    One more piece of info on the 10685 axle not turning smoothly, it will turn smoothly if I push the gear box forward. When it moves back to tak eup the slack on the belt, then it is diffuclyty to rotate the axle.

    yes, I would go back to the start. some rear drive set ups didn't roll very well in reverse to begin with but sounds like you made an oops

You have most likely bound up the axle(s) or gears or both

My scotts rotory spreader will not spin

The design is quite simple with one wheel driving a bevel gear in a gear box. If the wheel turns the axle shaft and the center pin in the spreader with the retainer/cotter pin does not turn it is likely something has failed in the gear box.

If both wheel spins and the axle does not turn than the drive wheel has disengaged the axle shaft and the cotter pin in the drive wheel needs to be replaced.

The compounds used in the spreaders are corrosive. Usually the gears and axle become bound due to corrosion. By oiling the bearings and wiggling the wheels they will free up,
Hope this helps?.

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!

When both wheels are in the air it is normal that one wheel will not turn when put in gear.

There is nothing wrong with the axle or the transmission.

Dissasembling tecumseh ride on gearbox

There is an official Tecumseh/Peerless motion drive system manual available, which deals with the strip-down and rebuild of all current and recent transmissions. Parts availability MAY be a problem, however, not to mention that internal transmission parts are EXPENSIVE. A set of shift keys and bearings + time will just about equal the cost of a new transmission.

the front drive axle on one side may have not been installed all the way in to the transmission, check to see if it is loose and have some one look under front end with engine on, front end jacked up, emergency brake on and in gear to see if a axle is turning. if one is and yhe other is not put the car in park and turn\ roll the wheel that was not turning by hand if it rolls your problem is most likley to be the axle has come loose from the transmission

I have a kia mentor with 46000 miles on the clock and the auto gearbox will not change up in to forth gear and the gear changes are not as smooth as i would exspect it to be i have how ever noticed that...

First thing to check is the transmission fluid, if the problem does not go replacing the fluid, then on a manual transmission you need to replace the transmission.
On an automatic transmission can be a problem with the control module or with a defective sensor.
