Question about Craftsman Riding Mowers & Garden Tractors
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.!

It might be a saftey problem. But before you start changing swithches or whatever try this. If you have to lift a lever to engage the PTO for the blades try wiggling it up and down a little bit while sitting on the tractor and the brake pedal depressed and turning the key to start it.
Sometimes there is a little wearing and it won't be in the right spot on its own.
Good luck and let me know if this helped.

Look under the seat of your tractor and note the complete Model number.
(usually begins with 917. _ _ _ _ _ _ )
Next, go to THIS PAGE and use the Model Number to find an exploded view of the steering components and how they assemble.
Hope this helps,

PART NUMBER: 149686
enter either of those numbers into your browser and find your best deal. I got mine from outdoor distributors, they had the best price. This is the whole assy, the individual parts add up to a lot more.
