    Sealed bearings on a mower hub?

    OK thanks. I'll just put the new bearings in with the seals intact. I'm just familiar with old equipment I guess, kinda like me:>)

    Sealed bearings on a mower hub?

    Hi - Got a older commercial walk behind here with 1 blade hub that's pretty noisy. Thought the bearings are dry so I went looking for a grease fitting on the hub, but there isn't one. Took apart the the hub and the bearings are sealed on both sides. I've rebuilt a few hubs in the past, including...

    QA-42 driveshaft issues?

    OK thanks for the advice. I have a parts washer with kero in it, I'll drop it in there for a few days. We'll see if that frees it up. If not I'll try the vinegar. In the meantime I pulled a functional driveshaft off of another QA I had sitting around so I got the snow cub up and ready for the...

    Engine swap from a narrow frame to wide frame

    Hey Kenny, Scott and Mike - I appreciate the advice. I don't want to get into a situation where In have to cobble things together. If it was a straight conversion I'd do it but you guys pointed out some things I didn't consider. So a rebuild of the the 1450 motor is the best idea but I'll have...

    Engine swap from a narrow frame to wide frame

    Hi All, Been a long while since I've been working on my Cubs but time has finally come to get some work done. I have a 147 with a good motor and a 1450 with a weak motor. I'd like to swap motors and put the good motor in the 1450 which is all set up for winter with a blower and cab. I know the...
