Front pedals

Yes, you got the bolts too tight on the axle shaft. You have to "sets" of nuts, the inner and the outer. The inner nuts on the shaft, which go inside the fork, should be adjusted so the wheel is rolling freely, with just a tiny "slop". Now, you will need to figure out a way to tighten the outer nuts to hold the wheel on the fork without turning or moving the inner nuts! Some bicycle shops use specially thin wrenches.
Be blessed.

Power wheels

If the wheels are bowed out it is usually caused by the steering linkage being damaged. Power Wheels vehicles have a long metal bar that runs between the two front wheels on the vehicle, on either end of the long bar is a plastic bracket. The bracket is riveted to the long bar and sometimes that can become loose or bent.
Remove the battery and flip the vehicle over, inspect the linkage and also the front axles to see if they are bent or damaged. If any parts are they need to be replaced, also make sure the tires themselves are not damaged.
Here is a link to the parts you will need for the repair.

Rear axle replace

screw 1 of the cone pieces(that fit bearings)tapered section towards centre of axle(about 3/4 inch), then slip 1 bearing case on axle from other end with bearing side facing centre. Then insert axle into hub and put bearing on other end(bearings facing middle)then cone.
**NOTE** Put small amount of bearing grease inside hub for bearings. Doesn't have to be bicycle grease- I use auto grease as you get 10times as much for same price.
Then adjust cones by hand untill there isn't any slack and axle centered.Then screw on thin nut(both ends), it acts as lock nut for cones.To tighten correctly you need a skinny spanner to hold cone while you tighten the skinny nut. Spanners from bike shop only cost about $2. Can adjust without a narrow head spanner by leaving a bit of slack when doing up cones and hopefully lock effect between cone/nut grabs before cones are over tight(a bit of messing around without a narrow spanner).
There shouldn't be any slack between axle/cones and wheel, wheel should spin freely.
Put wheel on bike then a washer(if you have any)outside frame, then larger wheel nuts.
Hopefully all your pieces have been used. HAPPY RIDING

I am unable to fit the fork on the front wheel axle bar. It is too tight and won't fit. Do I need to force and open it a little bit?

If it is the original tire than you might have to spread the forks a little bit. If it is not the original front tire than the axle might be to long for that bike. In any case you are on the right track be careful when trying to spread the forks as to not spread to much and also don't get hurt in process. Good Luck...

I am trying to put on the front wheel but it is not fitting, there is a washer tightened on each side towards the wheel. Am I supposed to take those off before trying to put the wheel on? Otherwise, what...

If you're talking about the washers which can screw in and out you don't take them off. They hold the ball-bearings, that the axle turns on, in place. If you have moved them you should adjust them so that when you hold the wheel by the axle at each side the weight of the valve, for pumping the wheel, moves to the bottom i.e. next the ground. Any tighter is too tight any looser is too loose. You need to pull he forks of the bike frame slightly apart to get the wheel to fit between them.

If you're talking about washers that can pull off rather than screw off they can be taken off and put on the axle outside the forks next the nuts which hold the wheel on.

I just took the parts out of a box 16" princess

The black plastic caps on the axle are just to protect the threads during shipping. You can throw them away. There may also be a plastic spacer on the front fork that keeps the fork from becoming bent together during shipping. This can be discarded too. good luck. Al K

We just bought a womens lakeshore 26" and the assembly instructions are terrible. How do you affix the front wheel?

The front wheel axle fits into the fork, there is a U shaped notch in each fork leg at the end of the fork. There are two washers with bent tangs on them that fit into holes just above where the axle fits into the fork. Slide the washers onto the axle, one on each side. the tangs on the washers should fit into the small holes above each U shaped notch that the axle is in. Next screw on the nuts supplied for the fork. The tire should be centered between the fork legs before you tighten the nuts to secure the front wheel to the fork.

Cna't remove front wheel from my giant cypress bicycle

your wheel is either held on by a nut on either side of the fork or a quick release. In the case of the nut, you simply loosen both sides using a wrench and then the wheel will come off (the axle may have rusted to the fork so you may need to "persuade" it a bit with a rubber mallet). If you have a quick release, you unlock the release lever by pulling it towards may also need to then unscrew the nut on the other side before the wheel will release.
