03 Murray Riding mower Spindle Bearing & Blade change Part 1. See Part 2 Here: http://youtu.be/SHPVg5hGAzM
This is a video on how to change your mower spindle bearings. This application applies to many riding mowers, Craftsman riding mowers included.
I chose to change the bearings while the spindles were installed on the deck rather than remove the spindle assembly.
If you try to remove the spindle assembly the spindle bolts will shear off in the spindle assembly, then you either buy a new spindle assembly or drill out the bolts, VERY difficult to do.
Here's some info on manuals and some torques specs from schift32055 one of the viewers to help keep you all safe:
