SOURCE: My Troybilt Snow Blower wheels have locked up

Just found the same problem with mine.  The bearing on the gear shaft is frozen.  To replace these, follow the instructions in the manual to replace the friction wheel, then tap out the bearings in the side of the case, you'll probably find one frozen up.  As long as you're there, might as well put in a new friction wheel.  Mine is looking pretty worn after fighting the bearings all winter.

SOURCE: Pull cord broken. After removing red hood and

You don't need to remove the rivets. There should be two metal tabs that bend over the nylon retractor, or it'll have a screw in the middle of the retractor pulley inside the cover. you bend those up a little, or remove the screw, remove the retractor, be careful, because that spring can be fun if it gets away from you, take the old rope out, put the retractor back in place, wind it back as far as you can, feed the rope in, tie the knot, and let it draw the rope in. Put everything back like you found it, and your pull rope if fixed.

Can I fix a broken garage door extension spring myself ?


Yes you can!
Raise the door all the way. place clamps or vise grips on the frame to keep it safely up.
Very carefully, remove the unbroken spring and get a pair of new ones from the nearest overhead door company.
Install the new springs and then and only then remove the clamps.

Throw out barring fork doesnot allignment with clutch slave fork too short


Did it pop out of position or what? Or was this after you replaced the clutch or what?

Well on clutch forks ive seen. There is a rounded stud sticking out and goes into a rounded
spot on the that the fork, and the makes the fork pivot.

And theres a spring that snaps the throwout bearing onto the fork. Could either be that
the spring broke, or the fork is not aligned on the rounded stud and has slipped down.

I think the spring broke and made the fork drop down, because the spring holds the bearing
onto the fork and the fork could not have dropped down without the spring either breaking
on popping off. There is usually a rubber boot that covers the place where the fork goes
into the transmission. Pull the boot off and look through the holes where the boot goes.
If somrhing has come off or broken you will be able to tell.

I have a TroyBilt series 560 self propelled mower with a Honda engine. The other day I was half finished with the lawn, stopped for a minute, and went to start the mower put my starter string was still...


hi there

csimonis

it is quite likly that you could need a new pulley and spring

but remove the cover and the starter assy 1st and check that the pawls have not stayed out or jammed , then try winding the spring and pulley up in the direction that the cord is moving when you pull the starter cord - check that end of the spring is still engaged onto the pulley , but if no tension is noted broken spring indicated

sometimes a replacement starter assy is quicker , cheaper

your local mower shop may have a spring & or pawls or starter assy for your model

but just in case get the model codes & numbers off the white tag from your mower
and check out this site for parts
www.ereplacementparts.com
go to troybilt
then select troybilt mower parts
then find your model from the list
then find starter assembly

parts can be ordered on line

cheers paul46
hope it helps

Spring keeps breaking on mower deck belt tighener.


I would try getting a stonger spring but the same length as the orriginal spring. The spring still needs to have enough tension to pull the pully back, if you get one that dosn't have as much tension it wont pull the pully tight enought.

Door spring broke on Cruisinart CTO 350 series Toaster Oven


I had same problem with my cuisinar 350 series broken door spring. After disassembly found a broken extension spring measuring about 3/16 dia.,by 6.5 inches long.Spring was broken about a third down. I lifted ,or bended a loop and a halve up from each broken section and joined the two sections together. lifting each loop of the spring is tricky at first, requires a small screwdriver to be inserted between loop to be lifted and then gently bent the loop with needlenose pliers.
Not knowing how to disassemble the unit I had a hard time assembling the unit back.
I would start by taking off the screws holding the front black backlite first, then the main cover.
The main stainless steel cover does not have to be removed completely, by just gently unbending
the cover I was able to access the spring for removal.
Lots of luck

My 2001 kx250 keeps breaking kick shafts after 15 or 20 kicks. i've replaced the spring, bushing, circlips, washers and now two kick shafts.


i am not as familiar with kawaski's but a friend told me that certain kx's and yz's had poor quality shafts that were brittle?

the couple of broken shafts that i've seen were caused by the kicker being kicked so aggressively that when it contacts the stop. the stop acts as a fulcrum transferring the load to the shaft thus breaking it and possibly the case to.

Spring is broken


There are many springs on a riding mower. Is it the clutch spring, the idler pulley spring, or maybe the blade brake springs. There are also springs on the brakes and even under the set. Please be more specific.

Replaced belt but it keeps slipping


There is a pivot spring on the side of the motor. It is a large "U" shaped spring. This is the only spring there is on this unit. The motor itself sits on a floating plate. Make sure this plate moves side-to-side. If it doesn't it will need to be broken loose.
