Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
There are no real bearings on the motor, only bushings. They are parts 56E in the diagram. To gain access to them, after the head is off, you will first need to lock down the tension screw 56k, then remove the front clamp while holding the lower part of the shaft. This will free the shaft from the mount. You can then proceed with replacing the two 56E bushings.
Hello, all of the info that I have to go from is what you sent. The 1999 42 AT is a tiller.
So you did not tell me if you still need my help or not.
