the mower was bought march or april of last year. The spindels are the ones with grease fittings but the problem is that I think they were not greased enough and the warranty was only one year. Motor has a two year warr. I seem to not be able to get the pulley's off it so I can check the barrings and shafts for wear. Both spindles move and cause vibration. I did bend the blade brake pully trying to use a three jaw puller so now I at least have to buy a pulley.
The reason I'm asking around is to not have to get out the torch and cut it in half to get it off. I'd rather replace barrings and maybe a shaft and pulley then the whole thing.
