SOURCE: Change Oil

All lawn mower engines have a drain plug for draining the oil. Look for a square nut on the side of the engine

SOURCE: how to remove and replace rear wheel tire on my

Part # 634-0020 is listed for the FRONT wheel. Your post asks about the rear wheel. I was unable to determine if the same part number fits the rear.

FRONT
1) Remove plastic hub cab with a screwdriver around the outer edge.

2) Loosen the shoulder bolt in the center of the wheel (My guess is that you will need a 3/4 inch socket).

3) Leave the bolt and all washers/bushings together and remove the entire wheel assembly as a unit (the bolt serves as the axle).

4) Note the component locations and install the new wheel exactly as the old came off. Do one side at a time to be sure the reassembly is in correct order.

Working from the bolt-head to the mount hole, the assembly should go as follows: Shoulder-Bolt, Wave-Washer, Wheel-Bushing, Wheel, Wheel Bushing, Bell-Cone Washer, Mounting-Hole.

REAR
1) Remove plastic hub cab with a screwdriver around the outer edge.

2) Straighten and remove 1/8 inch cotter pin from center of axle and slide ratchet-spur off the axle while making note of the tooth direction.

3) Slide the remainder of the wheel assembly off the axle.

4) Remove the small shoulder bolt from the ratchet-pawl and note the direction. Remove the ratchet-pawl and ratchet-plate from the wheel. On the inside of the wheel is a "pem-nut" which may need to be held with pliers.

5) Reassemble Ratchet-Plate, Pawl, Pem-Nut, Spur and Cotter Pin in the reverse order.

As was mentioned before, doing one at a time will help keep the parts in the proper order.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: lawn mower pull cord

This works best with two people. Remove cover and pull cord will be inside cover. If your handle on pull cord is attatched to a metal ring up on the handle, you will need 8 foot of new pull cord.
With all the old cord removed, wind cord pulley 6 revolunations, now, have someone hold the pulley, while you string the new cord thru pulley and out the cord hole on cover. Be sure to put a knot on the end going thru pulley. Draw cord all the way thru and out of the cover. Attatch the handle and let it rewind. You will have extra cord, this will be used up going from engine up the handle. I hope this helps

Yard machines by mtd 11b-509n062 lawn mower is leaking gas from what appears to be a fuel line. The fuel line is a few inches below the gas cap.


Not sure what the question is. If the fuel line is leaking it is because it is not on the bottom of the tank well or it has a crack and needs to be replaced

How do I change the fuel filter on a yard Machine 6 Hp mower


A lot of the smaller machines do not have fuel filters, unless you put one in line yourself. Some will have a small screen in side to fuel tank or if you separate the tank from carb you might find a filter, most likely your machine is not equipped with a filter. Good Luck...

Recoil will not pull. The walk behind MTD,Yard Machine mower, a B&S 500 Series stalled while mowing. I went to restart and pull cord will not pull more then a few inches. How do I go about the fix?


If all the safety gear is working on the mower; Possibly sounds like you let it run low on oil and the engine is locked up.
Which would mean a new mower.
