Hi
The axel seals are Timken #472311 $3.75 each at a Bearing store, deck idler spring # C257 at tractor supply if you have one near, if not visit your hardware store, (hint) where the spring hooks into the deck use a 1/4" X 1 1/4" bolt for the anchor, nut and washer on top and bottom of the hole, not high enough to rub belt, kevlar belt only.

only one spring, use a 1/2"X86" Kevlar Belt on your 42" deck, the belt routing is a bit odd, maybe the old belt will tell how, may get a view of the deck layout on sears parts.com but very few parts if any.Jimmy

Hi
Did you figure how to put up the post to hook spring on to (bolt), the length sounds about right, I think the spring is about .090 wire, larger wire stronger spring,(hint) hook spring route belt all but right end and pull, turn and work belt into groove, remove idler bracket and grease bushing good, use Valvoline wheel bearing grease in tube for Japanese cars, pump grease into each spindle until it squirts out top and bottom, the bolt that holds the idler needs to be supported good on bottom and top, belt cover supports the top end, use washers on bolt, when finished installing belt it will seem a bit loose out in the middle, not tight, when finished the spring don't need to be stretched out very much, how good are the spindle bearings, loose or noisy, no seals so will be some grease leak but ok. been mowing with the same set of spindle bearings since 1984 lot of good grease and no water. Removing the hobs can be a real bitch sometimes, may need to soak a lot, simple to take a sharp pick or punch an flip the seals out, look fo a piece of pipe to slide over the axel to push seals in straight, a washer to fit over axel next to seal is good.
Good Luck
Jimmy

spindle bearings seem good and tight. The ftngs took grease and it came out as you described. the tecumseh smokes a little at times but i think i can live with it.
