Question about Remington PowerMower 17-Inch 60-Volt Cordless/Corded Electric Combination Lawn Mower

1 Answer

The front right wheel repeatedly comes off because the axel is too short and you did not use nuts but caps to secure the wheels. For an expensive machine, this is poor and shoddy design and has been a constant problem for me. Also the bag is too low to the ground and does not collect grass well and has worn from rubbing on the ground. I am very dissatisfied with this mower and wasted my money.

Can you drill a small hole down through the end of the axle and put a washer and cotter pin to keep the wheels on?

Can you attach a flat piece of plastic or aluminum sheet under the grass catcher to prevent the bag from wearing as it slides along?

Next ....use the best oil you can the engine.......they are also not made as well as they used to be (service life has been reduced ) so take extra good care of it.

How do I remove my Harley front wheel?

Hi Anonymous, safely and securely block up motor cylce with wood so front wheel is about 6 inches off the ground, then block front wheel. Remove caliper and hang it out of the way with bungy cord. Remove axle nut and loosen right slider cap nuts. With a long screw driver or drift bang out axle from the left side, remove wheel. When you re-install tighten slider cap nuts and torque axle nut to 50-55 ft lbs. then loosen slider cap nuts and tap bottom of leg with a plastic mallet a couple of times to center fork assembly and re-tighten nuts to 15 ft lbs. install caliper and torque bolts to 35 ft lbs. Good luck

Is there a wing nut available to replace the front axel wheelnut

Replace wheel with a quick release wheel or just bring correct wrench with you. Wing nut would need to be very big to get proper torque to hold wheel correctly

It is the axle bolt and it goes right through the wheel hub.
You will need to support the bike, as when this axle comes out , so will the wheel.
remove the axle nut and tap the axle out with a brass hammer, if it is corroded you may also need a brass drift slightly smaller than the axle to drive the axle out.

How do i remove the rear drum on a 1986 chevy p/u with 8-lug 14-bolt rear

The brake drum is most likely just rusted to the axle. Spray a liberal amount of WD-40 where the drum meets the axel and repeat. Apply some pressure to the drum via a screwdriver or pry bar and smack the axel with something like a three pound sledge hammer and it should pop loose.

How do you get to the front wheel bearings on a 1999 toyota tacoma so that i can grease them?

For the most part it is very similar to doing a brake job, you will need to gain access to disc area. once you have removed the caliper you will need to remove the dust cap, this will allow you to remove the nut that secures the disc to the spindle. after you access to the front bearing, remove and set aside, put washer and nut back on, slide rotor out tapping it to remove rear bearing, remove nut/washer and hand pack with wheel bearing grease. re assemble, check and bleed brakes if necessary, Good Luck!

Removal of front wheel

First remove some air from the tire so that it will be able to make through the forks once its loose. standing in front of bike facing it. on your left side of wheel is a bolt at the axel that should be a large allen/hex head bolt loosen it to take pressure off of axel. You will see a large hole on that same side of axel. I usually put a large screw driver through this to give me leverage for turning the nut on the other side of the wheel which is your next step. There may also be a cotter pin on one of the sides, Im thinking the right side but I'm drawing a blank since the bike isnt sitting in front of me right now. If you see one of course take it off and use a new one when you replace it. Before going much further you will need to remove the brake caliper. It will be heald on by two bolts that are probably dull gray in color and are obviously holding it to the fork. Dont let the brake hang once its loose. Prop it up so there isnt tension on the brake line. Go back to taking the wheel off. Use one hand to hold the screwdriver or other leverage device that you've stuck through the hole on the left side of the wheel and the other to turn the nut on the right side of the wheel. Take notice of washers and spacers and where they go. Laying down a piece of cardboard as a tray and using a sharpie to label what things are and where they go has always been helpful to me. Once the nut is loose you may need to do a little "hammering" to pursuade the axel to come out towards your right. I have hammering in quotations because you'll want to avoid actual metal on metal hammering. Just some slight tapping should get you going. And dont lose sight of those spacers and washers. They can role to the most inconvenient places. Once the axel is on its way you should be able to grab its end and pull the axel on out then pull the wheel forward and down through the forks.
