Toro Spindles

I was wondering if anyone knows if Toro has updated /recalled their spindle shafts & pulleys on their mowers.
I've had alot of trouble with them this year and the dealer i use says that they had a bunch of bad shafts that came from the factory.
It causes the splines to strip where they are matched up to each other.
Also I noticed that when I ordered a spindle assembly for my 52" the new one has a splined shaft and pulley and the old one i took out didn't (which makes me think that they updated them)

On a seperate note , I found out that Z- master's don't float : (

Put one of mine in a pond today, the grass was wet from light rain and got on some clippings on a steep hill and that was it.
Also found out that the pond is over my head when I bailed off when it hit the water.So I at least got some swimming in too. : )

Only good thing was that the motor never went under
