SOURCE: Need to remove rear wheels to replace tires on MTD riding mower.

most likely rust has taken over
find some liquid wrench or pb blaster and spray the axles liberally and let it penetrate the axles and wheel hubs where the axle goes through.
use a 2x4 and a hammer to tap against the wheel hub to try to move it down the axle then tap in back on to try to free it up as the penetrating oil works in, spin the wheel and tap in different areas of it
the worst case cenario would be to use a torch and heat the axle and hub up and drive it off, but it sounds as though you are moving it some and with some patience they eventually should come off
when you put them back be sure to coat the axle with some grease and do not forget to reinstall the key stock in each wheel, if they have it
the bolt in the center of the axle is all you need to remove and note where the washers came from and where they go back.

hope this helps you some

SOURCE: no manual for Husquvarna ride on mower model 4140H

Don't know if this helps but the owners manual for my Husq YTH2148
indicates that the transmission fluid is not to be changed, ever. If there is a problem, the whole unit is to be replaced.

These mowers, along with many craftsman rider mowers, are actually made by Roper. Perhaps if you googled around a bit you could get more info relating to service of the transaxle.

Easiest way - remove the deck, then physically lift the front of the tractor up so it sits on it's tail end. Most Craftsman models will sit like this unsupported. In this position, the engine will not leak oil, and you can see what you're doing.

Disconnect brake at transaxle. Apply parking brake (now disconnected, but it will also release belt tension).

Disconnect shift lever at trans.

Remove wheels.

Remove 6 bolts (4 through half shaft bearing supports, 2 through brackets at front of trans)

Remove trans & fix.

Jack the mower up at the rear and make it stable before doing any work on it, remove the rear wheels by removing the hub caps if they are still on the wheels and remove the cir clip and washer on each wheel and remove the wheels. there will be a key way on each axle when you remove the wheel, make sure they are put back in their place when assembling the wheels onto the axles or you will not have any drive on the wheels
Remove the drive belt, brake rod etc then support the trans axle before removing the retaining bolts and removing the trans axle from the mower. hope this helps.
If you are not mechanically inclined then you should leave the repairs of the trans axle to the mower repair shop unless you are buying a new or reconditioned trans axle, in which case you can fit the new trans axle in the reverse order of removal.

I have an Ariens YT150H riding mower and the hydrostatic transmission seems disengaged. I have already checked the manual selector at the back on the tractor and it is in the correct position. It has been...

Make sure that when you reinstalled the rear tire, that you reinstalled the keyway into the axle. I think your wheel is probably just spinning on the axle. Otherwise, did you have to get rough with the wheel to take it off the axle??? Some of these trans have a snap ring on the inside of the unit that holds the axle in place. Hammering on the wheel can often cause the snap ring to come off internally in the trans.
I really hop you just missed putting the keyway back into the axle.
Good luck!

My craftsman lawn mower acts like its slipping going up small hills

check ur drive belt [ runs from the engine upper pulley under frame to the rear trans axle thru a series of pulleys and spring loaded adjusters] the belt has probably worn down or has streched to where it slips under a medium load

Need diagram for 2003 PT Cruiser engine and ties to chasiss (what holds the engine to the body)

the engine and transmission are called a trans axle your vehicle is a uni body construction,however your engine and trans are mounted on a sub frame as an assembly and are a separate part of the vehicle,that is, when the vehicle is built the trans axle is on its own frame raised up into the vehicle and bolted in place.then the electrical,hoses,exhaust,brake lines,etc. are connected to the body from it. all of this is part of the front of the vehicle only. if you look under the front of your vehicle you can see the bolts that connect the sub frame to the vehicle,however the front of the engine is connected to the body by a rubber mount this keeps the engine at proper height absorbs vibration and hold engine in place.the trans axle is mounted to the sub frame with fluid filled rubber mounts.
