Drive wheel on Lawn Boy "Insight" squeaks, oiling didn't help

After oiling, the drive wheel (right-rear) on my Lawn Boy "Insight" still squeaks, whether the motor is running or not. Could the problem be inside the drive unit or is it most likely the wheel bolt needs oiling and I need to make a better effort at same?
Thank you

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!

Belt jump off the drive pulley


I don't have this kind of mower. But I was faced with the same problem recently. I got my belt back on by taking a large wrench and affixing it to the bolt head holding the pulley which you want to slip the belt on. Hold the belt firmly against the pulley and turn the wrench and the belt in the grove will walk around the pulley until it slips in place.

Have you tried looking at www.flymo.com. Select the country you are in. Looks like you are going to need to find a different model number to find whatt you are looking for. But maybe this site will get you headed in the right direction.
