Hello Max, I also have had this problem. If your wheels have two holes that are 90 degrees from each other you can remove the attaching bolt at the end of the axle. You will need to acquire a heavy duty bar type puller, two long bolts of the correct length and diameter for the holes, two nuts, and four heavy duty flat washers. You will also need some kind of drift or spacer at the end of the axle between the axle and the pressure screw of the puller. The drift or spacer needs to be smaller in diameter than the sleeve of the wheel. DO NOT press directly against the bolt hole on the end of the axle with the pressure screw. Assemble the bolts through the holes in the wheel and onto the bar puller using the flat washers and nuts Usually it takes a tremendous amount of force to break the rust connection of the wheel and axle. A high quality penetrating oil might aid in the removal. Be careful not to bend the wheel. I have also used a propane torch to heat up the sleeve on the wheel. CAUTION should be advised not to get the axle shaft too HOT. Too much heat could destroy the axle seal and/or axle bearing. Some wheels would not come off no matter what I did. In those cases, I left the wheel on the axle and removed the tire and/or tube for repair.

Check the bearing on the gear shaft, more then likely it has frozen. To replace this, follow the instructions in the manual on replacing the friction wheel then tap out the bearings in the side of the case.

SOURCE: can't get a bead on tire

Hey mate,

The problem in you are not getting enough air flow past the valve its restricting all the flow into the tyre!!!

With your valve stem, remove the valve with a valve removal tool, then you will get no restriction of air flow also use a hand air gun instead of tyre inflator this should pop the bead on then it will go down again, reinstall the valve (you can put some spit/saliva on the valve for a good seal) then use a tyre inflator and pump it up to the desired pressure...

Regards
Brad:)

SOURCE: My Troybilt Snow Blower wheels have locked up

Just found the same problem with mine.  The bearing on the gear shaft is frozen.  To replace these, follow the instructions in the manual to replace the friction wheel, then tap out the bearings in the side of the case, you'll probably find one frozen up.  As long as you're there, might as well put in a new friction wheel.  Mine is looking pretty worn after fighting the bearings all winter.

Trying to remove a bolt that holds wheel of snowblower (sears mod. 247.881900 ) Bolt turned out about half inch then seems to be frozen at this point.


Spray some Penetrating lubricant on the bolt and carefully tighten and loosen it a little at a time until you can get it loose. Be careful and don't force it.

What is the exact process for removing a flat tire on troy-bilt snowblower, model 8526?


Yes you need to prevent the wheel from turning. This the same process as removing the bolt from MTD mowers. You can also use a small impact wrench to remove the bolt. These are normal RH threaded bolts.

Be aware that after you remove the bolt you may still not be able remove tire assembly if it has rusted on to shaft.

How do I take the tire off from a Troy Bilt Storm 5024 Snow Blower?


The wheel is held on the axle by a bolt in the center. Remove the bolt (standard right hand thread) and the wheel should pull off. If there is rust or corrosion it is harder to get off and lubricating (with something like PB Blaster) the axle/wheel first will help. Here is a link to the parts diagram that shows how it is held on.

Front axle


Remove the tire. remove the strut bolts. remove the axle nut. push the axle out of the hub(hammer out if necessary). Pull/push the hub away to get the axle completely out. Use a pry bar to get the axle out of the transmission. replace in reverse order. add fluid if necessary.

Only one wheel runs in gear on my snowblower


Sounds like the key that locks the wheel to the axle shaft is missing. Look in a parts manual that came with the snowblower to see the key. Should be with the transmission break down or the wheel and/hub breakdown. If you do not have a parts manual depending on what brand and model you have, you should be able to find it on line.

Back wheels make a loud clicking noise


Hi. Loud clicking noises from the rear wheels are usually caused by movement of the square steel key that fits into a groove on the axle inside the wheel hub. This is what drives the wheels.
You will probably get a click for each revolution of the wheels.
To fix it, remove the rear wheels and wipe a thin smear of grease on the key and axle, then replace the wheels.
The grease will allow the key to move slightly without making a noise, and help stop it from wearing.
It sometimes helps to also remove the front wheels, and wipe a thin smear of grease onto the front stub axles. There is no key in the front hubs, but the grease helps to prevent the bearings siezing on to the axles.
Good luck. Neil.

I have a 1993 vulcan that needs new tires. I have the front wheel off no problem, but I don't even know where to start taking the rear apart. Would appreciate any expert advice.


Easy as pie. Put bike on center stand or use swingarm stand. Remove nut from rear axle. Remove pinch bolt from rear axle, and pull axle out. Take spacer from between frame and rear brake. Remove brake strut, and brake caliper. Pull wheel out of final drive, and lower to floor. You might have to let the air out of the tire to get it out from between the final drive and swingarm. After changing the rear tire inflate it to seat the bead, deflate to get back in place, then reinflate. Put some grease on the splines in the final drive before reinstalling the wheel, this will make it easier for the next change.

I have a Storm 2410 that has never seemed to drive well. If I hit deep snow or a packed down area from tire tracks the wheels start to jump/chatter and it stops driving forward, requiring me to assist it...


The chattering and poppong your hearing is most likely the wheel axle shaft jumping. For what ever reason something in that area has worn to the point that it no longer functioning normally. It could be inside the wheel or on the drive end of the splined axle.

Your user's manual and parts manual can be found onthis link: http://lawnandgarden.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/troybilt/1904697.html

Not sure if this will come thru but the shaft part number is 1904637. I would at least take the wheel's off and inspect the drive splines before seeking or ordering parts.

Thanks for using FixYa!
