:oops: I just bought an 808 and in the process of fixing it up I broke the bolt off that holds the mower blade to the spindle. Does anyone know where I can locate one or what will interchange with the original so I can get this baby back on the lawn?

I don't have the parts manual for an 808 but Eastman does. The bolt that holds the blade on a Mod 808 is a common 3/8"X 1" long National Course hex head machine bolt. You should be able to drill the old bolt and use a screw extractor to remove it. I would go to a hardware specialist and get a Grade 8 bolt for this application to reduce chances of future breakage.

I broke off the easy-out in the hole I drilled in the bolt so I need the spindle or the spindle assembly. The mower was left outside for a couple of years and I just bought it and I am trying to get it going. What do you think about welding a threaded section on the spindle and securing it with a nut?

If you can remove the EZ OUT, then you could remove the spindle and take it to a machine shop. They could chuck it in their lathe and bore a new hole that is dead center and tap it for 1/2" National Fine thread. Get the appropriate Grade 8 bolt and drill the blade out for !/2" clearance,

I guess it all depends on what Brian Hildreth tells you regarding price and availability.
