Question about Troy Bilt, Tuffy, Rear - Tine Tiller, 4.0 Tecumseh Engine

Open Question

Flat tire, sitting on the rim

My ( it belongs to the small condo association I am part of) Yard Machine/26" 8.0 HP Tecumseh
has a flat tire and needs a tune up.

I wonder if there is a service that either will come to my house to repair it or to pick it up and take it somewhere to be repaired.

If I were able to get it into some truck, where would I take it?

Names of services? Types of places that would do this?

I'm near Boston, MA

SOURCE: Mounting Tubeless tire on Rim of riding lawn mower

With the mower jacked up place a belt or rope around the center of the tire all away around and draw it tight. Apply pressure and when the tire starts to fill you can release the belt. Apply pressure until you hear the bead pop, indicating that it has a bead lock to the rim. Let the air out to the right pressure, check all tire pressures and set the deck to level. Go mow your lawn.

The Rims get froze in place after a while. You can try spraying some WD40 it and let it set for some time but I suspect you will need some Heat and a Hammer. I had to Heat up the axle area and strike it from behind with a good size Hammer to get mine off. A Puller won't work because there isn't anywhere to grab the rim. WD40, Heat and a hammer!!

Runs fine on flat ground will not pull a hill

Sounds like you could be running on one cylinder. I assume you have a two cylinder B&S, Tecumseh, or Kawasaki. Remove one spark plug at a time and try driving the mower. If you have nothing on one spark plug and drives exactly the same with the other, then you have a dead cylinder. Can be a spark problem, unlikely a fuel problem assuming a single carb, a bad head gasket, bent push rods. A lot of B&S Vanguard engines, including mine, have a tendency towards bent push rods.

Yard machine rototiller has a flat tire.

You may have to bring it in to a tire mounting service station, as these small tires can be hard to re-seat. You need enough air pressure to seat the tire bead in the rim.

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

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$$$!!!!!
