They are the only shiny part on the blade!!
Not perfect but close enough. 馃槈
Nice work, these should work great on your blade, time well spent.

Well I removed the steering gearbox a week or so ago. Disassembled and cleaned it, did a little sanding on the column and painted it. I snuck out to the barn today and reassembled and reinstalled it into the 110. I鈥檝e got the tie rod ends snugged up and adjusted the toe up front. I managed to get about 99% of the slop out of the steering. There鈥檚 one spot when steering to the left that is a little snug, not hard or tight, just not as free as the rest of the steering motion. Not sure why.
I did not buy the鈥漸pgrade鈥 kit from eBay, maybe at another time.

So... I own 2 model 42 blades, but that is a story for another time. I have been tinkering with them on and off for the past few weeks, in between working on the 鈥渉oney must do鈥 list for our daughters graduation open house. I have gotten all of the joints and pivot points moving freely by hand now, but I needed 5 of the brass bushings for the lift arms which are NLA. My local Deere dealer had none but gave me phone numbers to 5 or 6 dealers across the country that showed some in stock. So I started calling, the first 3 dealers that I called had 1 or 2 each. The 4th dealer much to my surprise, had 5, exactly the number that I needed. So... for $10.16 I got 5 bushings mailed to me from Iowa. 馃榿
They come in packages of 2, so I received 2 unopened packs and 1 opened pack with a single bushing in it.

Two of the packages are just a printed piece of paper stapled in the plastic bag. I believe these have been laying on a shelf since the 60s. The other package is printed on the plastic bag so I鈥檓 thinking it鈥檚 probably from the 70s??
Either way, I think the packages are cool, notice they all have the 4 legged deer, so I will open them neatly and probably keep the packages.

Well I haven鈥檛 touched the 110 in a couple of months, but today when I got home from work while letting the grass dry before mowing, I decided to drop the transaxle to replace the brake shaft seal. I had purchased one from the local dealer 4 or 5 months ago. The seal that they sold to me is a AR90860 and that is what the parts diagram shows it to be, however, it is not. The shaft on the tractor is 1鈥 and the new seal is 3/4鈥 ID. 馃
Anyone have some words of wisdom??

I don鈥檛 know Chaser. I know mine is a 1鈥 or within thousandths and the new one is 3/4鈥. I was hoping someone would have been down this road already and would have the info that I need.

I have a 3 speed and 4 speed transmission out in the garage on the rack. I'll try and take a few minutes to compare them both sometime over the weekend for you. I don't remember them being two different sizes though.

According to my parts catalog, both style transmissions take the same brake drum oil seal. The part number is M 40676 and is listed as a 1-1/2" O.D. oil seal.

Well elfman鈥檚 part number is correct. I purchased one from my dealer and proceeded to install. I have a socket that fits nicely over the shaft and is the perfect diameter for the seal, however, it is just a bit short and bottoms out on the shaft right when it contacts the seal. So I thought 鈥淚 will just carefully tap the seal in with a fat punch.鈥 That seal is a very tight fit and I managed to ruin it. 馃槨
So back to the dealer I will go. 馃様

Sounds like you need a deep socket my friend. 馃榿
