SOURCE: The rear wheels will not turn in reverse at all. I

Rear wheel drives like this have pinion gears with rachet pawls that allow them to go backwards freely while locking when the transmission drives them.

You need to take off your rear wheels and carefully remove the pawls. They look like little squareish metal shaft keys with springs under them. You should notice that the keys or pawls are covered in what looks like grease.....which is actually worm metal from the pinion gear and oil mixed together to form this pastey greasey substance. Clean all that stuff off and lightly oil *( light oil...3 in 1 kind of oil) and reassemble.

You should hear the nice clean clicking of the rachet pawls as you roll backwards again!

Good luck and be careful!

Remove the spark plug and try pulling the starter again. You may have a fuel leakage into the cylinder and it has caused a hydraulic lock. Check/change the needle and seat in the carb as this leaking is the usual cause if this type of problem. Good luck and please rate this solution.

SOURCE: i changed oil, blade, spark

Hi


Make sure the blade and shaft can easily be moved by hand. First, remove the spark plug wire from the plug. Reach under the mower and see if the blade will turn or if something is stuck between the blade and the mower. Also remember that you have to hold the safety bar when you are starting the mower or the engine won't turn. It is possible that the cable from the safety bar to the engine brake has come loose. Follow the cable from the safety bar to the engine and make sure it is working.Also check whether the line from the gas tank to the engine is crimped?

I have a Lawn Boy 10685. It sat for about 4 years. It would not start. I replaced the spark plug and added gas. It started right up, but the engine is high revving? what would cause this? How do I fix


Sounds like the return spring on the air vane governor is stretched. Take the shroud off and look for the paddle shaped piece of plastic next to the flywheel. There should be no slack in the attached spring. You can shorten the spring if needed with a pair of needle nose pliers.

Oil mixture for 1985f series 2 cycle lawn-boy mower


Contact your dealer ! but 32:1 sounds correct. 8 ounces of Lawnboy oil to two gallons of gasoline ....is 32:1, 8 ounces of oil to one gallon of fuel is 16:1 for the real old lawnboys,
When Toro bought out OMC,and started using Tecumseh mowers,the ratio changed in the late 80's or early nineties ! IIRC :o)

What Oil so I Need for a Toro lawn mover 6.75 HP ?


I think you are talking about a Toro pushmower with a 6.75 Briggs motor on it. If so; it is a four stroke motor and requires 10w-30 motor oil.
If it has a dipstick then its a 4-stroke. If there is no way to add oil to the crankcase and no way to check the oil level then its a 2-stroke ( ie. lawn boy and some really old snapper pushmowers)

Hi, change the oil and your problem will be solved. Basically it was over full because fuel has by-passed the carby needle and leaked into the sump while its been sitting idle. Regards Phil.

My Troy Built Self propelled lawn mower has a oil leak which results in white smoke coming from it. What is causing it? I had it for 3 months.


Hi smithjazzy8...
Check your oil level, it sounds like it has got too much oil in the crankcase.
The oil level should be to the last two threads on the fill plug threads of the engine.
This is the main cause of white smoke coming from the exaust of the engine.

Lawn boy 2 cycle that smokes


Check the air breather. Make sure it is clean.

If it is clean, you will probably need to replace the diaphragm. A bad diaphragm will cause black smoke and also cause the mower to run erratically.
