Clean that hardware...................

This is simply "general" info:

When putting stuff back together, I like to make sure the threads on bolts/screws etc are clean - dirty fasteners are not the most pleasant things to work with. The handiest tool I have found for that is a small bench grinder with a wire wheel - just remember those safety glasses!

And, I also try to make sure I put some "Never-Seize" on the bolts before re-assembly (unless the manual states otherwise, or LocTite is required instead) so that next time, disassembly hopefully won't be too frustrating. I wouldn't say that fasteners treated with the stuff NEVER sieze, but it does help!

Our mower came from the dealer with never sieze on the spindle bolts.
ALWAYS USE IT (never sieze) WHEN PUTTING PULLEYS ON ENGINE SHAFTS We have had several engines in the past with frozen pulleys, it ain't fun, you have to be very careful on most pulleys with a gear puller--or you'll warp them bad.

I thought WD-40 was for washing parts off !
I always try to carry a can of it. You drop a bolt or nut in the dirt, grab the WD-40 and wash it off. I save the PB Blaster for the tough jobs.
Quality Is Good !
