How do you change blades on 5ft bush hog?


lift The brush hog up and place on blocks or other foundation that wont fall over. disconnect the power take off shaft from the tractor. Now look for two round openings in the middle of the deck one on ether side of the gear box (the thing on the brush hog that the pto shaft from the tractor hooks up to to make it spin there might be a slip clutch on the shaft but go to the box in the middle) Now turn the shaft till you see the blade nuts in the hole These could be castle nuts with a small carter pin locking them so they don't unscrew. Remove the pin and with a large socket set unscrew it from the bolt then knock the press fit bolt down and the blade will come off, do the same to the other blade if you need them both off. To put them back on use something under the blade and bolt to hold it up so you can start the nut then reverse the order and put everything back on. The blade bolt might be stubborn to get out just take something that fits through the access hole like a wood doll or long punch and drive the bolt down till it comes out as it is press fit and is jammed up to keep the bolt from turning, when putting it back on you will need to make it tight so the bolt can repress back in. Be Careful when reaching under to set the blade and bolt back in. There is not much you can mess up it is just a big nut and bolt Just make sure you put the blade on the way it came off if you do one blade or one at a time you can look at the other to see which way it goes.

Ryobi ry60514 is frozen.


Does the engine turn over? If not then it has most likely seized. If the engine turns but the blades won't then make sure you didn't wrap something around the tines causing it to bind up

I need a diagram of how to put the Blade belt on my Yardman 42' riding lawnmower


Yeah, these belts can seem impossible to figure out. There are idler pulleys that press against the back of the belt. The routing is sometimes not obvious. Do a search for your particular model.

The pull rope to start my bolens bl150 weed eater broke and can't get the new one too wind up


You need to pretension the spring before installing. Easier to do this before attaching the line, but there is a technique (at least for larger engines) for adjusting spring tension with the line still on. If you need I can describe it for you or tell you where on youtube I saw a guy do this. That video was for a snowblower engine, but the technique worked on my chipper. I see no reason why it would not work on a smaller two stroke, assuming there is nothing wacky about the configuration. I would think that a recoil starter for a two stroke and a four stroke should all use the same principle,.

I have a lawn vacuum which uses a B&S 129882-1936-d1 engine. I can start it on one pull, but then it quickly dies. I've checked and have airtight seal. WHat I can see is that the throttle cable...


I'm surprised you can't move the linkage yourself. The spring is attached to an arm that goes back under the cowling. That are has a blade on it the sits in the airflow of the motors cooling fan. As the motor runs faster the blade causes more tension on the spring and changes closes or opens the carburetor a little. The throttle cable and the fan set the position of the carburetor. Check to make sure the the blade up in the airpath has not somehow gotten jammed. Also the choke setting can cause the problem you describe. Make sure it's linkage is not binding somehow...

Drive wheels not ternning


Tillers have a handle that you "squeeze to go". The handle activates a clutch, usually through a flexible cable. Does that handle offer resistance about halfway up as you squeeze it?

If not, that cable may have stretched a bit. Try adjusting the clutch by turning the nuts on the threaded sleeve where the cable comes out near the handle, until you get resistance when you squeeze the handle. The cable could also be broken, in which case adjusting won't help, but replacing the cable isn't expensive.

There's something else to check. Tillers have a pin to lock the wheels to the axle. It's right at the wheel hub. The pin can be pulled out to make it easy to move the tiller without running the motor. If you can push the tiller around easily with the motor off, then you may just have a missing wheel pin.

If it's not these simple things, it could be something worse like a problem in the transmission. If reverse works, but not forward, then it's probably the transmission, which is bad news. I hope it's one of the simple problems above.

Please rate if this was helpful, thanks and good luck!.

Rotohoe tiller won't start any ideas?


First step is to check for spark. Remove the spark plug. You can put the plug wire back on. Then pull cord. Should have a blue spark at the plug. If you do. Try putting a small amount of fuel table spoon in plug hole. install the spark plug and see if it will start. If it dose and will not run for more then a few seconds your not getting fuel. Make sure the fuel is on and clean. If this dose not help you need to make sure the carburetor is getting fuel. Turn off or pinch fuel line. remove from the carburetor . turn back on fuel see if flowing. If this is ok and still wont run. The float in carburetor is stuck. Remove float bowel. Bolt on bottom. Lightly tap with fuel on and see if flowing. If not turn fuel off. Remove float bowel. Under the float is the needle and seat. remove the needle turn on fuel see if flowing. should be. Replace the needle if tip is bad. if not reinstall and install float bowel. prime by first step small amount of fuel in spark plug hole. Should be fine after this.

Mtd 17.5 will not start


Riding mower have three safety switches. One under the seat, one under the clutch and one on the blade lever. Make sure all are making contact as the button tip can get worn after many uses. These can be replaced. One trick you can try before that..
Sit on the mower and pull the blade engagement lever back further than necessary and hold it in that position while trying to start it. This may work as it puts more pressure on the safety switch button and makes contact possible.

Squeeze throttle engine doesn't increase/tines don't turn


Most likely the throttle shaft on your carb is stuck from residual fuel. Follow your throttle cable down to your carburetor and see if the shaft is moving when you press the trigger on the handle. If not, try moving it by hand and see if it loosens up. If not you may have to take off the air filter cover and spray some carb cleaner in the throat of the carb while moving the shaft back and forth until it loosens up. That should work for you.
