    The ones with only a snap ring with no set screws tend to wobble and enlarge the hole. I shim them with a piece of steel soup can.

    When they start to get wobbly I cut a flat strip from a soup can that will wrap around the shaft and ream the hole in the pulley with Emery paper on a dowel till I can press fit the pulley onto the shaft. Must be tight or will wear out the sleeve. Don't use aluminium can.

    Ok, the mower is all put back together now. Too dark to mow when I got done, but did take it for a test drive and all seems normal. Strangest thing was, while putting a new drive belt on it, I discovered the crankshaft pulley bolt was missing! Who knows how long that had been going on, fortunately I had a spare in my box o' bolts. Thanks so much for everyone's advice!

    Thanks. That new grease sure offers more resistance to the gears than the worn out bentonite did. Couldn't hardly push it forward or backwards in neutral. After a test drive it loosened up a bit.
