    The drive v belt tensioner has the same bearings in it, I'm going to replace them and the drive v belt soon. I had replaced the pulleys a while back when I did the 2nd drive V belt change.

    Scag Tiger Cub throwing the deck drive V belt

    Yes they are sealed bearings and there are two of them in each tension idler arm. Scag P/N 48224 which is a 99502H. These bearings are on all Velocity decks and may also be on older decks. These bearings don't turn very much during operation, but in time the balls make deep grooves in the outer...

    Oregon 82-325 Cast Iron Spindle replacement for Scag 46631

    The bearings are not sealed, but the spindle shaft has a seal top and bottom. The bearings (2) are tapered roller bearings with a cup and cone facing each other on the spindle shaft. Grease the Oregon replacement spindle the same as a Scag OEM spindle which is the same as their response.

    Just replaced the L/H pump on my Tiger Cub

    What was supposed to be a fairly easy job turned into a nasty job!!! No matter what I did to attempt to remove the pump drive pulley, I failed to remove the pulley and ended up cutting it off with a die grinder. I have a pit in my garage which makes underside work on machines easier, but this...

    Scag in need of new engine, advice needed.

    Bear in mind that the engine will be shipped with no engine oil. I recommend using dino oil for the first 50 hours then you may use full synthetic. As with every engine repower, there are other things that may need to be addressed, for example, the hydraulic drive belt and idler/tensioner...

    New to me Tiger Cat

    Hi Sonders, There is no doubt that the front weldment is bent back at the right caster. This part is available from Scag but no doubt pricey!!! You can remove this piece and take it to a frame straightening shop, you will need to get the measurements from another 61" Tiger Cat. I have the same...
