SOURCE: Scotts Classic 20" drive gear problem

In addition to lubrication problems, the plastic pinion gears can wear down or deform. This can cuase them not to engage, even if well-lubed.

I found some replacements at The parts number for the pinion gear is 30737-2, 30737-3 (left and right) for the Scotts Classic.

You can find the owner's manual, with part numbers, here:

SOURCE: Ford Explorer leaking rear differential fluid

Time to drain and replace the fluid. The gear lube does not last long in these rear differentials. Use Valvoline 85-140 weight semi-synthetic. It will slow or even stop the leak and prevent future wear. Only replace the seals if the leak gets bad. Hint: the fill plug is 3/8" socket wrench, the drain is 3/4" socket wrench. Attach a short length of vinyl tubing to bottle to fill the differential.

SOURCE: Broken rear axle on my Honda hydrostatic drive push mower

The last time I had a Honda mower in my repair shop I noticed that Honda doesnt do individual parts on its transmissions for mowers OR tillers.

You can fix this mower...but the transaxles are a bit expensive. Honda mowers do tend to be worth it though.

If the axle broke cleanly maybe someone would weld it back together?
I mean, the wheels dont turn that fast that balance would be an issue right? And I am sure the axle metal is cold rolled steel....which is to say it isnt thin cast material that would resist welding. If you take the transmission out of your mower and just take the parts to a good jobber maybe they would give it a try for 10-20 bucks? Dont expect a guarantee...but, for 20 bucks most shops wont even pick up a mower let alone try to fix it.

If this gives you another couple of years of service that would give you time to consider a replacement mower when the unit needs service again.

Good luck and be careful!

Warped or out-of balance brake rotor? Also keep in mind that loose rear differential trailing arms that allow the rear differential to squirm around can also cause steering wheel shake.

Greasing the axle

The front wheels don't use axles, instead they use roller bearings similar to auto wheel bearings. Scooter front wheel bearings are usually sealed bearings or shielded. If the bearing is stiff or ruff and a sealed bearing you must replace it. Sometimes you can revive a shielded bearing by soaking in carburetor cleaner rotating soaking rotating soaking until the bearing runs smooth. Then you repack the bearing with grease. To repack a bearing you must place some heavy grease in the palm of your hand. Hold the bearing at a 45 degree angle to your palm. Catch some grease between your palm and the inside of the bearing race. Force the grease between the race and the shield until you see grease coming out the other side. Do this all the way around the bearing The rear wheel are normally mounted to the trans-axle. The manufacturer considers this to be a sealed unit however you can open it. Remove the Allen head screws and split the axle case by move the slender side down the shaft until its open enough to apply grease with a gun. PUT LOTS OF GREASE. When you close the case most of the grease is going to be squeezed right out again. To prevent this i installed a Zerk fitting. WARNING Do not install a Zerk yourself. What i'm trying to do is to pressurize the case with grease in order to get the grease to where its needed. Do not use the scooter inside until you find its not dripping grease. Hope this helps

I took the ball bearings out cause the case was broke now i cant get everything back together and to get the tire on so i can drive what should i do?

I assume you are talking about a wheel bearing. The ball bearings are usually part of a sealed bearing unit. If that is so, you'll have to get a whole new bearing cartridge, pull out the race (part of the shell) from the old one, and set the new bearing back in. Is this a front or rear wheel? Is the "case" the axle housing, or just the bearing shell?

If your problem is just holding ball or roller bearings in place for re-assembly in a non-cartridge bearing, use the old bicycle mechanic's trick: load up the bearing race with grease, stick the bearings into the grease, then assemble the journal/axle.

96 chevy blazer rear axle bearing/seal r/r

No. Did you run some emery cloth along the race (bearing surface) to make sure it was smooth and clean? If you leave any part of the old seal or debris on the hub surface, damage the seal when installing it, not liberally packing the bearing with grease or the seal did not seat right you can have issues like yours. Make sure the seal is installed flush and if everything looked good as far as the axle and surfaces, pack more grease in the bearing. When you think there is enough grease in it, put more in. Put the grease in the palm of your hand and with the bearing held flat in the other hand repeatedly tap the bearing on your palm until grease comes out both sides. Then put more on it when you seat it.

1993 Ford F-150 drum brake problem

It appears the rear axle shaft seal is leaking. You will need to pull the axle and replace the seal. Then check the rear end for adequate gear oil. The iron filings I am not to sure about. It sounds as if something came loose from the brakes or brake hardware and got chewed up in the drum. You will need to replace the brake shoes and maybe the brake hardware kit. Always change the shoes or pads on both sides when working on brakes, rear or front. If the inside of the drum is not perfectly smooth it will need to be turned or replaced. If this were brake fluid leaking from the wheel cylinder the master cylinder would be low on fluid and your brake pedal would go down much further than normal.
