Pull the bearing if needed to see the brand and part # on it. It could be a common bearing your Local Auto Parts Store will have. Most of all your local bearing supply house should have it or run a search on the info and sears.com will probably stock it and ship it (check the link below).

Hopefully removing and replacing w/n the question vs finding the bearing?? Send a close picture of the task with the entire shaft in the working area showing. I feel you will get some tips if needed.

That is my problem, I can't get the bear out? do I have to pull the whole shaft out?

Searspartsdirect.com has an "exploded" view.

987 is made by Gardenway/Troybilt.
