While mowing this evening, one of my belts felt the need to self destruct into about 253 little bits of rubber and cord. At least I got the front yeard done. Last week, it was the front caster letting go.... Anyway, I've noticed there's a bit of play in the spindle bearings when I pull the blades off to sharpen them. Now that there's no belt tention on this one spindle, there's really a good amount of play. I've also noticed that the blade blolts get really hot when mowing. I've greased the fittings on the spindles more than enough (for homeowner use) so I'm thinking something is going on in there. Should I attempt to rebuild the current spindles? Or just order the ones from J-Thomas @ $50 each?
