Absolutely correct.Your post is going to make someone very happy someday when they run into this. Maybe me because the neighbor across the street has one of these.
That was my first thought when I opended the box. I did flip it, but it's a no-go. I mean it MIGHT work, but it would self-distruct pretty wuickly because the bearing would be exposed and all kinds of crud would get in there and disintegrate the assembly sooner or later. Didn't want that, so I returned and went on the hunt for the correct part.I can't tell from the picture or the parts drawing, but is it possible to assemble the spindle from the opposite end? Might sound like a dumb question that I wouldn't likely ask if I had both styles to look at in detail. Could it be assembled wrong?
Deere unit was $98. I bought a 3pk thru Amazon for about the same price. Was going to replace all 3, but decided to keep the other 2 in reserve. I will monitor performance of this unit. With luck, it'll last for years, (and I will have a couple spares for when the others give up the ghost).What did each spindle assembly cost you?
