Kenneth Martin: You can never use too much Grease LOL!
Kyocera234: I just replaced these bushings on my 93 mtd with some bushings I bought from ebay, they fit OK but did seem to have a bit more play, also the material seems to be a little different than the original bushings. is there a seller you recommend for these plastic parts? The front wheel bushings seem to fit fine, it was just the steering ones that seems to have a little bit of play.
fnaguitarplayer9: haha yeah that would have been better for me haha Might be doing another video like this soon. thanks for watching!
fnaguitarplayer9: no, that wasn't me, the only transaxle video i have is replacing all the bearings in it. thanks for watching!!!
fnaguitarplayer9: yeah that should work fine, just don't over bend because the shaft itself could bow causing the wheel to wobble. thanks for watching!!!
MCRideout: Didn't you make a video about putting washers on axles in a transaxle so it acts like a locked rear end? I can't find it...
fnaguitarplayer9: You should be able to find them at tulsa engine warehouse, i tried looking up your mower but all i can find is a owners manual with no parts diagrams, some mowers will have a actual ball bearing pressed into the rim, which is much better, others will have a brass or steel flange bearing that presses in, not as good a ball bearing but better than the plastic ones. You may have to email tulsa to find out, they have a live chat, and they can find just about anything for you. thanks for watching!
John Dough: Where do you find those bushings? I have a craftsman lawn tractor and I did take the spindle apart, tire too of course, and I found plastic bushings that were eaten up. The wheel shaft didn't have any plastic bushings just the upright spindle I didn't know if they disintegrated or they just don't use them. By the way it's a yz4500 lawn tractor. 26 hp 54" cut.
Thanks in advance....
fnaguitarplayer9: no problem! hahahaha i hear ya! If there's a way to get hurt i'll find it haha thanks for watching!!!
J Hunt (Hunt Tribe Films): Thanks for the video. When u busted your knuckles, I knew we were kindred spirits.
fnaguitarplayer9: haha yeah! thanks for watching!!!
fnaguitarplayer9: no problem! thanks for watching!!!
TheseTangledWebs: thanks a lot
fnaguitarplayer9: haha that sucks haha have to grind it off and get new front axles. thanks for watching!!!
fnaguitarplayer9: @1899lpv hahah yeah i just realized that LOL "more than enough is better than not enough" LOL glad it was educational. I hope to do alot more videos like this. I'm not at my garage all the time, wish i was, i'd probably live in it haha thanks!
1899lpv: I started to laugh when you said @ 4:19 "I'm using way too much grease" while dipping your finger in the can...Very educational for someone who doesn't know mechanics. Thumbs up !!!!
fnaguitarplayer9: @MrMoodyMusic no problem. thanks for watching
Ricky Moody: Thanks !
fnaguitarplayer9: @rebelsoutherner thanks. i'll put that on a annotation, now that i think about that makes sense, thats not a bearing surface. And like i said on the video, i used WAY to much grease hahahhaaha
Ryan Stratemann: Future reference, when you put those bushings in the wheels you dont need to put grease on the inside of the wheel, just the inside of the bushing. Nice video.
