Need repair sequence for flat front tire on DLS 3500 Craftmans Riding lawnmower. Actually, just need to remove it and I will take to local tire repair shop for repair.


Go to your local auto parts store, purchase a tire plug kit, leave the tire on the machine, plug the tire per instructions (personnel at the auto store will explain the use of the kit to you) and pump up the tire.
When you are done, put the tire repair kit in your car.
These things are lifesavers, every car should have one.
Once you have done a few flats, you can do them with air still in the tire in about a minute.

Good luck, Gary

How do i remove left rear wheel to replace tire on craftman riding mower model 917272140


First Raise the mower and set the draw bar on a block or jackstand or something. Now pull off the black plastic cap it might be harden from age so pliers will help here. Now take a screw driver and stick it in that small grove in that E-clip and turn the handle to prize off the E-clip. Now remove the large washer there may be two. Pull and rock that tire back and forth there is a steel keyway in the axle. It all could be rusty so spray it with oil and use a hammer on the back side if needed.

I would like to change the front tires lawn mower


Remove the wheel from the mower.

Let all the air out

Lay the tire flat

Push on the tire to release the grasp on the diameter of the rim (use a malet if ou need to)

Apply soapy water to the tire and rim

Insert a standard screwdriver between the tire and rim and pry the tire over the rim in one spot

Then work the screwdriver around the rim, pulling the rest of the tire up and over as you
go

Repeat the last step for the other side of the tire, same side of the rim though!

Viola, there you have it. Shade tree mechanic at it best. And NO labor cost$$$!!!!!

07' mitsu. endeavor. what is the warning light on the lowest right hand corner of the dash. it looks like an upsidedown half circle with a jagged line as the bottom of it and an exclamation point inside of...


This sounds like the low tire pressure warning light. The tires have small sensors on the back side of each valve stem that monitor your tire pressure. I live in the northeast and when the temperature really drops I get the same light. Usually once you get rolling the friction of the tire on the road heats up the air in the tire causing it to expand to it's proper pressure. You may want to check your pressures to ensure that they are inflated properly.
