    I've got a problem with my mower... It's nothing big it's a Murray Lows type or something... and It's got like a 36-40 inch deck . It's a rider.... My mowebr deck were the Right side pulley that connects to the blade is loose. Like i can move that shaft around as if the bearings are shot... and a lil ball poped out when i noticed the problem I was wondering how hard that would be to fix myself were i'd need to pick up the bearings and how much it may be to have it fixed by a mower repair place... I need help quick guys if yall would get back with me i've got to cut a few yards this weekend.... thanks a bunch for any comments

    As the third thread down from the top says model numbers would have been nice, But I will take a stab anyway.
    Most of these cheapo tractors you replace the whole spindle housing assembly (Murray, MTD, AYP) and call it a day. They range anywhere from 30.00 to 100.00, I charge 1/2 hr to replace one at 50.00 hr. There is really nothing to it for the do it your-selfer, Just unbolt the old one and install the new one.
