This is normal it take ALOT of force. I end up using a large hammer and a solid 2x4 to cusion the rim. Smacking it once good from the outside of the mower too. all this take place the the next morning after spraying in some pb blaster or similar anti seize spray into the axel.. and tilting the mower slightly. Dont use a torch it wont help. It only makes things hot and you will ruin the tranny seals.

I know its frustrating. expect that key way to be part of the problem in there to.

I took off the rear wheel to put air in it and have it poped back on the rim since replaceing the wheel the tractor will not ingage in to foward or reverce gear . is there some trick to this


Often there is a keyway in the axle corresponding to another on the inside of the rim hub. Did you check this and make sure the key is there. If the key is gone the axle's turning will not spin the tire.

Rear wheel removal from craftman riding mower


Do you have the rim and tire off and you want to remove the hub?
I believe every rider mower and tractor I've had and worked on had the rear tire attached to the hub as in a car, with lug nuts or lug bolts. Check to see if there are four or five lug bolts that hold the rim onto the hub.

My John Deer L130 tractor needed a new tire so I bought one and put it on. Now it will not go into gear. It will not go forward or backwards. Why won't it go. Please help Tammy


This was a rear tire I assume. There's a square key about 2" long that fits in a groove in the axle and a slot in the rim. You probably pushed it out putting the wheel back on and didn't notice. Look where you took off/put tire on. It should be laying there.

Try some penetrating oil around where the rim and shaft meet. Spray as far into the space as possible. Let sit for a little while to let the oil work. You may have to persuade it with a hammer.

I would like to change the front tires lawn mower


Remove the wheel from the mower.

Let all the air out

Lay the tire flat

Push on the tire to release the grasp on the diameter of the rim (use a malet if ou need to)

Apply soapy water to the tire and rim

Insert a standard screwdriver between the tire and rim and pry the tire over the rim in one spot

Then work the screwdriver around the rim, pulling the rest of the tire up and over as you
go

Repeat the last step for the other side of the tire, same side of the rim though!

Viola, there you have it. Shade tree mechanic at it best. And NO labor cost$$$!!!!!

Removal of rear wheel on cox stockman ride on mower


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.!

Removing tire from SEARS CRAFTSMAN LT1000 TRACTOR.


You need to remove the black rubber cap from the center of the wheel. Remove the "C" clip from the axle and the wheel should come off. The rear tires will have a square key in it. Do not loose the key.
