Hello lreed27:

Most Transaxles will Allow the Unit to Move when in Neutral as Long as the Parking Brake Lever is Released, Unless the Transaxle is a Hydrostatic/Hydromatic Transaxle. If a Hydro Transaxle, then there has to be a Pressure Release Lever that will Open the Internal Bypass Valve and Allow the Hydraulics System to Free Flow the Hydraulic Oil throught the Transaxle and Allow the Unit to Move.
>>On the Transaxle is an OEM Identification Plate. Send me the Information Off of This Plate, Please. With this Information, I can Locate the Proper Manuals and Better Assist You.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully

LX-178..replaced rear wheel and found a 2 inch pin on the floor. The clutch will not work..spins..where does this pin go?


It is likely a roll pin that attaches the shift clutch arms to the trans-axle. These pins do not usually remove easily. Look carefully at each arm assembly to find the one missing. Replace with a new pin.

Hope this helps?

I have a craftsman rider LT2-2000 I can't find a pin or lever to pull to push in reverse when not running anyone know where to find it


all the riding mowers free wheel rods are on the back of the mower below the fender with a locking mechanism, zero turns are either under the seat where the hydraulic pumps are or under the mower but above the deck there's 2 rods on every zero turn. not all the riding mowers have the roll rod some just have neutral and the machine rolls, check your brakes under the back transmission just jiggle the brake and it should unloosen and free roll I hope at least some of this information helps you if not now then in the future

Brought riding mower into the garage thru a side door,after that back wheels locked up would not start after that ?


try bringing it in the front door but I don't think that will fix the problem. if the wheels are locked up there is a safety switch that will not let it start if the trans is in gear

All trans to engine bolts are removed. engine mounts are free, engine still won't come out. I don't know what else could possibly be keeping it from seperating. Is it absolutely necessary to remove...


YES YOU MUST SEPERATE TO GET TO FLYWHEEL
THER IS TWO DOWEL PIN ONE PER SIDE TOWADS THE TOP OF THE TRANSMISION
PART OF ENGINE BLOCK THEY OFTEN BIT AND HOLD ON GOOD IF YOU ARE SURE THAT
ALL THE BOLTS OF THE TRANSMISION ARE UNDONE YOU SHOULD PUT THE ENGINE MOUNT BOLT BACK IN PUT JACK UNDER FRONT OF ENGINE HARMONIQUE PULLEY TO
STABILIZED MOTOR THEN WITH SECOND JACK AT REAR OF TRANSMISION JACK UP TO
START THE RELEASE THEN LOWER BACK DOWN TO RELASE TOP OF TRANSMISION
THEN WITH SUTIBLE PRY BAR BETWEEN ENGINE AND TRANS PRY APART UNTIL FREE
FIRST I WOULD UNBOLT TORQUE AND PUSH BACK IN TRANSMISION AND PUT A RETAINER TO PREVENT TORQUE FROM FALLING OUT OTHERWISE YOU WILL NEED TO CHANGE THE TORQUE PUMP INPUT SEAL IT WILL LEAK IF SEPERATED

How do I remove the steering wheel from a TORO 16-38HXL Lawn tractor?


It will either have a roll pin on the underside of the wheel, or under the decal in the center of the wheel (which should pry off with a small flat screwdriver) it will be held on by a nut.

Why does my steering weel just pull right off the gear and come out of place im i missin something


Either you lost or broke the C-clip or roll pin that secures it. OVer time the roll pins wear and break. Look and see if its visible and if it is tuning the wheel should make tube below it to turn if not the pin is gone, replace it.

Ron, the trans axle is a sealed unit and not serviceable. It sounds to me like perhaps your brakes are not releasing at the trans axle. With the engine off, release the drive at the rear of the tractor and try to roll it. If it does not roll freely, your problem is with the brakes

John Deere 4210 brakes are locked up


On both sides of trans housing just in front of axles is where brake shafts go into trans.To fix this you have to spray alot of lube between shaft and housing while trying to rotate shaft.This may take hours to free up and also check for the return springs to still be hooked up to lower roll bar frame.I have seen this alot in the 4000 series tractors.
