Craftsman II Model 917255913
The 2 pieces on the photo came from one wheel.
The piece that is not chewed up came from the inside
as it mounts on the spindle and is the wheel bearing (part #9040H) according to the manual.
The other piece came from the outside and needs to be replaced.
My question is: are they the same, on the other wheel I cannot remove it from the wheel to compare.
Looks like two halves but the parts layout does not indicate that.

Thanks

I have a new 9040H in my hand, and like yours on the left it looks like a 2 piece but is actually 1 single piece. They are the same as a Murray 491334. Here are some aftermarket part numbers:

MURRAY 91334
OREGON 45-043
PRIME LINE 7-04176
STENS 225-029
SUNBELT B1SB7258
ROTARY 7258

They list retail for $3-5.50 each depending on brand.

I did notice the inside size is different, never seen that before. Did it come a part some how ?
The ones I've replaced didn't--they were solid--just had that line around it,and yes they are the same--inside and outside.Takes four to do both wheels.:trink40:

Thanks all,

I was not concerned that each unit is one piece but that the 2 halves (inside and out) are the same part. Strange how that outside piece got warned out like that.

They are somewhat different and that's why I asked the question, but the inside fits on the outside of the wheel and they don't list another part for the ouside so looks like I'll be ordering the same.

Those bushings are also available in a ball bearing with the same outer shape. Our local Car Quest had them on the shelf in both styles. Bushing was under $7.00, bearing versions were about $10.00 each. My Bolens came with the bearing version which is what I used for replacement.

:ditto:--I have seen ball bearings for mini-bikes and go-karts with the same 1-3/8" O.D. and 3/4" I.D ,they should fit ..I've seen those bearings at Lowes in the hardware aisle in the "drawers"...about 8 bucks each..

When the bearing fails you are done. It takes a long time for the bushing to wear out. Keep them greased and be sure to push the crud through when greasing.

Quite true. However I prefer to have a bearing as the wear point is the bearing rather than the bushing and spindle. I can replace several bearing sets for the cost and trouble of one spindle. Don't know what the relative replacement interval on each would be but I suspect if bushings were longer lived they would be used more on top end equipment.

Just my thoughts and I could be wrong.
