Craftsman GT500, 917.275972 w/26 HP Briggs. I think one of the Quills has started to make noise. Lost a lot of my hearing in Sunny SouthEast Asia so will have to wait for my brother to wander by and check it out.
THe machine is 9 years old and I mow 4 acres, so if I don't need it now, probably will in the future.
Quill part # 137152, Parts List also shows "Bearing, Ball Mandrel." # 110485X. Anyone know if it's worth while to replace the bearing or just "bite the bullet" and get the whole unit?
Where's a good place or manufacturer to buy these? Obviously can cross reference that part number and find them all over the web. Thinking that if I order one I'll just get two to save on S&H.
Thoughts, opinions, or observations welcome.
THanks for your time,
