Idler pulley on my Woods mower separated from the bearing. Solution? Is it a press fit? I can put it back in by hand. Parts do not look damaged

Hmmm, does Hamilton Bob have any I wonder.

If it presses in by hand, can you stake it in place like a rear main seal

Measure the bearing shaft hole diameter and the bearing od diameter in the pulley. Auto parts store or machine supply store for replacement - press in bearing.

Also check the bearing for part number.
