SOURCE: do I need to replace all tires on peg perego john deere

On these, only the 2 rear wheels are the gear wheels. You will just need to replace the tires on those with the rubber ones if you choose to go that way.  Good luck!

You have a bad disk in the starter solenoid pull the starter and go to a shop and buy a new solenoid or flip the disk in the solenoid and sand the two contacts so that it will make contact.

SOURCE: Need to remove rear wheels to replace tires on MTD riding mower.

most likely rust has taken over
find some liquid wrench or pb blaster and spray the axles liberally and let it penetrate the axles and wheel hubs where the axle goes through.
use a 2x4 and a hammer to tap against the wheel hub to try to move it down the axle then tap in back on to try to free it up as the penetrating oil works in, spin the wheel and tap in different areas of it
the worst case cenario would be to use a torch and heat the axle and hub up and drive it off, but it sounds as though you are moving it some and with some patience they eventually should come off
when you put them back be sure to coat the axle with some grease and do not forget to reinstall the key stock in each wheel, if they have it
the bolt in the center of the axle is all you need to remove and note where the washers came from and where they go back.

hope this helps you some

L130. How do I align front wheels?

on a mower , with wheels facing straight ahead ,use a piece of timber across one wheel facing forward
use a second piece on the other wheel
measure the distance close to the machine and at the ends of the pieces of timbers
there is no set difference but the end measurement should be around 1/8"to 1/4 inch smaller than the distance close to the machine
as the camber is preset in manufacture , you can check it by placing a level vertical across the wheels and seeing if the bubble is in the middle of the level
up to a 1/8 bubble positive ( leaning out) will be acceptable but nothing leaning in at the top
admitted this is a rough method but for general yard work it will be close to the manufacturers setting, will make steering easier and reduce tire wear in travelling over hard surfaces

Where is the oil drain plug on the sx75 John Deere riding mower

It is not a plug, it is a drain petcock (nozzle) you will need about 2 feet of hose that you slip over the nozzle, then turn the Knurled Knob (brass ?) behind the drivers side rear tire (maybe the passengers side rear tire) It will probably have oil on it and may not be that visible, it is right at the bottom of the engine. Not that fun...but it is easy.

What are the basic maintenance tips needed to maintain my lawn tractor L145 22 HP, 42"? Ex: What needs to be greased, when do I change the oil ect? Thanks Larry

Engine oil should be changed every 50 hours of use or annually, whichever occurs first. The oil should be a 10W-30 and it takes about 1.5 quarts with filter change. Check/clean the air filter every time the oil is changed. After cleaning the filter, hold a light to the filter to see of there is light coming through. If the light is very faint or none at all change the filter. Spark plugs can be changed every other oil change. The front axle should be greased every service, there is a grease fitting on each side of the axle towards the top of the spindle, by the wheel. There is also a grease fitting on each blade spindle. They are not easy to grease without taking the belt shields off. Also check the bearings on the deck by grabbing the pulleys and try to rock side to side. Check the belts for cracks, and make sure the tire pressure is set right. If your tire pressure is off the mower will cut uneven. I usually set tire pressure 10psi for the rears and 12 psi for the front. Hope this is what you were looking for, Daniel.

My Ariens 1540 will not go anywhere. Engine starts and runs fine but suddenly pushing the steering levers does not make it go. Just got it from a person that says one of the Hydraulic units overheats and...

hi there rermortimer

have you made sure the bypass levers on box hyrdo boxs are disengaged ( that is in the drive mode ) not push / free wheel mode

here is web site to download a owners manual

in the manual it shows the levers at the rear of machine

it is possible that the units may have o/heated and dropped there additive pack and or the belt that drives the hydro boxs is slipping , check that the box has correct amount of oil and have no air entrained in the oil , ( if it does cavatation is highly possible ) especially if oil has got quite low
alot of heat can be generated from this condition and can damage the pump and motor units in the hydro boxs!!

cavatation sounds quite noisy , makes a knocky / rattley/ rumbly noise , vibration can be felt
in the drive system as air bubbles explode in the oil and is quite damaging to hydro units in itself

may need to drain and refill both units with top quality synthetic type oil which will handle tempreture better , then purge air from units but check simple things 1st

have a look let me know

cheers pauly46

What kind of lubricant should I use in the transmission of a John Deere 165 Hydro?

I grew up with John Deere's and worked at a shop assembling Cub Cadet's way back when.

From all the threads I have read..that's an Eaton Transmission.

You can actually use a good SAE 30w motor oil in it. . some folks use a 5-20W or even Dex/Merc universal AT..but the general consensus is a decent 30W motor oil. Cheap and easy to find.

This is not an actual hydraulic motor, so any of these oils will work. Not to forget JD has HyGuard.. which is similar to the dex. Keep it simple and Stick to the SAE 30W..

Clean tranny off to prevent debris from entering the case.
Remove fill plug and Drain plug
Drain when warm
Replace drain plug
Remove vent plug
Fill until oil appears at vent hole
Rotate axle to remove trapped air
Check fill level
Replace vent plug and fill plug

GO go go
Mow mow mow

Best of luck
