    The question was about removing the flywheel, not the drive sprocket. Different side of the beast.

My craftsman 190cc 625 series lawn mower stopped and a friend said that there is a pin that drops when the mower blade gets caught and stops, I'm really in need of help on how to get to the pin if possible...


Wow it's a lot of work it's called the fly wheel key that is sheard. In every case like this you have to make sure you remove the spark plug or uncap the spark plug. Remove the pull cord assembly and then use a pipe or wooden board to keep the blade from moving underneath the mower. VERY VERY IMPORTANT TO USE A CLAMP TO HOLD DOWN THE CLUTCH BRAKE AND DO NOT REMOVE IT TILL YOUR FINISHED OR YOU'LL BRAKE OFF THE BRAKE FOOT ON THE LEVER. Use a breaker bar to remove the bolt holding the fly wheel down. Now here is the hard part. The fly wheel is made of aluminum and can brake easily as well as the fly wheels blades. If it cracks or the fly wheel blade is cracked or broken it's junk. If you don't have a Briggs and Straton puller you can use a lug wrench and pry the fly wheel up. You must first place the nut back on the 1 inch bolt on the center shaft so the threads are not showing at the top of the drive shaft. You have to hit the nut on the center hard but not like to hard to brake anything. After you get the fly wheel off you have to use the model and serial number to get the key from a lawn mower shop. Place the key under the fly wheel and very carefully watch to see if it lines up as you push the fly wheel down. Push it down from side to side so it fits flush. Tighten the bolt. Don't start it first see if when you pull the pull cord it moves with out pulling the rope back into the mower. You'll have to make sure the top bolt is tight like maybe 60 pounds. MJ

Why does my chain saw lose power and shut off as soon as it gets hot.can't restart until it cools off.


Check coil pic up or the electrical pick up in the pull string housing. Remove that and u will see the fly wheel next to that is the electrical pick up .look at fly wheel make sure magnets are clean surface ,they are in the fly wheel itself.after that remove coil and clean surface that faces fly wheel. Using a match book cover place it between fly wheel and coil ,make sure it moves but not falls out snug ,tighten coil screws and remove match book cover. If it dose it again re place coil look for small engine shop in your area and the can help get u a new one .weak spark means coil,sparkplug

I have a 6 hp self propelled Craftsman mower with


Ok this may be a simple fix. it has a high chance that the fly wheel key has sheared, this will cuse the timing to advance and bite your hand with the rope.
remove the pull starter and the cup ontop of the fly wheel, if you look straight down at the fly wheel nut you can see a cut out in the crank and fly wheel they should be aligned up if not it has sheared. use a lever under the fly wheel and put some pressure on to to lever it up then hit the fly wheel oposite side of the lever AWAY from the the magnet. and the fly wheel should pop up. replace the key and of you go..Make sure you use the OEM brigbs and strat key it is made out of alloy. The cause of this is the blade hitting a kerb or somthing hard,

How do you get to the fly wheel to check magnet. I removed the pully but their is a screen over the fly wheel, how do you remove the screen?


there should be about 3 screws that hold the screen over the flywheel. If you have a compact wrench it is the easiest way to remove the flywheel. Remove the nut and using a fly wheel puller, which can be made with a few screws and a piece of 2" x 4 " metal with drilled holes the exact distance of the flywheel puller holes in your tiller (much cheaper than purcasing one), work the flywheel loose and ta da there is the magnet.
