The first wheel and tyre in the video is complete, the second wheel in the video has the bearing and bush missing from one side, the bearing and bush are still on the axle that you are pointing at, they need to come off the shaft and press fit them back into the wheel, the mark around the outside of the tyre is a bead, this if fitted shows the tyre is true on the wheel, this is not so important on a slow moving tractor.

SOURCE: Craftsman 42 inch riding lawn mower is not cutting evenly

The first thing to check is your blades. If one is bent, it will never cut even. It happens a lot hitting roots, antbeds, etc. Mulching blades will bend easier than a straight blade. It's best to take them off and lay one on top of the other to see if they're bent.

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: 2003 DLT3000 Craftsman riding mower. Air in tires

when you put the new blades on did you notice if they were even with each other? the 42" decks have a tendency to "warp" inward on the left side. this causes the left blade to ride at an angle to the right blade - there is a tool to correct this, but not all shops have it - sometimes you can remove the deck, flip it over and wallop the inside edge of the left mandrel until the blades are even - a 2 lb. sledge works well for this

With out more information it sounds like one of the safety switches is faulty -most likley the one under the clutch pedal .To test this locate and unplug the ignition wire coming from the engine to the wiring harness the engine should keep going -- you will need to plug it back in to stop the engine.If this works then repair or replace the faulty switch.

I hope this helps

I have a 26 mongoose ravage and I need to know what size the axle bolt is for the front tire

There is no "axle bolt." The threaded rod that goes through the wheel (not tire) hub is called an axle. It is secured with axle nuts. the axle needs to be the correct diameter, length, and have the correct threads. It would be unusual to just need the axle, but if that is truly the case then take it to a bike shop and they can provide the correct part. Should not be expensive. However you need both tools and knowledge to replace an axle.

How to take off the rear tire on a Kawasaki Drifter 1500

1. Lay out a towel/cloth to set fender on and protect.
2. With bike on jack and raised(back tire/wheel just off ground), remove entire rear fender.
3. Unplug wire harness left side just to front of left shock after you remove screw/cover. There's a 8mm bolt just above and over. Same bolt opposite side of fender.
4. Remove the 4 (12mm) bolts holding fender bracket to rear housing (left) and swing arm rear (right). Hold it because it will tip back and bang! It's not real heavy but you do need to support it.
5. When removed set on towel/cloth you have ready.
6. Release pressure from brake caliper (push/pull on caliper) remove brake caliper and hang it by wire (coat hangers work great) so it's not dangling from hose. Do not touch or let anyone touch brake pedal.
7. Remove the brake caliper bracket bolt that goes through swingarm. Place a towel/cloth on floor beneath brake area.
8. Remove cotter key from axle nut.
9. Remove axle while holding axle on the left side with wrench. You can use a large crescent on the axle nut so you don't have to remove exhaust/muffler.
10. As you loosen, slide axle to the left till nut clears muffler.
11. Now when you can slide the axle out. Support the tire/wheel as it is heavy. Caution: As the axle slides out of the brake caliper bracket the spacer could fall and hit towel (which is why you put the towel there see? It prevents too much marring.
12, Now you have room to slide tire/wheel assembly over to right and disengage from the gearcase. Caution: There is a spacer in the center of the gearcase that sometimes falls out and sometimes stays in (most of time). Just make sure it goes back the same.
13. When you're ready for the re-install, grease the drive splines with good quality axle grease.
14 Re-install everything in the reverse order you took it apart.
15. Re- torque rear axle from the left side and hold axle nut (right side) with same large crescent you used to loosen the nut and install a new cotter pin. Doing it this way saves you having to remove the muffler.

When I turn my wheel to the right i get a wobble out of the front right tire. What would be the problem? Tires look fine but the axle does shift slightly from left to right would that be some problem? Or...

axle is supposed to do that. need to jack up wheel not take it off. and put hands at 12 and 6 pm and wiggle wheel if there is a lot of movement then the bearing is gone. if ok let down. take wheel off and jack back up. on the suspension there is an arm coming off it. thin bar. fixes to another bar. this is a drop link arm. not these work with the anti-roll bar that is on the front. pull on it if it moves out and in it needs changing and that is your problem. also change other side as when one goes it is best to change both side. easy job to do. on the anti-roll bar at the front there is some rubbers that hold it in place check them and if the look split or cracked would change them to wile you doing the drop links. you just unbolt them. pull the rubber out of the case and swap the rubbers and bolt back on with some locking seal.

Manual 883- rear tire almost rubbing on the right and run light not work left side -help

One possibility is the rear axle isn't aligned so the rear wheel/tire runs true to the axis of the frame. This can be visible with the drive belt not running true on it's sprocket, pulling to one side of the pulley, rather than being about equal spacing on each side of the belt to each side of the pulley.
The other possibility is the rear wheel was removed, and the axle spacers weren't reinstalled in the correct position(s).
The axle spacers are different lengths, and are specific as far as which one goes on the left, which one goes on the right.

How too remove rear axel horsehoe clips too remove axel?

In order to remove the axle, you need to go in through the rear pumpkin. Take the back plate off the rear pumpkin, then you will see where your axle comes in through the sides. Go back to the outer end of the axle, (where the tire goes) and push inward on the axle. It shouls move in about 1/2" or so, just enough to remove the clip. The clip should fall out easily if it is turned in the 'down' position. Then you will need to remove the pins that run through the axles themselvs, and the axles should pull right out to the sides.
