Most of them have a pin to lock the wheel to the axle... Check the center hub of the wheel and see if you can find some kind of hole that a pin would go in to lock axle to the wheel...

My Earthquake Rear Tine Gas Rototiller - 196cc Viper Engine 4-cycle just makes a squeeling noise and tines won't rotate.


Sounds like the belt is slipping. Have you removed the belt cover and inspected the belt and the tensioner pulley ? If your model is like mine the tension can be adjusted just below the handles by looseneing the nut where the cable goes into the cable sheath and moving the cable cover further away from the handle. That takes up some slack and will make the tensioner pulley tighter on the belt. If the belt is shot tension isn't going to help.
Try "google" with "earthquake 5070 manual" first option should be a PDF copy of a model 5070 manual. Will have diagrams on how to adjust the cables.

Wheels 0n troybilt rototiller won't turn


Many Troybuilt Tillers have Pins on the Wheels and axle. Like troybuilt Bronco for instance. If you want the wheel to turn you need to set that pin so it goes through the rim and through the axle.

2001 ford windstar the right axle spin slower then the left one. What can be the problem i both two new axle and it stil spin slower then the right but it move better do i need to rebuild the trans


I don't think you can assess the condition of the transaxle by spinning the wheels.
The differential in the transaxle converts power from the transmission to the wheels by a set of gears. It would almost impossible for one side to turn at a different speed than the other.
You may have more drag on the brakes on one wheel, or the fluid in the transaxle could cause one side to go slower with the van off the ground.

What is the foot pounds for the front wheel bearings on a 1995 chrysler cirrus


Hello, If you Chrysler has replaceable wheel bearings and seal. This is the way it goes---pack the wheel bearing with new grease-install the bearing in the wheel nub--install new back wheel seal--coat the axle shaft with grease lightly, thing coat-----install wheel hub on to axle shaft...be careful here don't damage the rear hub seal------------insert front race washer---install axle shaft nut--tighten nut down wheel nut until it is firm with water pump pliers----spin the hub/with tire mounted.
(the wheel and hub will turn but not freely)----take the pliers and back off the axle nut 1/4 turn----now spin the wheel and axle hub, it should spin freely---now if doesn't spin freely---back off the axle nut about 1/16 or 1/32 (or just a little bit)-----now, spin the wheel and hub and if turn freely------------Now grab the top of the wheel/tire and move it back and forth.-----if there is some movement ---try tighten the axle nut just a little little bit, unit the one can barely feel some little movement in the wheel/tire and hub.-----------Now, spin the wheel/tire and hub and it should also turn freely.

If it does----install new and correct size of cotter pin and bent the ends around the axle nut.----

coat the inside of the hub cup with grease. Now, use an rubber or plastic hammer to install the cup on the wheel/tire hub. You are finished with one wheel bearing maintenance. Now do the other side.



I really don't know if you Chrysler Cirrus has replaceable wheel bearing. All the auto/trucks have replaceable hubs, that means that the replacement is total hub with axle shaft, sealed bearings, and seals. This is bolt to each wheel steering hub. This work to remove these one unit hubs.

Four bolts hold the axle hub to the steering hub. Hear is the problem!! it has rusted to the steering hub. Also, these hubs cost more than replacing bearings, races, seals to cool turn of $180 to $250+ I wish you luck in your replacement of wheel bearing on your Chrysler. GB..stewbison

I have a new trike that may have ome shipping damage (bought at flea market) The rear axel appears to be bent. severe wheel wooble. is there some adjustment in those set screw type bolts in the center of...


The set screws in the center of the axle are there to keep the axle centered in the frame. Only the right wheel is powered which also means only the right wheel brakes when operating the rear brake. This is because the rear wheels must be able to spin independently when turning because the outside wheel will move faster. Unfortunately no one builds differentials at this price.

If you have wheel wobble you need to determine if the axle is bent or the wheel is not true. Prop up the rear of the bike on a stand and remove the problematic wheel. Manually pedal the bike and check the axle as it spins. If the axle is wobbling then it is bent and will need to be replaced. If it spins true then the wheel is the culprit.

The axle is relatively inexpensive and can be ordered through a Schwinn dealer. Any bike shop should be able to true a wheel for around $15-$20.

Have a rototiller it moves OK but the tines do not turn It is a mtd yard machine rear tine


Seems to be a fairly common problem with these units. If the big pulley is turning which I assume it is as the drive wheels work, it is most likely a problem in the gear box. The shift mechanism in these units leave a lot to be desired. You can try to repair it your self or take it to a service center. Labor will be high due to the amount of time required to separate the engine and transmission.

Wheels turn, tines don't


These machines have an arm to activate the tines independantly from the wheels, make sure that the tine arm is in the on position.
If not, seems like you have a transmission problem, you'll have to get dirty to fix this one and open up the transmission casing to see if its just the link between the tine arm and tine crankshaft that broke or if its more serious.
