Toro model 20332. Have put new transmission, belt and new drive wheels on back. When I use the personal pace bar it makes a grinding noise. Doesnt make noise unless I push that down.


Sounds like either the gears on the wheels or ends of the trans shaft are bad, or the internals of the trans are bad. Are the parts actually new-new, or used and new to the machine, you didn't specify. What happens when you manually spin the pulley on the top of the trans in either direction?

Why do I hear grinding noises while driving?


Hit in the rear axle may have damaged bearings or brake parts. Jack up the side you hear noise from, put on stand, then have helper rotate wheel while you look underneath and listen to see where noise is coming from. Use length of old fuel or heater hose, one end in ear, to locate exactly where noise comes from.

Self-propelling action on 917.378771 not working


This type of mower uses a gear box driven by a v-belt. First check the v-belt. Is it in place and does it turn when the drive is engaged. You can also check the drive pinions in the wheels. These can wear out or "chew up" the insides of the drive wheels. I doubt it is the transmission, these are tough little units on this mower.

Grinding noise when pushing in neutral


Sorry, I was ill. H1N1.
Your Craftsman has a vertical drive-shaft, but the puzzle is that the engine is NOT RUNNING, and there is a "grinding" noise from under (the hood?), (the deck?), (the right side, left, front, or near the back?). I can only surmise that there could be a wheel bearing out, a wire piece that may have gotten wrapped around the drive shaft, wheel spindle, or is dragging under the deck, thus making a sound. If the components are all clean and free of debris, raise the whole tractor if possible, and "roll" the wheels - one at a time. You could prop up the front, doing each end separately. If this doesn't generate a noise, then the ONLY possible solution exists within the engine, OR, the starter. Some tractors don't "freewheel" when rolled around, and the friction from the wheels can roll the engine via the belt-drives, possibly creating a source for your problem.

How to remove rear drive wheels on old MTD 21


Daren Ingold's suggestion works only for the right rear wheel on my 19+ year old MTD Yardman 21" self propelled mower. The ratchet spur on rear left wheel is held on by a bolt in the center of the axle and a spline. Remove the center bolt and washer. Pry the ratchet spur off the spline by using three medium blade screwdrivers wedged between the wheel and the spur gently tapping the three screwdrivers in succession until the spur is half off the spline. It will come off easily after that. Remove the spur, noting direction, and remove the wheel and replace it with one of the front wheels (they're all the same design) if it is in better condition and use the rear wheel for the front. Good luck ever finding a new replacement for this particular wheel. My mower is 19+ years old but runs perfectly otherwise. Stored in dry basement.

You can do this job your self with common tools. Auto zone carries the wheel bearing you need and can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the bearing. Here is a tip, to try to break the old wheel bearing from the axle. Just loosen the 4 bolts 3 mm that hold the bearing to the axle and put the wheel back on and drive the car back and forth a few times, hard on the brakes to break it free from the axle. Once the bearing breaks free from the axle, it should take you under 45 min to get the job done. Good luck and be safe.

ME GE SELECT HEAVY DUTY DRYER IS ABOUT 10 YEARS OLD. IT RUNS WELL AND HAS GREAT HEAT BUT THERE IS A LOUD GRINDING NOISE FROM THE REAR. tHERE IS ALSO SOME BLACK DUST/PARTICLES ON THE REAR COVER . IS THERE A...


This black dust may be that of the drive belt. The belt wraps around the dryer's drum through a tensioner and in to the motor pulley. TYpically there is a felt material of sorts at the back of the drum. This is the "seal" between the back of the rotary drum and the stationery back wall. I expect the dust your seeing though is the drive belt, becoming old and hardening from years of heat, best to change.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

Toro 20016 self propel


If you take the wheels off and remove the belt from the small pulley on the the front axle underneath the pulley you should see a small transmission. You usually can split this unit in half . You will see two gears and sometimes one plastic and one metal. The plastic one is usually the culprit. Hope this will help you out. Donnyb60
