I have a 10323 self propelled mower that i am referbing.

I took all the stale grease out of the transmission and re assembled it with new grease. after i put it together, i noticed that there is quite a bit of slop in the pulley. I pulled things back apart, seems like the gears will only go in one way, so..... That leaves the bearing that is on the pinion gear.

So, are these things supposed to have that much slop, or is it time to punch it out and replace it. While apart, i did inspect it and noticed it did feel smooth when rotated.

That bearing should not have any play. Time to replace, as it is the only support for the shaft that holds the belt pulley.

Thanks for the information guys. I checked, the spacer is there, i think the bearing is toast. I will replace it this winter....
