Bobo & All,
Currently replacing a lot of items due to age and bearing failures (no grease zerks).
Front PTO coil (wiring age, cracked broken insulation next to coil)
Front PTO bearing
Mule drive pulley bearings (both)
46" mower spindle bearings all 6 in the 3 spindles
right side blade spindle bearing housing - wobbled out shape (whole bears and shaft moving)
The hours maybe more because the original hour meter failed at 1075 hours and I did not catch it for a long time, new meter has just over 400 hours in three years, did not keep a log ( now I do on the computer - spreadsheet, faster to look up then going though years paper work ) even for the vehicles now so I can see if maintenance is needed (mileage drop off or how far on a set tires went etc)
I do rotate through six pre-filters on the air filter due what it sucks up from below every time I do anything during the spring, summer, and fall ( you would think that JD would have designed to have air sucked in from top of machines after owners experiences ) freshly cleaned ( vacuum the dirt, dog wood seeds, dandelion seeds, etc off, then washed with dawn dish soap, air dried, ready for a quick oil and placement before going out for a day or weekends use.
