These wheels are usually just held on with a Key way, ALOT OF TIME they offer resistance because they are rusted insode the rim and are needing a mallet to hit them from the inside pretty hard.

Turn it as you can usually a lever on the back side of the mower can be pulled out without the brake on to slip the transmission into nuetral. Turn the tire. I have used a small peice of 2x4 as well because a hammer dont fit well. Good luck I will watch this post and search my Diagrams to see if i have this rider tmrw at work.!

    The rear wheels fitted to the Stickman series Rear Axle/Driven gear sprocket assembly are both keyed and and taper fitted to the shafts . The wheel is soft aluminium and the hub can be damaged by too much hammer & drift use. The retention nuts & washers tend to squash the wheel onto the axle threads. I cleaned that area with a vey small dremel tool bit and a scriber. Then applied heat from the outside to the hub, around the axle, with a Bosch heat gun. Feel the inside of the wheel hub axle boss - when you can fell its hot thats enough. While hub is hot. Switch off heat gun & Use Loctite freeze on the shaft only. If that is not available use Penetrene ( Penetrating Oil) on the shaft /wheel hub joint from inside and outside the hub. have patience and use only moderate hammer and drift force on the inner hubs. If you have to use a puller -Do not use one that applies force to the wheel rim. Bruce Ramsay-Victoria Australia

I have a blown tire on the rear I removed the ring and washer that holds it on but it will not come off what can I do to get it off?


If the rear wheel is only pushed onto the a steel shaft, perhaps with a key, you should be able to get it off after giving it a good overnight soaking with PB Blaster. ( A penetrating oil).
Then spin the wheel with one hand and gently tap on the wheel rim with a hammer until it slides off.
It might take 5 - 10 minutes of tapping.
I always grease or oil any shaft, nut, bolt, or any other device that could possible rust in the future to prevent this re-occuring months or years down the road.
God bless your efforts.

I need to remove tire?


You will need Socket wrenches, a big ***** Driver and air valve tool if there is a pneumatic tire involved, two 3"-5/16" bolts w/nuts and washers. I like to tip the chair on its side. and loosen the main shaft nut and remove it. Then wiggle the tire back and forth, then lift. If you are lucky it will slide right off. then you can let the air out of your inner tube or go straight to removing the split rim bolts. the ***** driver is used between the rim and tire and pry apart the tire from the rim, work around the the rim until the tire is off on both sides, If this is a foam filled tire then you will need 2 5/16" Bolts w/ nuts and washers replace the tire and line up the hole for the bolts and push the rims together so the long bolts can make it long enough to put the nut on. the nut down a little then put another one on opposite side to pull the wheel in tighten the bolts a little on each side evenly until the original bolts are able to be used to tighten then take out long bolts and install all the rest of the shorter bolts. tighten them up and grease the shaft and put the shaft key in the slot and gently put the wheel on and tighten the shaft nut. Check to see the wheel turns with the shaft. the key can slide out some times Then tip the chair up and see how it drives. Sorry no pictures yet.

After removing the front lug nuts and small center nut , i am not able to remove the wheel and tire


in past experience I've seen the center of the wheel actually rust or just from normal road grime stick to the hub I had to kick the outer edge of the rim if that don't get it loose dictating on the kind of rim you have can use a pies of wood so you don't damage the rim but put the wood against outer edge of rim and hit it with a hammer will have to go back n forth from left to right side of wheel but it will come loose

please keep in mind this only works if all lug nuts are indeed off the center nut you was talking about does not hold the rim in place it hold the axel tight in the hub, which I am assuming you have a front wheel drive vehicle due to your question

H0w to remove rear wheel?


Take off nut, washer gently tug left/right while pulling. They can sometimes be difficult. You can place penetrating oil at key and shaft but remove all of it before placing on a new wheel. Be careful not to loose the shaft key.

