Recently I cleaned my 38" deck and painted it. A week ago 1 spindle pulley broke off from its center housing (which goes over the shaft). When removing I noticed it is upside down: the 1" or so housing is facing up:'this pulley is under the small cover. The other pulley has the housing on the bottom giving it some offset. Is this normal? When I replaced with new pulley I installed it similar to the other one. First time I mowed I thought deck sounded a bit rough, but, it mowed fine.
Should the pulleys orient different ways - upside down & normal?
