Deck pulleys - removal and pulley style

The post Hydriv quoted regarding a broken spindle reminded me to ask this.

I was parting a deck to send that gentleman a spindle assembly and it came apart easier than any I've done. And, I chose the least attractive deck I have in stock to part, surface rust, etc.

But, it had a pulley type I've only seen on a few: the pulley hub has a groove around it that accepts a bearing separator. This makes pulling them much easier. Apparently the previous owner had replaced the bearings fairly recently, as the pulleys slid right off with the puller/splitter arrangement.

Now my question (finally), when did Case use these pulleys? and, why oh why did they stop?!!!

The original Case pulleys did not have the groove and the early Ingersoll pulleys did not either. The Ingersoll supplied replacements have the groove.
Folks that use never-seize on the spindles seldom need a puller to remove the pulleys.

Ah, that explains why this sorry lookin' deck was so good mechanically. Looks like bearings, pulleys etc are replacements.
I guess you won't be sending those parts out. :sidelaugh:

You'll have to pick one of the other decks that look a bit better but still have OEM pulleys etc in place. :thumbsup:
Nah, he gets the good ones. But I'll still have one outer and the center set.
