    1300 hrs and it's time to replace the spindles. I bought six bearings, and an extra complete spindle for a spare.

    Now how do I get the center pulley off? The other two came right off. Is it threaded? Is the cenrer spindle different?

    Also, the replacement has a threaded top. Will this work, or did I get the wrong one?

    After the center blade bolt has been removed look down in the pulley cavity and if you see a nut, remove it. The spindle should come apart at that point. When you install the new style blade spindle there should be a nut D13055 that holds the spindle bearings in place when the Blade bolt is removed, torque the D13055 Nut to 35 Lb/Ft.
    The center spindle should be the same as the others, I believe someone replaced the center spindle and that is why it is so
    much harder to take apart. We only make the threaded spindle now so you did not get the wrong one.
    Again, the thread is only to keep the bearings in place when the blade bolt is removed.

    If you have any other problems, please let me know
