The caps are held on by a washer and they usually will snap off with a long screw driver

SOURCE: Broken rear axle on my Honda hydrostatic drive push mower

The last time I had a Honda mower in my repair shop I noticed that Honda doesnt do individual parts on its transmissions for mowers OR tillers.

You can fix this mower...but the transaxles are a bit expensive. Honda mowers do tend to be worth it though.

If the axle broke cleanly maybe someone would weld it back together?
I mean, the wheels dont turn that fast that balance would be an issue right? And I am sure the axle metal is cold rolled steel....which is to say it isnt thin cast material that would resist welding. If you take the transmission out of your mower and just take the parts to a good jobber maybe they would give it a try for 10-20 bucks? Dont expect a guarantee...but, for 20 bucks most shops wont even pick up a mower let alone try to fix it.

If this gives you another couple of years of service that would give you time to consider a replacement mower when the unit needs service again.

Good luck and be careful!

Jack the mower up at the rear and make it stable before doing any work on it, remove the rear wheels by removing the hub caps if they are still on the wheels and remove the cir clip and washer on each wheel and remove the wheels. there will be a key way on each axle when you remove the wheel, make sure they are put back in their place when assembling the wheels onto the axles or you will not have any drive on the wheels
Remove the drive belt, brake rod etc then support the trans axle before removing the retaining bolts and removing the trans axle from the mower. hope this helps.
If you are not mechanically inclined then you should leave the repairs of the trans axle to the mower repair shop unless you are buying a new or reconditioned trans axle, in which case you can fit the new trans axle in the reverse order of removal.

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.

After the E-clip is removed and the washers slide off the wheel should slide off. This being a rear wheel it has to come straight off due to the key. Nothing else holds the wheel on. If it is not just sliding off, it is okay to use a little force to pull it off.

I hope this helps.

Please describe how to remove back tire from lawn tractor troy built


The back wheels are held on by a bolt threaded into the rear axle. To gain access you need to pop off the little black cap with a screwdriver, Then with a 12mm socket remove the bolt and large washer( used to hold the plastic cap), then slide the wheel off. If it wont slide off, due to corrosion ( Rust), then soak it with WD-40 or some type of penetrating oil. Note, some tractors have a keyed axle, if yours does....dont lose it, and when you reinstall the rear wheel, install the key AFTER you install the wheel. Do it from the out side NOT the inside, or it will ( could) push off when reinstalling the wheel. If that happens you wont have any drive on that side.

Hope this was helpful

I need to remove the rear wheel on my MTD Lawnflyte 604 ride on lawn mower. Any ideas on how to so please?

Hi there

Removing the Tyre isn't a hard job just follow these steps and you will be fine..

Park the mower on a flat surface and put on the parking brake.

Slide the jack under the rear axle on the side the wheel needs to be removed. Jack it up to about 2 to 3 inches.

Pry the cap off of the center of the wheel with a Flathead screwdriver.

Grab the cotter key forced through the rear axle and pull it out with a needle nosed pliers.

Slide the wheel off of the axle.

Very easy to do...

Rear end

Remove the center dust caps from the rear axles, start the tractor up and put it in gear and observe the axles, if one of them is spinning freely inside the wheel, you have lost the 1/4" square key that pins the wheel to the axle. Replace the key and you can go back to mowing. This often happens when a flat has been repaired and the wheel pushes the key out the back as you slide it back on the axle. Sometimes it will just barely catch at the edge of the wheel and work for a while then fall out and you not even know it

My riding mower is stuck in gear. I can shift

If the wheels aren't facing straight forward you may have broken an axle.

I cannot get the rear wheel off the tractor. Question... the ''square key''... I thought mine was missing & secured another one, but WHAT DO I DO WITH THE SQUARE KEY ? Is the original still in the hub part...

Here is what my manual says. It is for a 14 hp 42" mower deck. 6 sped transaxle.
Block up axle securely.
Remove axle cap, retaining ring and washer to allow wheel removal (rear wheel contains a square key. Do not lose).
Repair the tire and reassemble.
On rear wheels only: align grooves in rear wheel hub and axle. Insert square key.
replace washers and snap retaining ring securely in axle groove.
Replace axle cap.
If you send me your email address I can send you a picture as I do not know how to post pictures on here yet.
