The 2640 uses a 4 cylinder engine with 2 balance shafts. The bearings the shafts run in should be replaced. Replacement requires removing the balance shafts. Not replacing the balance shaft bearings can be the reason for low oil pressure after a rebuid and can lead to major block damage when worn bearings spin in the block.

Can the bearings for the balance shafts be done in frame or does it require a complete removal?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Can't isn't a good word but replacing balancer brgs with engine on an engine stand would be a lot easier IE the rear brgs would be a booger to replace with engine in the tractor.

You "Can't" get the rear bearing out while it's in the tractor...also check your clean air connections ,if it is drawing dirty air in on the clean side it will break all the top rings,,quickly,,I use ether and spray around the pipes to check them, if you have a leak the rpm's will pick up.