Flywheel shaft leak


i think you have a gy engine
that is a vertical split you should get away with just replacing the old seal
remove the flywheel off the shaft
making sure not to lose the wood-ruff key
with a small drill
drill two small holes in the seal
with two thin screw drivers place them in the holes and draw out the old seal
with some sealant put the new seal in place
and with a flat bit of wood and a mallet or a small hammer
tap the seal into place
then put the wood-ruff key back in the groove
and replace the flywheel making sure to torque the flywheel down to the correct torque

How to remove rear wheel on a 2001 vl 800


hi, the bigest problem with this bike is supporting the machine safetly enough and high enough to remove the wheel, first start off by loosening the axle nut, then procede by supporting the machine, if no stand is available, you could use a jack and a peice of timber underneath the engine across the l/r frame tubes,undo the rear brake unit by removing the locking pin and the nut on the lower torque arm located on the brake drum note order of washers and if poss replace nut to save misplacing them, next check the amount of free play in the brake pedal, before undoing the rear brake control rod nut, when the nut is removed press down on the pedal to remove rod from brake arm, again replace nut to save loosing the spring on the rod, next raise the machine on its stand or jacking device to a height suitable to remove the wheel from underneath the rear mudguard (fender unit) next remove the already undone axle nut and withdraw the axle from the wheel and shaft housing, now remove the spacer from between the brake drum and frame on the r/h/side and place in a position on the same side of the machine for quick replacment. you are now ready to remove the wheel from the shaft unit, leaving the brake drum in place in the wheel,standing asside the rh/side of the machine pull the wheel unit away from the shaft towards you this may require some to and fro movment on the front and rear of the wheel,the wheel should fall away quite steadily, alowing the wheel gently to lower ground remove the wheel tilting it slightly will increase clearence, the only difficulty with this job as i previously mentioned is supporting the machine and keeping it stable so any undoing would be prefered with the wheels on the ground, replace in reverse order, hope this helps paul

The rear drum wont come off as i would expect


Yes, Undo the 32mm nut, first. And, don't get the bearings dirty with dust from the brake drums, or , if you do, replace the inner and outer bearings with new greased up ones.prev.gif next.gif REAR DRUM BRAKES Brake Drums REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION
Brake linings contain asbestos. Asbestos is a known cancer-causing agent. When working on brakes, remember that the dust which accumulates on the brake parts and/or in the drum contains asbestos. Always wear a protective face covering, such as a painter's mask, when working on the brakes. NEVER blow the dust from the brakes or drum.
  1. Raise the vehicle and support safely.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. On vehicles without rear bearing hub, remove the dust cap, cotter pin, nut lock, wheel bearing nut and washer from the spindle. Remove the outer wheel bearing. Remove the drum with the inner wheel bearing from the spindle. If the drum is difficult to remove, remove the plug from the rear of the backing plate and push the self adjuster lever away from the star wheel. Rotate the star wheel to retract the shoes. Remove the grease seal.
  4. If equipped with a rear bearing hub, remove the drum by removing the retainer screws from the drum and pulling the drum from the hub assembly. If the drum is difficult to remove, remove the plug from the rear of the backing plate and push the self adjuster lever away from the star wheel. Rotate the star wheel to retract the shoes. To install:
  5. On vehicles equipped without rear bearing hub, lubricate and install the inner wheel bearing. Install a new grease seal. Install the drum to the spindle. Lubricate and install the outer wheel bearing, washer and nut. Adjust the bearing preload following the procedure outlined in the "Rear Wheel Bearing'' of this section. When the bearing preload is properly set, install the nut lock and a new cotter pin. Install the grease cap.
  6. On vehicles with rear bearing hub, install the brake drum to the hub assembly and install the retaining screws.
  7. Install the wheel and tire assembly. Adjust the rear brakes as required.
  8. Apply the brakes until a firm pedal is obtained, prior to moving the vehicle.

How do you change a wheel seal on a mercury mountaneer 1998 rear end


Axle Vent
NOTE: If the vent cannot be cleared, it must be installed new.
A plugged vent will cause excessive seal lip wear due to internal pressure buildup. If a leak occurs, check the vent. Make sure the vent hose is not kinked. Remove the hose from the vent nipple and clear the hose of any foreign material. While the hose is removed, pass a length of mechanics wire or a small diameter Allen wrench in and out of the vent to clean it. Connect the hose when done. The vent is located on the drivers side top of axle housing.
If you plan on doing most repairs yourself I would suggest buying a Haynes or Chilton manual for your particular vehicle. Or there are some data disks on e.bay($12-$15) For a cost of under $25, you can almost do any repair yourself with these manuals.Also there are online manuals like the site called ALLDATA where guides can be viewed for a fee. All these solutions will save you time and money, and give peace of mind over correct repairs. I can post you some procedures here also.
