SOURCE: 1998 Chevy Blazer making clicking noise in front

Slim possibility it could be a bearing too. When it's not under load and is free-wheeling (2wd) the stress on the hub assembly changes, making the clicking more noticeable. When under a load, being driven, the pressure on the bearing would be more steady (in 4wd) and might make it less noticeable, if at all.

SOURCE: John Deere L120 transmission high pitch noise and no forward move

Try jacking the unit up. Start it up and try moving pushing the forward and reverse back and forth and see if it does it then. It sounds like an oil way in the hydrostatic unit has a check valve stuck. Of course make sure that the fluid lever is up. Hope this will help you. donnyb60

SOURCE: Sprinkler will not move forward properly

I have 2 John Deere 4010 traveling sprinklers and they both do the same thing. I took them apart and the plastic worm gear has flat spot on them. I am having difficulty finding replacement parts.

SOURCE: Pedals don't turn the front wheel.

You have to take off the tire, pull back the red cap along the pedal post and then pop the white plate off (small flathead screwdriver) to expose the inner hub off the wheel. There is a small metal plate with four screws...maybe the older kids snapped off the screws. You'll need a small flathead screwdriver, pliers or adjustable wrench and regular sized phillips screwdriver.

SOURCE: pedals don't 'engage' the wheels.

Take off the wheel and slide the red metal cap along the pedal post. Pop off the white plate with a small flathead screwdriver. This will expose the inner hub of the wheel. There should be a small metal plate held to the hub of the wheel with four screws...check the screws...did they snap off? You can also call the Radio Flyer customer service line (8-5) and get some help if you need a new wheel.

Can the front wheels be locked


I just Fixed this problem today with the bike Radio Flyer Trike 4 in 1. I just opened the red adjustable hub, and found one spring detached, and both springs that control the 2-pawl system of ratchet system very loose. I tensioned both springs but it worked for one day only. Called customer service, provided all the necessary information and they promised a new front wheel.
In 3 business days a received, a brand new front wheel with pedals and fork. The pedals are fixed on wheel, and is the best solution from radio Flyer for a Kid who is grown with the bike from 18 months to 36 month, and now at age 3 rides the lovely Radio Flyer like a dare devil. Thank you Radio Flyer.
Having a strong mechanical background, I opened system, both sides of the wheel. To dissemble and repair, I had to remove one pedal on the side of the big white hub. What I found inside was a Ratchet wheel, with rounded teeth, and 2 Pawls totally worn out.
I fixed drilling 4 holes all the way through metallic plate, ratchet wheel, and the hub of the wheel. Inside the hub cavity, I used 4 washers and nuts to secure tight all 4, 3/32 stainless steel screws.
My grandson is very happy and more confident, because now he can move the bike forward, and backwards, and the most important, now he can use the pedals of the front wheel to stop the bike. Which it was a safety flaw by original design of this bike, but solved now by Radio Flyer. The new wheel Red Hub has 2 Positions. 1 PULL TO COAST. 2 PUSH TO PEDAL.
