Recheck your model info. Sears parts site says that's a 44" rotary mower.
What part of the assembly is actually broken? The mandrel inside, the bearings, or the part that houses the mandrel and bolts to the deck? Maybe the assembly is discontinued but you can still get the individual parts that make it up. Otherwise what do you think about taking it in to a machine shop?

Smile Old 44 inch mower

Hi
You are correct. The part that is broken is the outer housing that contains the mandrel and bearings. It has been hit by obsticles a few times over the years and the housing is now broken and wobbles.

Unhappy 44 inch deck

Hi
No, I have not been able to find the part I have been looking for about a year on the net. I guess I will have to pull it and try to get the old one fixed. I was hoping someone knew of a place that has those old parts.

46 in mandrel

I have a 46 inch deck and replace them every two years, you can find sets on Ebay or M&D mower.

ebay

Thanks. I will try the M&D mowers. All the sets on ebay so far have not been compatible, I am told the deck is too old.

Your unit was built by American Yard Products. There may be an after market company such as Oregon Products that may have parts that you can obtain to rebuild that part as it was sold as an assembly. Many lawn mower repair shops can help with this and the aftermarket parts to rebuild your unit. American Yard Products makes Poulon, Husqvarna, Frigidaire, and many others for the mass merchant. The part numbers will start out with different prefix numbers but the last 6 or 7 will be the same.
