleys. This will help you when you go to put the deck back onto the lawn tractor. Once you have a record of the belt routing, pull the belt off the pulley system. Spin each pulley and listen for squeaking, squealing or grinding. There is no need to change a bearing that is not defective. Only change bearings that make noise.

Next remove the bolt that secures the pulley to the spindle shaft with a ratchet. If the bolt spins with the spindle shaft, wedge a piece of wood between the mower deck and the mower blade. This will prevent the shaft from spinning. Place a hole punch against the bearing casing and tap on the punch with a mallet to drive the shaft down and out of the mower deck. In most cases, you will locate an upper and lower bearing. Even if only one is bad, drive out both and replace them. Remove dirt, debris and grease from the area around the location with a wire brush. Place the new bearings into the spindle. They will only go in slightly. Place the old bearing on top of the new one and tap on the old bearing with the mallet to drive the new bearing into the spindle. Do not tap directly onto the new bearing or you will damage it.

Finally, thread the spindle pulley bolt back into place and tighten it with the wrench. Thread the drive belt around the pulleys and then reattach the mower deck to the lawn tractor. Once you have safely completed the steps above you are ready to get back to cutting grass!

How to Change Your Oil On A Walk Behind Mower

August 6, 2012

How to Change Your Oil On A Walk Behind Mower

Changing the oil regulary in your walk behind mower will help it run more efficiently and extend its life. Check your owners manual for the recommended oil change interval. The tools you will need to change your oil on a walk behind mower are : a drop cloth, work gloves, a piece of heavy duty plastic, container for used oil and of course the new oil.

The first thing to do is find a well ventilated work area. If your working in a garage, open the door for maxuim air circulation. Use the drop cloth to protect your floor from any spills. To get started you need to remove the grass catcher and brush off any grass clippings. Once you have done that you should start the mower and let the engine run about a minute. The oil will drain more quickly when its warm. When you shut off the engine, disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug to prevent the engine from accidently starting and its safe to work on. Since you will have to tip the mower on its side to drain the oil you should plug the gas tank. To do that, you will use the piece of heavy duty plastic to cover up the inlet then secure the gas cap back on tight. This should keep the fuel in the tank when you tip the mower over.

The oil keeps the engine lubricated and working properly. It should be changed after every season. To remove the oil you should have an oil pan, for the old oil, and some fresh oil to put back in. First you should remove the oil cap and dipstick. Tip the mower on its side to remove the old oil and empty the oil into an oil pan. Be careful to keep the oil off of the carburetor and gas tank. Always tip the mower either spark plug side up or dipstick side down. If you tip the mower incorrectly you can get fuel on the air filter and if this occurs the engine cant breather properly and will run rough or not start at all.

Now its time to add the new oil. Use only the oil type thats recommended by the manufacturer and do not overfil the crankcase. Too much oil causes problems when the engine is running so add the oil slowly and in small increments and check with the dip stick several times. This will insure that you’ve added the correct amount without overfilling. When you have the completed these steps safely and properly it will be time to get your engine running and cutting that grass.
