Ihave the cap cover off the craftsman mower tire, how do I finish

There is a greasy retaining ring and washer on the tire that has to come off, I don't really want to pull it too hard and strip it. How do I remove these parts to replace the tire with new rim?
thanks

Hi..my name is Keith..just wipe the grease off..and you can see the retaining clip..and it should resemble a "C"..and it has slots in it..near the axel shaft..and you stick a flat blade screw driver in the slot and pry it up..but cover with a rag rag or put safety glasses on..because sometimes that "C" clip will go a flying..and the rim should slide off...i hope this has helped..if not..write me back

Remove front tire on lawn mower


Jill,

If the tire has a hole have you considered a Plug?

If thats not an option before you can pull the tire off, there should be a small snap ring holding it in place. please use blocks to block the tires and do the following.
  • Park the lawn mower on a level surface, then place the wheel chocks in front and behind the rear tires.
  • 2Place the jack under the frame at the front of the mower. Raise the mower up and place the jack stands under each side of the frame. Lower the jack until the mower frame sits firmly on the jack stands
  • 3Remove the plastic cap in the center of the wheel by hand; this should expose the snap ring holding the wheel to the axle.
  • 4Pry the snap ring off the axle with the flathead screwdriver. Slide off the washer, wheel and the shim washers from the axle.

    To replace tire follow steps 3 and 4 in reverse order. place shim washers back on and then wheel and then snap ring, etc...

    hope this helps

    I want to repair one of the rear tires. How do I disassemble?


    Hard rubber or plastic cap in center to be gently pried off, this will expose a C clip holding the wheel onto a splined shaft. Jack the mower frame up until the tire is off the ground. Remove C clip and then the wheel, being careful keep it, the washers, and the key in order. If you lose the key, which will fall out when you pull the wheel off, axle will not spin the wheel when you put it back together. Note tire can accidentally be put on backwards, so make sure you do not do that or you will rub a groove right through the tire. Mower tires cost more than car tires. Most tire shops can also fix large mower tires.

    With all the side screws removed it should come right off. There will be a little resistance, but that's normal.

    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.
