Atco HY restoration

I am currently restoring an Atco HY and need to completely strip down the rear roller in order to get to the pawl mechanism. I am stuck and have not been able to remove the spherical bornze bearing at one end of the main shaft. It looks as though a collar on the end of the shaft should unscrew. I have been unable to move it at all. Any advice? There is a hole on the circuference of the smaller diameter of the bronze bearing. Does this contain a grubscrew?

Any advice you can give me will be very much appreciated.

Many thanks.

Ian Tabernacle.

I've restored an HY but the

I've restored an HY but the one part that I did not have to take apart was the rear roller, however this parts list from the Club's Technical Help section may give you a clue.

EDIT

Seems to be a problem with that link, but if you go to the Mower Operating Manual section of Technical Help you should be able to access it .

With regards to link not

With regards to link not working, I checked and it seems to have been caused by the erroneous addition of a blank space at the end.

When our CMS saves the page, this blank is transposed into some spurious characters which are added to the link and then make it ineffective.

I have edited the link in the original posting and it should now work.

It's the first time I have come across this particular error in eight years since the we started using this system for the site.

As far as I know, once the bearing bracket (5013 or 5014 on the parts list) is removed the bearing (5191/5192) shells should just slide off. It's possible, I guess, that heavy scoring on the shaft or compacted debris between the bearing and shaft make this very difficult.

The hole you refer to should be for oiling.
