Customer Question
I need to replace...

I need to replace a worn bearing on the hub assembly of a Snapper self Propelled walk behind mower. Can I just replace the bearing or do I need to replace the assembly. It appears to be original equipment so the bearing seems to be permanently attached to the hex bushing.

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make and model of the mower? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Snapper model R21400. It's at least 20 years old.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I think that's it.

Thank you for waiting. Based upon your model numbers, I pulled up a parts diagram of your mower and it does not include your hub assembly.

Technician: Donald, Small Engine Technician replied 11 months ago

Thanks for double checking your model numbers. There is a difference in the R21400 and the P21400.

That's not it Don. I'm looking at the manual. It's the Bearing on the driven Disc thru which the hex drive turns the rubber wheel
Technician: Donald, Small Engine Technician replied 11 months ago

I will check again.

The purpose of the diagram is help ensure you and I are referring to the same bearing.

That's it. Item number 23 has to be replaced. Do I have to get item 25 as well or can I just replace the bearing. What I have seems to be original and the bearing can't be removed.
Technician: Donald, Small Engine Technician replied 11 months ago

Thank you for clarifying. Your bearing can be purchased without you having to purchase your Hub Assembly. The part numbers for your bearing are 707608. It is available.
