    I'm not going to be abusing. It will only be for mowing my large yard.

    What is the best way to get the drive wheel bearings out?

    Well I got all the components sanded, treated with ospho, primed and painted today. Here is what it looks like. I used Majic Case Power Yellow and I really like the way it turned out. I coated the under side of the deck and deck shield with Herculiner.

    Take a look and see what y'all think.

    I order my new engine Friday so I should start to put things back together this week.

    I have a bunch of decals, new spindles and bearings on the way.

    It looks great, I like the use of the Herculiner, good idea. Just wondering, are you tracking your time and cost ?

    Yes. 8 hours so far and total parts including mower, paint, new engine, all belts, spindles, blades, all bearings and a few miscellaneous items total $1400.

    These are keys that wear in transmission and hard to see wear.
