It's a lock nut. But you should have no trouble removing it. Just hold the steering wheel, or turn it all the way to one side. But a socket on the nut below the gear and ratchet it off. That's all there is too it.

    It is splined inside, probably just a little stuck. Use some force.

SOURCE: John Deere LA175 lawn tractor front wheel bushings

Remove the tire and wheel from the spindle. Take a long punch or similar item and reach in the center of the wheel hub where the spindle goes. Locate the space in between the inner and outer bushing and tap the edge of the old bushing until it comes out. Now go in from the other side and do the same with the other bushing. This one will be a little easier to do since you don't have to hunt for the center space. Put the new bushings back in the same way just be sure you drive them in STRAIGHT

I wouldn't think so. I know you DO need the seat switch depressed in order to start the engine.

Rebuild steering on john deere L120


Hi there, I am not familliar with the L120 specifically, and suggest that you go to: "John Deere Lawn Mower Manuals" online and select your model from there. In my experience with this type of unit there are two ways that the pressed gear on the end of the shaft is fitted.. Real engineers make a ferrule, usually about twice the diameter of the steering shaft, and have either a tapered end with a threadded end for a nut which often has a split pin thru the thread like a trailer wheel bearing, and a key in the shaft and taper. Machines made with a lesser labour input often have a fixed pinion which means replacing both the shaft and the pinion. If it is the tapered end with a nut, they are often very tight and cannot be removed while mounted in the machine. They may require a sharp heat and severe blow with a good hammer. I do not recommend that you do this if you are not competent as the blow to the nut can do much damage if not hit square with a cushion of copper between the hammer and nut. The fact that you do not know how to do this job probably means that it is cost effective to employ a shop which does this type of work.

Just had same problem with my craftsmen. There is a very inadequate little nylon bushing supposed to keep that shaft stable. When worn out it allows that shaft to move and puts the gears in a bind. It is located on the end closest to arced gear where shaft hooks to drag link. Its a pain.
