For most effective results, a lawn mower deck should have a pitch, or height difference of 1/8-inch to 1/2-inch between the front of the deck to the back of the deck. Naturally, this makes the sweet spot about 1/4-inch of pitch, depending on the mower model.
Bearing lubrication is vital for preserving the performance and lifespan of rolling element bearings. Lubrication helps separate moving parts relative to one another, such as rollers and raceways or balls, to prevent wear and tear and friction.
Oils are the preferred lubricant in open bearing designs or when low torque or high speeds are the priority during bearing operation. “This is due to the relatively lower viscosities as compared to greases. Oil lubrication allows for more efficient movement of the ball through the lubricant, as compared to greases.”
For lubricating the release bearing, Eaton Fuller recommends a lithium-base high-temperature grease that meets the NLGI Grade 1 or 2 specification. 3. Wipe the dirt away from the grease fitting.
Replacing the Mower Deck
Slide the deck under the machine and push it rearward to replace the belt on the engine pulley. Then move the deck forward until it`s in position to lift the back end and re-hang it on the rear support bracket.
Removal of the deck would be extremely helpful when replacing any belt on the lawn mower. On some models you may not have to for the two lower belts, but it would still make the replacement procedure quicker and easier.
A mower deck spindle is a component of a lawnmower that connects the blade to the deck of the mower. The spindle has two bearings that allow the blade to spin, and a pulley that drives the blade via a belt.
When deck is raised, set desired height with the deck height control dial, then lower deck with the raise / lower switch.
