OK , first photo is the broken bearing , then replaced bearing and the collar that goes over the end of bearing. Took maybe 4 hrs ,with me having only part of a clue what I needed to do.. That time included walking down to FIL getting his gear puller. then figuring out to use . I've always been the helper and he or my BIL was always the one doing the work.. This time neither one was around to help..
Put everything back to gather , was turning the blower by hand and I noticed the broken ujoint on yoke from blower toward tractor...
OH boy what will this cost , called dealer, talking to service manager and he told me it could be covered under warranty because these parts were bought when I bought the tractor .....Hurray yes !!
When my wife came home I was going to a local repair shop to see what the cost my be. No need now.. Made my day!!
