SOURCE: Need to remove rear wheels to replace tires on MTD riding mower.

most likely rust has taken over
find some liquid wrench or pb blaster and spray the axles liberally and let it penetrate the axles and wheel hubs where the axle goes through.
use a 2x4 and a hammer to tap against the wheel hub to try to move it down the axle then tap in back on to try to free it up as the penetrating oil works in, spin the wheel and tap in different areas of it
the worst case cenario would be to use a torch and heat the axle and hub up and drive it off, but it sounds as though you are moving it some and with some patience they eventually should come off
when you put them back be sure to coat the axle with some grease and do not forget to reinstall the key stock in each wheel, if they have it
the bolt in the center of the axle is all you need to remove and note where the washers came from and where they go back.

hope this helps you some

How to remove rear drive wheels on old MTD 21


Daren Ingold's suggestion works only for the right rear wheel on my 19+ year old MTD Yardman 21" self propelled mower. The ratchet spur on rear left wheel is held on by a bolt in the center of the axle and a spline. Remove the center bolt and washer. Pry the ratchet spur off the spline by using three medium blade screwdrivers wedged between the wheel and the spur gently tapping the three screwdrivers in succession until the spur is half off the spline. It will come off easily after that. Remove the spur, noting direction, and remove the wheel and replace it with one of the front wheels (they're all the same design) if it is in better condition and use the rear wheel for the front. Good luck ever finding a new replacement for this particular wheel. My mower is 19+ years old but runs perfectly otherwise. Stored in dry basement.

I just received a simplicity 3110 electric start mower year 1979. I need to replace the back tire but it's missing the e-clip and I don't know how to get the wheel off. How do I remove the wheel?


well if the clip is missing and the wheel is stuck on then its rusted on and you will damage the wheel and the axle seal if you try and heat it up i just pry the beads off on the mower jack it up and change the tire with the wheel on the mower sounds hard put its not to bad
