    Nothing wrong with that, that's all that counts is that it holds up.

    Those aluminum housings were not really designed to be serviceable, you can press the bearings out, but they are a pain.
    If there is no indication that they have rusted, just run them a while and recheck them... KennyV

    Re: Troy Bilt Deck Spindle bearings

    Two ball bearings on a shaft is never a good idea engineering wise unless meticukious care is taken to keep them in alignment.
    Having both of them a light slip fit on the shaft is also bad.
    Running them vertically is also bad
    OTOH it is very cheap and will usually outlive expected service life
