Spindle Re-build question

I have about 430 hours on my LazerHP (52) and my spindles seem a little noisy. There isn't any side play (With belt off) that I can really feel or see but they just seem like they are "grating" or dry when the mower is engaged.

So, I was going to try and rebuild them this winter. Taking them off and taking the spindle apart doesn't seem to difficult. I do have one question, when putting the spindle back together, how do you hold everything together while you torque the upper nut? In other words, how do you keep everything from spinning?

John

Pin the blade with a short piece of 2x4 against the deck pan.

So do I put the blade on first before I put the top nut on? (Putting it back together)

Put the top nut on and just snug it to hold it together and tighten the blade on then pin it and torque the top nut.
