1110 deck issues

I have an old cub that has some issues. My deck is very noisy, and the motor is having problems in tall grass like there is a-lot of resistance coming from the deck. When I start mowing, I usually am able to start the pto once the motor is warmed up without a problem, but just yesterday I killed it 3 times trying to engage the pto. I imagine the deck probably needs new bearings. So I guess what I need to know where do I start? Where are the bearings? Do I need to replace the pulleys? I have never even had this deck off the 🚜, so I really don't know much about it.

    Bearings are in the spindle housing

    Where is the spindle located? And also, I was spinning the deck by hand, and it feels smooth, no resistance at all, so what gives?

    The blades are mounted to the spindle shafts under the deck, the pulleys are on the other end of the shaft. You need to remove the deck to service them. Most spindle assemblies can be disassembled and the bearings replaced but some require a complete assembly. First thing though, raise the machine and look at the underside, the deck may be clogged with grass.

    I figured that out, I removed the cover off the one spindle and the other has no cover. There is no play in either spindle, and everything spins free, so now I am at a loss. I know there is a problem...but with what? When I spin the deck by hand everything seems fine, but when I let the mower do it, its loud as heck...could this just be a combo of a tired motor, and a noisy clutch?

    There is not only bearing in the spindes but in the idler pulleys and the double stacked drive pulley. Bearing the idler pulleys are not replaceable except as a whole pulley. Even a single rough spot in one these ball bearing is enough to cause problems. I have seen belts to snap because of this especially there is a very heavy belt load.

    Disregard my above post, it's been a very bad day, and I was very angry when I posted my last post.
    Anyway I guess my next step would be to drop the deck, remove the belt and see exactly what pulley is making all the racket. I couldn't find any play anywhere, but that could change after I drop the deck. Is there anything I need to know about dropping the deck? It looks pretty easy, but I have never done it before.

    Don't feel like your by yourself Its been a rough week here too. Three struck on electric PTO clutches and a vendor claims to have shipped my parts on time, UPS has no recorded of them being pickup, Then the vendor appears to refuse to return my phone calls. And to top it off another struck PTO clutch came in this afternoon. OH well time to make a puller. Either that or cut the clutches off.

    Just an update. I dropped the deck today to see what was up, and it looks like it's gonna be an expensive fix. As soon as I got the belt off, things became quite clear. The double pulley has a little play, and is making a metal on metal noise. The idler pulley and the right side spindle are both smooth and quiet, with no side to side play. The left side spindle has humongous play, and is very noisy.
    Is there anyplace cheaper then parts tree? They want $180 for the double pulley, and $240 for the spindle assembly. How hard would it be to just replace the bearings in the double pulley?

    Well, still haven't fixed the deck, I figured I'll put it off till next spring. I did however fix another big issue today. Lately I've noticed that the old girl has been harder to start, and under powered. Then I tried to mow last week, and she wouldn't start...I killed the battery. Well after charging the battery...it still wouldn't start, So I pulled the spark plug, and it was dry. So I figured the fuel pump was out, I have been meaning to change the fuel pump for a while, because the inlet on the fuel pump housing was broke off, and a plastic elbow was jbwelded in its place. I already had a new Briggs&Stratton fuel pump installation kit sitting on the shelf. So I installed the new fuel pump, the problem turned out to be the rotten vacuum hose was cracked and leaking. So I replaced the hose with the hose provided in the kit. Now she starts right up, and is ready to rock! And when I went to engage the pto, to my amazement...she didn't die! The old girl starts better, and runs way better. Now I just have to fix the deck next spring.
